Electric outlet

by 11elvese11

I will be travelling to Rone, Sorrento, florence and Poland. I need to plug my batterie chargers and my laptop and am very confused as to what kind of adapter/converter need.

Anyone?

Re: Electric outlet

All you need is a plug that will work in eastern Europe, I believe it has two round pins instead of the usual flat ones.

You'll need the 220 volt adapter. Its the one with the two round rods. One of these adapters will cost you between 5 and 20 american.

Bookmark this site and you will be able to check the system yourself for what ever country you visit. If you fill out your VT profile (country of origin at least) those answering your question can at least know whether you have 110 volt or 230v equipment.

What is wrong with people! If you don't tell us where you're from how can we tell you what kind of adapter you need.

Converter converts 240 volts into 120 volts.
Adapter simply allows your plug to fit into the wall socket.

Most battery chargers and most laptops are dual voltage, i.e. 120 AND 240. They will be marked on the back of the appliance so turn it over and look. If it only says 120 volt, you will need a converter to convert the current or your appliance will fry.

If they are marked 120-240 or 120-220 volts, you do not need a converter. This is good because they can be heavy in your luggage and cost more than adapters.

If your appliance plug does not have two round pins to put in the wall plug, you will need to get an adapter that will fit your appliances and then plug into the European wall sockets that only accept two round pins. These are very inexpensive and can be purchased at most drug stores, Target, WalMart, Radio Shack, any good luggage store and most department stores. Find one that will take a 3-prong plug if that is what you have on either the battery charger or your laptop.

If your battery charger is an older one, it may not have dual voltage. Just go to a drug store and get a new battery charger. They need to be replaced fairly often anyway and it will save you buying a converter.

The web site give above (and below) has photos of all this so you can see what you are looking for.

My apologies, I wrote this too fast. I am from Montreal. Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer my question. Much appreciated.

Travel Tips for Rome

Piazza Venezia

by croisbeauty

Piazza Venezia is probably the most visited square of Rome. It starts where the heart of ancient Rome used to be. The monumental Il Vittoriano dominates the whole square catching visitor's attention in approaching to the square.
Il Vittoriano, as coloquially called, is the monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, the King of Italy, and was built during Musollini era.

Walk into history

by jglsongs

The Basilica di San Clemente really is a 'must see' church, however a lot of people unfortunately miss this place. Three churches in one- the street level is a 12th century church behind a 17th century facade. Walk down one flight of stairs, and you're in the 4th century; one more flight down, you're in the original 2nd century street and can even hear the sewers of Rome murmur in the background.

Portici di Piazza Vittorio

by Tunda_F

I always wonder the night time walking on the roads of Rome,passing through squares,big corners,near the market places or on the main streets:how come there is such a desert? I do not mean Rome isn't populated the night time.I found many big or small cities are the same,but in Rome this look like to be harder to imagine,i mean:where the hell are all those people leaving this city the day time?..thousand persons living in not much km2 all sleeping right now? it is like if the city itself travels through thousand years when the real dark comes down,to come back the same as yesterday,tomorrow morning.As if never ever happened,as if.....

Eat outside

by kernboy about Suggestun Cafe

This is just one of a number of different restaurants on Via Veneto but from what I experenced one of the most friendly and relaxing. Most of the other restaurants have a glass surround whereas here you are more open and with a sunny day it's just perfect. While it is on a main road the traffic is not right beside you and its usually very quiet. To be honest there really isn't such a thing as a bad meal in Italy. I was with a crowd of people and we all tried each others meal, no one was let down.

Watch the change of guards at Presidential Palace

by WanderingFinn

A very nice thing to do if you happen to be in the right place at the right time. Also this happens near the famous Fontana di Trevi so you don't have to go too far or you do two things at one hit:

Rome's Presidential Palace is located on the highest hill of the famous seven hills of Rome. Also very near to the Fontana di Trevi as mentioned above.

First you see a colourful march of soldiers dressed in black, with red stripes in their trousers and black-and-red hats. White "belts" and shoulders complete the nice looking uniform. Then a soldier in green, carrying a flag takes the command and marches in front of the unit and the change of guards take place.

But...it doesn't end here, don't walk away: music lovers get their part now. A military band in green and with caps start to play.
