I know it's important to prevent a high bill, jdsjr. If your daughter will be using her phone for calls, text, or data,  she would be charged the roaming rate. You can review the pricing for Italy with our trip planner: http://vz.to/1nwVdDQ

What phone does she have?   Not all phones can roam in Italy But almost all the smartphones sold in the last 3 years can. 

Cost is $1.29/min for call and $0.05 to receive text and $0.50 to send text.  Data is real expensive, and if any data is going to be Used get the global data bucket 100 MB for $25. 

However, even better is if she has a phone that can roam and is unlocked, is to get a local SIM in Italy with data and the use FaceTime or Skype or Google voice to call home.  Don't have her to forget to use wifi whenever possible.
