Internet – Airports, bars, restaurants, hotels and even city centers like Florence offer free wi-fi for its guests. However, sometimes there is a time limit and / or amount of data and the networks are usually slow.If you really need a fast internet connection, I recommend buying or renting a modem and purchasing Skyroam services.
