I will be travelling to Italy in mid July. I will be visiting Venice, Florence and Rome for 13 days. I plan to take these gadgets with me: Kodak digital camera and Toshiba laptop. Currently I use metro pcs for cell phone service in the United States and this carrier does not work overseas. I would like to take a smart phone with me for quick use for photos, downloading needed information and its small size which will fit nicely in my very small bag that i will carry around daily. I imagine only making 2-3 phone calls back home while there, but would like phone service in case of emergencies. Does anyone have any suggestions on a phone i should get to take with me? Could i possibly buy one there? Inexpensive options preferred. Also, I have been trying to figure out what adapters and plugs are necessary to ensure all these things are charged and can work. Currently, I am confused because i have yet to find a concise answer. Does anyone have any links to direct me for this? I will also be bringing along a straightening iron and curling iron.
Thanks for your help!
