Best Answer
  1. Dial the International prefix 011.
  2. Dial the country code.
  3. Dial the city code.
  4. Dial the phone number.

In many cases, area codes in other countries are ordinarily quoted with a '0' at the front, such as 01 for Paris or 06 for Rome. In most cases, you drop that leading zero, as in 011-33-1-xx-xx-xx-xx for Paris. However, in a few cases such as Italy, you do dial the 0, as in 011-39-06-xx-xx-xx-xx for Rome. It can be quite confusing; however, if you see a number beginning with a plus sign, you should be able to substitute the '011' prefix for the plus sign and then dial the rest of the number. (For instance, +33 1 ... or +39 06 ...)

Some other countries - Canada and many (but not all) Caribbean islands - use area codes within the U.S. system, and so you dial those as 1 + area + number, although international rates will still apply.
