Always make sure to connect to the WIFI network of the hotel where you are staying so that you can surf as much as you want and use any of the packages you chose to purchase only when you are walking around outside.

If your device is not on the list of supported prices then you will have to get a local SIM card in Italy. If you have arrived in Italy or are about to arrive in Italy, you can take out an Italian SIM on the same day (as long as it is not a Sunday when it is difficult to find a cellular company that is open).

The SIM card must be loaded with a surfing package so that you can connect to the high-speed cellular internet network, it can then be loaded in any supermarket or Tabbachi stores spread across all cities in Italy.
