Hi, I was going to send a small gift (a tie) to a friend in Milan, while I live in Paris. Does anyone happen to know if using la poste is a good idea? I've had tons of mail get lost coming to and from Europe and Canada, but maybe within Europe the poste is more reliable? Also about how long will it take to be received in Milan? Thanks!

Our post always arrives fine and stuff sent to UK and Australia arrives ok. A letter from my SIL in Australia arrived in 3 days and stuff to UK takes about that too. La Poste offers different options with express delivery but some are silly prices. My son's girlfriend left her phone and they wanted 53€ for next day delivery, 5 got it there in 4 days.

A tie should be ok.

Anything more fragile and the amount of bubblewrap makes a taxi-delivery look competitive.:p

When I arrived here I sold some books on ebay and found it was cheaper for my friend in the north of England to post them to France than for me to do it.
