Internet

You will find many Internet access points in the Venetian streets and alleys. These places are usually haunts for university students and tourists. If you are a resident, a worker or a student from the Venice municipal area, you have free Internet connection through the city Wi-Fi network. If you are a visitor you can buy access here.


Telephone

In each “sestiere”- which in Venice, is equivalent to a district – you can find public telephones. Telephone cards can be bought from the tobacconist, newsagents, post office and currency exchange offices. To phone an Italian number you must dial “0” then the city area code: e.g. 041 – the area code for Venice, and the number – 123456.

To call an Italian number from abroad, you must dial “00” for international, “39” for Italy, then the city area code and the receiver’s number – e.g. 00 39 041 123456.

To call abroad, while you are in Italy, you must dial “00,” the country code, the city area code (without the “0”), and then the receiver’s number. For example, 00 33 (France) and the telephone number without the “0”. To make phone-calls through the international operator/Telecom Italia, you must dial “170”

You can buy stamps, telephone cards, send letters, packages, telegram, faxes, etc.  To find out the address of your nearest post office and get further information on times and services, visit the Italian Post Office website.
