Phone calls in Italy

by Andrea Segura - Friday, March 3, 2017

Even though WhatsApp, Skype and other apps are mostly used for making international phone calls nowadays, there might still be confusion on the dial codes. Whenever you are using your own US or Canadian cell phone to call a number in Italy, you are making an international call. You will also need to dial accordingly when using Skype.   

  • The International Access Code (IAC) for the US and Canada is 011 and for Italy it’s 00
  • The Country Code (CC) for Italy is 39 and for the US and Canada it’s 1
  • Area Codes in Italy can be various digits in length
  • To call Italy from the US or Canada, dial IAC + CC + Local Number.

Example: The local telephone number of the ExperiencePlus! headquarters in Italy is 0543-753405. The number could also be listed as +39-0543-753405. In both cases, you would dial 011-39-0543-753405.
