Send a Parcel to Naples, Italy
The city of Naples is Italy's third largest after Rome and Milan, and is home to around 960,000 citizens who live city limits. Although approximately 4.9 million people live in the Naples metropolitan area making it one of the largest metropolises in the Mediterranean Sea.
The city is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the World and the first Greek settlements are believed to have occurred in the second millennium BC. Indeed the city played a key role in the merging of Greek culture into Roman society and as a result became the cultural centre of the Roman Republic, and its influence remained felt throughout Europe following the fall of the Roman Empire.
Unfortunately Naples was the most bombed city in Italy during the Second World War and as such most of the city was reconstructed and rebuilt after the war. Whilst it has a large business district, the Centro Direzionale, the city still has high unemployment levels and continues to suffer from political corruption.
Despite this it has the fourth largest economy in Italy. The Port of Naples features greatly in the economy and the Port is one of the most important in Europe and actually has the second highest number of passengers going through it, surpassed only by the port of Hong Kong.
Also despite the World War II damage Naple's historic city centre is actually the largest in Europe and it classed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, thus ensuring that if your visit is a cultural one there should be plenty to interest you in terms of the historic nature of the city, and many Piazzas, Palaces and Castles to be explored around the city.
The Port of Naples handles a large amount of ground based parcel transportation and thus you should always ensure that adequate paperwork accompanies your goods to avoid any delays, particularly in the shipment of perishables.
We estimate that it will take anywhere between 2 - 5 days to post to Italy, depending on your chosen service.
