Useful numbers in Tuscany

Here is a list of useful numbers tourist and travellers in Tuscany might need during their stay. In Italy there isn't just one general number, there are different numbers depending on the emergency. If you are already in Italy just dial the number. General emergency numbers don't need codes, if you are dialing a local number then you need a specific area code and then the number needed. If you are calling from abroad always dial 0039 before the local code and the specific phone number.

How to call Italy from the US

  1. Check out the time! Italy is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time, which means it's 6 hours later in Italy than it is on the East Coast of the United States, and 9 hours later than it is on the West Coast.
  2. Dial 011, the international access code.
  3. Dial 39, the Italian country code.
  4. Dial the city code, including the initial 0 (ex. "050", "0574", "0577", followed by the remaining digits).
