Main Post Office


The main post office is below Piazzale Roma in front of the vaporetto stops. Note that you need to take a ticket on entering the building and then wait for your number to be shown.

You can buy stamps from post offices or tobacconists. The cost for a postcard stamp (francobollo) is 1 Euro for Europe, 2 Euros 20 cents to the US, 2 Euros 90 cents to Australia (correct July 2017). Full details of prices and weight limits and the relevant zones.

Be careful when buying stamps in a tobacconist in Venice
Some tobacconists in Venice do not sell stamps, they sell stickers for a private postal service - Friendpost. They are slightly more expensive than normal stamps (1 Euro 30 instead of 1 Euro for sending a postcard in Europe), they take much longer than normal post, and they can ONLY be posted in the post box in the shop. If you put them in a post box they will be thrown away!
