Shipping Stuff Home from Greece

My son is studying in Greece and would like to send some of his stuff home before he moves to Rome. The stuff would be some of the warm weather cloths and a few purchases. How would he do this? Can he just go to a post office?

In addition to the post office, the usual companies like UPS, Fed Ex, and DHL will do this as well. DHL is more popular in Europe thus the rates might be a bit cheaper.

yes, the post office will work and probably is the cheapest, but there is no telling when things will arrive. If you go with the companies mentioned above you will have better ability to track the shipment, but I sent stuff from Germany home this summer and DHL put the box into the regular mail and it was really torn up. Pack well with lots of tape and hope no one opens it for inspection as you may not have the same security once it is opened. Good luck.
