US Verizon iPhone 5 on Italian vacation?

I've Googled this, and asked at both the Verizon and Apple stores, and am getting conflicting information, so I turn to you. Have any of you taken a stock (not jailbroken or unlocked) Verizon iPhone 5 which is under contract (not purchased at full price) to Europe and used the GSM SIM slot with a prepaid European SIM?

I understand that I can't use the CDMA radio in Europe, nor am I interested in doing so. I'd like to buy a prepaid GSM SIM at the airport in Rome and put it into the GSM slot and use that while I'm there, then go back to using my regular CDMA number when I get home, without incurring any Verizon charges (aside from my normal monthly bill, of course), and without bricking the phone in the process. Have any of you successfully done this?
