Baggage Storage in Venice

Left luggage or Deposito Bagagli

Where to leave bags after you've checked out of your hotel, or when you want to avoid hauling heavy suitcases across the city.

1. When possible, use your hotel.

The easiest way to store luggage is to leave it with your hotel's front desk. Nearly all hotels will hold bags for a few hours before you check in or after you check out.

At smaller hotels, you can simply leave bags with the receptionist; at larger or more expensive hotels, you'll need to store bags with the concierge or luggage porter (who should be tipped for the service).

  • Suggestion: If you have an early departure, have mobility problems, or are just spending a night or two in Venice at the beginning or end of a cruise, we strongly urge you to consider staying at a hotel near your point of arrival or departure. (See our No. 1 Venice Hotel Warning.) This is far easier than hauling luggage through the streets, on crowded and high-priced water buses, or in even more expensive water taxis. For hotel suggestions, see our Venice Airport Hotels, Venice Railway Station Hotels, and Venice Cruise Terminal Hotels articles.

2. Otherwise, use a deposito bagagli office.

Left-luggage offices are located at:

  • The arrivals hall of Venice Marco Polo Airport, near the post office. (The airport also has free luggage carts.) **

  • The Venice Santa Lucia Railway Station, near track 1. (The last time we checked, hours were 6 a.m. to midnight.)

  • The Piazzale Roma (where buses and taxis enter and leave Venice). Click here for a Google satellite map with a pushpin icon that shows the location of the deposito bagagli office. (Note: The office is separate from the Cooperativa's waterside headquarters building.) **

  • The Venice Cruise Terminal's Marittima and San Basilio buildings, where left-luggage offices are normally open on days when cruise ships are arriving and departing.

  • On the Calle delle Malvasia in Castello, within walking distance of the Rialto Bridge and the Piazza San Marco.

** For current rates and hours of  the deposito bagagli offices at Piazzale Roma and Marco Polo Airport, see the "Luggage Storage" section of Cooperativa Trasbagagli Venezia's English-language Services page.
