Shipping to Italy?

Has anyone here shipped a guitar to Italy? A guy just bought a guitar of mine on **** and he is from Italy. I went to the post office to get a quote and they said they cant ship musical instruments to Italy. So I went to UPS and FedEx and it seems like they will but I was reading on other forums NOT to deal with people in Italy regarding musical instruments/guitars. What should I do?
He had over 300 transactions and 100% feedback so it seemed like it was legit?

Where is your risk ? You'll get the money before shipping. I sold a BFP to Italy two years ago, no problem.

I've heard some bad things about shipping from the US to Italy. Make sure you get the insurance before you ship it.

I am probably going to ship via FedEx since it is cheaper then UPS. And I will insure it, I shipped to Norway a few years ago with no problems but reading some horror stories on the net have me worried.
