Italy Telephone Cards

All phones in Italy are able to make both Domestic and Long Distance calls.

  1. Insert the card
  2. wait for a second dial tone
  3. dial the country code (01 for USA) area code and number.

If you prefer to charge the call to your credit card, the AT&T Direct access number from Italy is 800-172-444. To make a call:

  2. Dial the country code, area code and number
