Default Question on Luggage Storage

Four of us will be flying in FCO airport the day before our cruise. We have reservations at the Hotel San Giorgio for the night. The flight arrives that morning and we plan on taking the train to Civitavecchia to the hotel but the hotel check-in isn't until 4 pm. We are also wanting to spend the day in Rome. I was wondering if the hotel would allow to check the bags while we went back to Rome or is there somewhere we could check our bags before he head to Civitavecchia.
Thanks!

Quite possibly the hotel will hold your bags. Have you asked the hotel? Probably the best source of info.

I have never had a hotel refuse to store my bags pre-check-in

You don't have to go all the way to Civitavecchia and then return to Rome. That's eating up a lot of your precious time, and there's no direct train from FCO to Citivecchia -- you have to go through Rome. The trip will take you around 90 minutes each way, at best.

I suggest you take either the train or one of the express bus services (cheaper and with luggage storage space below) from the airport to Termini station in Rome. There you can check your luggage while you sightsee in Rome for the day.

When you're done with your sightseeing in Rome, go back to Termini, claim your luggage, and get on the train to Civitavecchia.

Here is some additional information on the luggage storage at Termini:

Thanks! That sounds like the thing to do to save time and expense!
