| Telephones in Florence, Italy
Public telephones are located all over the city, however, poor maintenance is a problem and frequently many are out of service. Avoid machines which only take coins (both the least practical and least reliable) and use telephone cards instead.
Cards, available at various prices, are sold in tobacconist shops. Otherwise there is a public telephone office in Via Cavour. The user is assigned a cabin and pays the cost of the call at the end.
