What kind of wall jacks are used in Italy and if possible can anyone direct me to a site where plug adaptors are sold. Thanks

Same as in France - the ones with two rounded prongs. I have a 4-piece kit from Austin House that covers most of the world's plugs. Don't forget your converter, too, if you need one!

I saw a site selling plugs with three rounded prongs that were specifically for Italy. I hope the hostels in Italy just use the 2 prongs as it's probably too late for me to try to order the 3 prongs without paying out the ass for priority shipping.

The third prong is for grounding - which would come in handy if, say, you were bringing along your fridge. No worries - the two-pronged version is all you need. More reassurance here.
