Post

Le Poste (www.poste.it), Italy’s postal system, is reasonably reliable. Most people use posta prioritaria (priority mail), which is Italy's most efficient mail service, guaranteed to deliver letters sent to Europe within three days and to the rest of the world within four to nine days.

Francobolli (stamps) are available at post offices and authorised tobacconists, which keep regular shop hours. Look for the big white-on-black ‘T’ sign.
