We 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 Terminals, or the Venice Railway Station. Here are our suggestions:
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).
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 Piazzale Roma (where airport buses, taxis, and People Mover trams enter and leave Venice).
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 Larga Malvasia by the Hotel Canaletto, where Venice Luggage Deposit has an office within walking distance of the Rialto Bridge and the Piazza San Marco. Show this page on your smartphone or tablet for a discount.
On the Rio Terà Sant'Andrea, alongside the People Mover station just off the Piazzale Roma, where Portabagagli da Kuddus is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
For current rates and hours of the deposito bagagli offices at Piazzale Roma and Marco Polo Airport, see the Cooperativa Trasbagagli Venezia's English-language Web site.
3. Introducing a newer option: Luggage lockers.
Self-service "locker shops" are now scattered around central Venice. See Venice Luggage Lockers for listings, with reasons why you might (or might not) find lockers a better bet than conventional luggage storage.
