How to mail stuff back home?


What is the best way to send stuff I buy back to the United States? I will have to mail things I buy back home instead of shlepping them around for a month but not sure how to do it.

Is FedEx the best way? How expensive is it?

Throughout Italy are there many FedEx offices?

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Italian mail service is notorously slow. Maybe contact Fedex in the US for an idea on pricing. As with anything it will depend on size and weight.
