    • If an when wifi is available, yes, it does make good sense to use VoIP in order to make calls. The problem is that there are very few open wifi networks available even – in the large cities. What makes better sense is to rent or buy a SIM card for your unlocked phone. Cellular Abroad offers them online. You can get one before you arrive in Italy, saving you the hassle of purchasing one locally.

    • Thank you for mentioning Cellular Abroad. I just checked and it seems reasonable, although there is a hassle with a different phone, of course. Calling cards are also not universally supported, i.e. there is no guarantee that pre-paid card will work to call from Italy to USA, as I just learned. One is stuck with using AT&T with their horrendous rates. What a shame in our times when it should all be a fraction of what these corporations charge. I don’t see a reliable solution at the moment, one can only try to restrict oneself to using Skype in hotels, where WiFi is often of poor quality. Travel is a challenge!
