Telephone code (Italy)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The telephone area codes in Italy include area codes for landlines and mobile networks as well as special numbers that can be reached without an area code. The area codes are administered by Telecom Italia .


Landline numbers begin with a leading zero, which is always dialed.

The telephone prefixes of the fixed network are dialed from outside Italy with the international telephone prefix (country code) +39 and then the connection number including the leading zero, e.g. E.g. for Rome : 0039 06xx xxx xxx , whereby the two leading zeros ( 00 ) are used as international traffic elimination digits in most countries .

Cellular network

The area code of the mobile network does not have a leading zero and always start with a 3, e.g. E.g .: 00 39 3xx xxxx xxx

The various mobile dialing codes were once assigned to the individual providers. With the possibility of number portability, which is free in Italy and is therefore frequently used, the numbers can no longer be assigned to a specific mobile operator right away. The following area codes are assigned when a new number is issued:
