Travel to Europe (Italy) - what's the BEST option for not paying extorted fees?

We're heading to Italy in May. The Droid X apparently is not supported on the network over there. I would have liked the idea of having GPS ability (for maps), but it really looks way too expensive.

has anyone done this sort of trip recently & what options did you use? What did the net result give you as far as your phone bill?  What's the cheapest way to do this (short of don't use a cell phone) ??

Thanks in advance.

I used my BlackBerry Storm2 in Italy last year, and had it activated last month when I traveled to the UK as my Droid X2 won't work overseas, as you know. Big mistake. The reason I replaced the Crackberry was software issues that caused it to reboot on it's own, which of course, it did often. After I returned I discovered that Verizon will lend you a phone for your trip, and even ship it to you in advance. Wish I had known that, I really missed Google Maps and other apps. Enjoy your trip!
