ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES
 
THE ELETTRICAL CURRENT IN ITALY IS AC, the cycle is 50 and the voltage is 220. A tourist carrying electrical appliances to Italy should have a transformer, either obtained before leaving the U.S. or bought at an electrical appliance shop in Italy. Check the local voltage with the hotel before using electrical appliances.

Plugs have two or three round-pronged plugs, making an adapter plug necessary. Some sockets have larger holes than others. Many electrical appliances such as pressing steam irons, hair dryers and water heaters are available in the U.S. for use abroad without the need of separate transformers or adapters.  If you want to bring your own electrical appliances you should to have a large power converter or power transformer to convert Italy's higher voltage to the lower American voltage
