Subject: Canada Direct telephone number for Italy
Hello Ziners: We have just returned from 10 days in Rome. Before we left Canada I checked with Canada Direct, by telephone, using their automated system for the access number to use in Italy. The number I was given was 1721001. This is not the correct number. I have called Canada Direct since returning to Canada and they said that this number has been changed since at least the beginning of the winter. When I quizzed her on why that number is still in the automated system she could not answer my question. So, if anyone wants to use Canada Direct service when travelling my suggestion is to talk to a person and not rely on the automated system. This is the first time we have had a problem using Canada Direct, but you can bet that from now on I will talk directly to someone before leaving home.

Happy Travelling, Pauline Boll in wintery southern Ontario
