Vatican Post Office

Edit This

Some Romans, frustrated with the some times too leisurely rate of the Italian Post, have turned to the Vatican for help. It costs the same as Italian mail, but you must buy Vatican stamps and can only mail them (get this) in the Vatican. In addition to the "Citta' del Vaticano" postmark, you can tell your friends that the stamps were blessed by the Pope. There are Vatican post offices inside the Vatican museums (near the entrance) and two locations in Piazza San Pietro

I was in Rome 24th - 30th June. I sent postcards from the centre of Rome on the 26th which arrived in the UK within 5 days.  I also sent 2 postcards from the vatican wtih vatican stamps on them on the 28th June.  So far (August 29th) they have not arrived!!
