The Deposito Bagagli office in Venice's Santa Lucia Railway station is convenient if you need to store a suitcase for the day, but waiting lines can be horrendous in the summer or on busy weekends. To avoid the crowds--and to save money on left luggage--head for the privately-owned storefront next door.
Keep Calm Point is primarily a shop that sells souvenirs, drinks, and other items for visitors. However, it also provides baggage storage at rates that are cheaper than what you'd pay at the railroad station--and because most visitors don't know about it, you can drop off or pick up your bags without waiting in a long line.
Here's how to find and use Keep Calm Point:
To avoid the steep stairs in front of the Santa Lucia railroad station, do not exit via the station lobby.
Instead, leave through the archway just beyond Track 1. This will lead you to a gentle paved ramp that is friendly to wheeled luggage, strollers, and wheelchairs.
As you near the bottom of the sloping path, you'll see a sign for "Deposito Bagagli" on your left, outside a storefront on the station square. Go inside.
Rates for storing luggage at Keep Calm Point are slightly lower than in the railroad station's baggage office. More important, you'll avoid standing in a long line. (Note that a "normal size" bag is anything up to 70 cm or 27½ inches in height, including wheels and folded handle.)
Checking your luggage is easy: Just drop off your bags at the cashier's desk inside the shop's entrance, where you'll be given a receipt.
Nicola, the owner, will take your bags upstairs to the storage area and bring them down when you come to collect them.
