Can I use my iphone 5 only for internet on hotel wifi in itAly

I want to travel to Italy and NOT use my phone to call, but my hotel offers free wifi, so can I disable the phone and use the internet and email for free? I know If I brought my iPad I can, but it is about room in the luggage. I heard if I put it on airplane mode and turned off the push notifications I can, but I don't want to be charged roaming fees. Also can I text from iPhone to iPhone free from Italy to canada?

  • In settings you are able to turn of cellular data, so you can only text or call when you have wifi. You can always turn it back on if you need it for some reason. Go to > Settings > Cellular > off
