The largest island in the Mediterranean, and an autonomous region in its own right, Sicily sits just off the toe of Italy. As a city state, it once reigned over southern Italy and Malta, but became part of the Italian kingdom in 1860. The arrival of the first humans here, dated to around 8,000 BC, seems to have led to the disappearance of dwarf hippos and elephants. They must have enjoyed what grew in the fertile soil and pleasant climate - now used to produce oranges, lemons, olives, almonds and grapes. The oldest tree in the world also took root here - a sweet chestnut reputed to be between 2,000 and 4,000 years old - which also claimed at one time have the biggest girth: a circumference of 190 feet.
Sending parcels to Sicily is easily done, as long as you follow one simple rule. Consider the Italian post office. Then consider the unexplained delays and unexpected industrial action it might be subject to and dismiss it from your thinking altogether. Then rely on the UK’s largest online parcel delivery company - called Parcel2Go, in case you were wondering - to point you in the right direction , and that direction is to employ the tried and tested and trusted services of a courier to Sicily instead.
That’s right, we recommend you send your parcel to Sicily with FedEx, Parcelforce or TNT - big names with a big network of support door to door. Where they do fall down, however, is in smoothing the path of the casual enquirer who merely wants to find out which service is best and how much it costs. A simple enough request, you might think, but one thwarted at every turn by a confusion of jargon and terms and conditions which obscure the truth. We, however, have gone to a great deal of time and trouble to present you with unvarnished facts and figures so you can select the means of your parcel delivery to Sicily quickly and easily. It should cost you less with us too.
Of, one final touch, be sure to add the postcode to when you send a parcel to Sicily - you’ll see it referred to as the Codice di Avviamento Postale or CAP.
