I'm looking for info (links, personal experience, cost, etc.) about luggage storage at these locations:
-FCO airport in Rome
-main train station in Rome
-Marco Polo airport in Venice
-main train station in Venice
We are debating how to travel from Rome to Venice and the luggage issue is a big factor.
PS I've done a lot of searches and read a lot of threads but keep reading conflicting posts and thought this might be the most efficient way of getting the info all in one place. Thanks!
Thank you thank you thank you! What you provided is perfect! I had done searches and read what came up but different people had posted conflicting info so I wanted to make sure I could get the right details. Thanks again!
I'm not sure what your plans are, but we were able to leave our big suitcases at our hotel in Pisa while we went traveling about with our backpacks, and they didn't charge us a cent for 5 days storage! So if you are staying overnight somewhere, check with the hotel first.
Of course this assumes that you will be returning to the starting point. We went to France to pick up an car and just stopped back by the hotel to retrieve our suitcases.
As Cynthia said, it is per piece. You leave your luggage with a staff member and it is stored in a big room, you do not have access to it once you turn it over to them. If you need to get in it, you'll go through the entire process again, because the place where you retrieve it is a different line from where you drop it off.
I actually got to see their system (I'm being generous with my terminology here) a couple of years ago when they couldn't find my bag. They had me go downstairs with them to the storage room (a big room full of industrial shelving) to find my bag, which wasn't on the shelf their tagging system said it should have been.
