often get e-mails from readers who want to know where they can store luggage
after leaving their hotels, during day trips to Venice, or when passing through
Venice Marco Polo Airport, the
Venice Cruise Terminal, or the
Venice Railway Station. Here are our
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

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.) If lines are long or you want to save money, try the
privately-owned Keep Calm Point in a shop
next to the station. Show
