We all want to call home at some point in time during our vacation to check in, say “hi” and brag about all of the amazing adventures we’ve been on; but doing so from a hotel room or cell phone can be extremely expensive for a very short call. One way to avoid these outrageous long distance charges, while still keeping in touch with loved ones back home, is to purchase a calling card while vacationing in Italy.
International calling cards can be purchased at any convenience store or newsstand and can often be found for sale in cafes and coffee shops as well. They are sold by different amounts of minutes of talk time and are much more reasonably priced than calling long distance through your cell phone on using a landline.

There are many benefits to using a prepaid phone card when travelling to Italy:
As you travel around the country, collecting memories and exciting stories of all the amazing things you’ve seen and done, don’t wait for your vacation to be over to call home and make your friends jealous! And don’t spend outrageous amounts in long distance fees by calling from your hotel room phone or your mobile. Simply walk into any tobacco or grocery shop and ask for a una scheda telefonica internazionale for your home country, pay a fraction of the price and make that call right away!
