Proxy
the proxy is a computer/server between our pc and destination. Naturally connecting to proxy by setting it up the pc address for the target will not be from the origin but that of proxy.
There are both free and premium proxies (generally you must make a subscription), second naturally are most reliable.
There are many sites of free proxy (es. ProxyMore, Open Proxy List) you must do a more selective search by finding just ones of the country of our interest and that they are working, fast, 100% anonymous (some they aren’t really, once setup proxy you can check it with this test).
Lastly you must set it up in your favourite browser (simply Google for it).

There are also various proxy via web, in this case you just must submit desidered URL in a specified field and confirm.

pro: it doesn’t require any kind of installation, so it’s O.S. indipendent solution
cons: hard to find a proxy (especially free) that match with criteria described just above

Tor
