Stow Your Bags at the Basilica di San Marco in Venice
Reserve a luggage locker to park your suitcase or backpack before you visit St. Mark's Basilica.
The Basilica di San Marco, a.k.a. St. Mark's Basilica, is one of Venice's most popular tourist attractions. It's easy to visit (especially if you opt for a "skip the line" reservation), but there is a catch: You can't bring your suitcase or backpack into the church.
Fortunately, the Basilica offers luggage storage in a deconsecrated church just across from its famous lions (which are on the left side of the Basilica as you face the main entrance).
The Stow Your Bags facility consists of luggage lockers, and each locker is big enough to hold one carry-on suitcase. We suggest reserving a locker online, especially if you're visiting during peak periods such as weekends, public holidays, and summer vacation season.
