Thanks, your suggestions give me a starting point. Very helpful!Not sure what your Internet options might be - though that will depend on your needs. But for mobile phones, I'd look into one of the "cheap rate" services: Free, BandYou, Sosh, Red or the like. The big advantage is that you don't have a fixed contract, so could take the service for just 3 months (as long as you remember to cancel at the appropriate notice period). Most of them offer "free" (i.e. included in the monthly fee) calls to Italy, though only to fixed phones. Take a look at the respective websites to get an idea of whether their services will suit you.
