Mobile Phones & Internet in Livorno

There are cafes in Florence that offer WiFi if you plan to bring your WiFi enabled device (laptop, PDA, iPad, etc.). Internet Train has a number of cyber-centers throughout Florence; among them are the Stationze Central (Piazza Stazione 14/38) and the Astor Caffee (Piazza Duomo 20). There are plenty of other places to access free WiFi in Florence, too. (Just remember to take your ID with you to sign up.) Here are a few:  Moyo:  (Santa Croce) - Via dei Benci - popular cafe bar on Via dei Benci - serves food all day (WiFi is switched off at 7pm, just before the cocktail hour). Nai'ma:  (Uffizi) - quiet cafe bar just behind the Uffizi Gallery. Luna Rossa:  (Santa Croce) Via Giusseppe Verdi - cafe bar on Via Giusseppe Verdi. Bar Negroni:  (San Niccolo area) - Via dei Renai - This bar is quite polular in the evening, and quiet in the day time. Seating outside under a canopy. High bar:  (San Niccolo area) Via dei Renai - this bar has a bit of a pub atmosphere, popluar with tourists and students. Munaciello, Ino, Kikuya Pub, Studio Emanuelli Viale Gramsci, Collins Irish Pub, Tijuana - Ristorante Messicano, Salamanca, and many more with WiFi access are found in the Via de' Benci/Santa Croce area. Bottom line - you will have no trouble at all finding Internet access in Florence. Be aware that some establishments may ask for a modest per-hour fee to give you the password to their WiFi network. If you find a "free hot spot" in Florence, remember to at least buy something or tip the staff.

Most major mobile phone carriers will work in Florence. However, mobile phone roaming charges accrued on smart phones can be expensive -- $2 or more per minute. Per message fees for sending text (SMS) messages are also high. Data charges for accessing e-mail and the Internet via your smart phone can get very expensive as well. To avoid any nasty post-cruise surprises, we recommend that you call your cell phone provider BEFORE your cruise to assure the most cost effective communication mode for you. If you plan on using your phone, make certain you have international roaming activated and that you are comfortable with this cost.

If you have an international phone with GSM network capabilities or a phone with a SIM card, your phone will work in Florence. However, roaming charges, and, international calling charges can be expensive. Make certain to contact your cell phone provider to activate international roaming prior to leaving on your cruise. If you plan on extensively using your phone, you may want to purchase a SIM card locally to take advantage of local calling rates. However, this usually does not make sense if you are visiting a port for a single day. You can usually find the pre-paid SIM cards at airports, the numerous cell phone shops, and other locations throughout Florence. Another option is to purchase a SIM card before you leave for your travels. The advantage of this is that you are ready to go when you arrive and don't waste your time looking for a cell phone store. Plus, you will know your phone number even before you leave. Once you've purchased your new SIM card, simply remove your home SIM card and replace it with the new. You will receive a local phone number with your new SIM on which you can be contacted. This should be on the information you receive with the card.

Another option in is to purchase a Pay As You Go phone. You can buy a Pay As You Go phone at any cellphone outlet. You’ll easily find an outlet at the airports or any shopping mall. However, this also does not usually make sense if you are visiting a cruise port for only a day.

Skype is a cost-effective way to make phone calls while on the road – often for free, or no more than pennies per minute. However, you will need to find an Internet café and connect to their WiFi Internet system to use Skype. If you want to be computer-free, buying an international phone card would be a good way to go.

If you don't have a mobile phone and don't want to pay too much for calling internationally, pick up an international calling card - you can find these at the post office, some news stands, visitor centers, convenience stores and some supermarkets. They come in many different denominations and each will have its own rate for different countries. You buy a card, then use an existing phone (usually a payphone) to call a special number listed on the card. You can then dial the number you wish to call and you will be charged at the cheap rate.

Note:  Due to an anti-terrorism law passed in Italy in 2005, passengers wishing to use the Internet in a public facility may be asked to present an internationally recognized document (such as a passport) to the establishment providing public communication services.

Special Note:  Pre-paid telephone cards to be used for making calls at payphones can be bought at electronics shops, tobacconists' (tabacchi), newsstands and bars. As Italy has the highest cell phone per capita rate in the world, public phones are becoming less and less widespread. You can rent a mobile at major airports, although many long term visitors choose to buy a cheap cell phone for less than 80 euro and a pay-as-you-go SIM card from one of the three cell phone providers (TIM, Vodafone and Wind). You can also purchase this type of solution prior to your departure. If you plan to be in Europe for a substantial amount of time and need a phone, your best bet is probably to buy a new or used tri-band or quad band phone before you depart. (These can easily be found on Ebay, Amazon, Cellular Abroad or some other site.) Then all you need to purchase once you're in Italy is an Italian SIM card.
