Tuscany is region in central Italy, beloved of tourists and British second-homers. It is home to no fewer than six UNESCO World Heritage sites: the historical centres of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza; the square of the cathedral of Pisa and the countryside of the Val d’Orcia. As you can imagine, all these sights and more are a magnet for tourists - Florence alone receives over 10 million of them every year. Historically, the region has been a major draw for influential figures - some regard it as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance - and Petrarch, Dante, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo and Puccini have all called it home.
The simplest way to go about sending parcels to Tuscany is to consult an acknowledged expert in the business of sending stuff to places - a position we’re happy to assume, given that we’re the UK’s largest online parcel delivery company. You might think that we’d merely point you in the general direction of the services of the world’s international postal services, but you couldn’t be more wrong. They’re prey to unexpected delays and unwanted industrial action, both of which can make the business of conveying a parcel to Tuscany far from certain. And at Parcel2Go,we like certainty - which is why our vote goes to sending a courier to Tuscany instead.
Not just any old courier either, but the big names everyone knows like FedEx, TNT and Parcelforce. They’re the guys who really know what they’re doing - except when it comes to explain what they do to the general public. Trying to find out which are the equivalent tariffs and services so you can make a well-informed comparison is a bit of a nightmare job - it could take you an age and, even then, there’s no guarantee you’ll be master of all the facts. But you will if you arrange your parcel delivery to Tuscany through us, because the facts are all we give you - everything you need, plain and simple, to make your decision. We’re cheaper too, more often than not, than the price you’d get if you want direct.
And just before we sign off, here’s useful tip: it’s always better to send a parcel to Tuscany fully-equipped with the correct postcode - in Italy, it’s called the Codice di Avviamento Postale or CAP.
