Time Out says

Unbelievable hours and impressive architecture attract visitors for much more than sending postcards

You don’t have to spend a cent on postage to enjoy the view in this grand hall of bureaucratic activity. The walls above the functional counter level alternate between tall paned windows and swirling floral frescoes. The vaulted skylights lining the ceiling add a hushed echo to the room as locals routinely take a number to pay bills and post packages while surrounded by architectural beauty. The twenty-two-hour window of operation makes sending last-minute wishes to relatives a possibility no matter what time you finally remember to look up their address, and a stationary shop in the corner sells packing materials to protect any fragile souvenirs. 

Time Out tip: Unfortunately, enjoyment is restricted to the eyes only – photography is not allowed inside the post office.
