How easy to set up new phone plan?

I'm travelling to Italy, Slovenia and Croatia and I understand that the cheapest option is for me to by a SIM card on arrival in Rome. But I'm a bit technology challenged and my previous experiences with loading a new SIM is that it's never as straightfoward as I'd been led to expect. I really don't want to spend hours stuffing around when I could be out seeing the sights. So how easy is it to buy, install and setup a SIM card? I'm Australian, have an iPhone5 (needs nano SIM), don't speak Italian and only have one night in Rome before heading off.

Thanks for any advice.
