Need Italy Sim Card

I will be flying into Bologna. Where is the best place to get a sim card for my phone. Are there different choices?

Bologna, Italy

I think you can find a sim card at the airport in a "tabaccheria". Otherwise you'll find many "tabaccherie" and cellular company shops in the city center. There are 4 companies: Tim, vodafone, wind and 3, (actually from last monday also carrefour and coop can sell a sim card but i dont know the offers). The 4 i said have got more or less the same tarifs...I use Wind but there isnt such a difference from one to another

providing of course, you have a GSM compatible cell.

Annoying detail: last time I bought a SIM card, they asked an id card and made a copy of it.

A TIM sim card costs 3 euros and you get 5 euros of traffic time on it. You can buy them at a TIM shop or a supermarket and you need only show your passport.
