While researching cell phone plans for Italy, I came across a post from bvlenci on Fordors. I'm wondering if you might be able to help demystify the myriad of plans and help me figure out the best plan for our trip.
I will be traveling 11-Sep to 06-Oct, 2014. I am taking a cruise (departs/returns to Venice 14-Sep to 21-Sep) with friends that has ports of call in Italy, Greece and Croatia. My boyfriend will fly over to meet me in Venice 20-Sep and we will travel together throughout Italy when the cruise ends.
We would like to be able to communicate with each other (phone/text) and to folks back home while staying connected so that we can continue running our business while away.
We each have an unlocked iphone (a 3 and 4). What would you recommend? I would love to have a number before I arrive but it is not a deal breaker.
I really appreciate any assistance you can offer. We will be going to Venice Cinque Terre, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Pompeii. We will have a car for three days and will drive Tuscany (possibly with a side trip to Assisi). Any tips you have on those areas are also greatly appreciated.
