La Dolce Vita! Life really is beautiful in Italy. Mouthwatering pizzas and pasta, spectacular architecture that seems almost otherworldly, kindhearted people, and a rich cultural heritage that is impossible to discover just within one trip. Italy has long been one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Each year it is visited by millions of people, who – once they get a bite of the country – keep coming back for more.

We've handpicked our favorite eSIM plans for your next trip to the land of Paolo Conte.

The best eSIM plans for a trip to Italy

Generally, you can find eSIM plans for a good price (in terms of $/GB) in Italy compared to other countries.

To find your best plan, you must determine what your priorities are. Do you need plenty of data? Do you need a package that lasts more than a week? Do you need a phone number ? Perhaps you don't plan to spend much time online and need access to the internet just in case of an emergency. Perhaps you are already using 2GB of mobile data a day and will need something more robust ? Let us help you out.

Our best picks for short stays (approximately 1 week)

If you're planning to spend only a few days to Italy (roughly a week) and do not consider yourself a heavy data user (you can check your data consumption in your phone to estimate how much you need / day), those eSIM data plans by BNESIM and Nomad are great options.

With their 3GB Italy plan, valid 14 days after activation, the Israel based provider Simtex is a great option that will suit most light data user's needs for $8.
