Amazon.com - DHL Worldmail - 1-3 weeks to Italy
Amazon.co.uk - Air Mail - 2 days-1week to Italy
Nice thing about DHL worldmail is that I've never paid import
duties, maybe because the parcels land in Frankfurt Germany
and then are shipped to Italy by snail mail, so German customs
think "oh, in transit" and Italian ones think "oh, from within EU";
or maybe just because I'm lucky.
bookpool ships to Italy only by courier since they say that
"DHL worldmail is unreliable to Italy". I've written and told
them I've used it (from Amazon!) at least 50 times over the
years without a single problem - but no joy. Sad, bookpool
would be the cheapest one if they shipped by DHL worldmail ;)
