The Vatican postal service is considered to be the best in the world. This is a great reason to use it during your visit to this city state. You can be absolutely sure that your letter or postcard will be delivered in the shortest time possible.
Strange as it may seem but the plain white wagon by the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica is the post office of Vatican City. Inside, you can buy a beautiful stamp, an envelope or a postcard. Do not forget to fill in all the necessary fields according to the instructions on information leaflets.
One more important thing to know – you need to drop your post into a post box situated in the territory of Vatican City. Indeed, Vatican City stamps are invalid in the territories of other states.
By the way, the most popular post box is on the roof of St. Peter’s Basilica.
Prices: the cost of such memorable souvenir is about 4 euros, depending on the type of stamp and the destination of your postcard.
