Regardless of whether you are preparing for the trip thoroughly, or prefer spontaneous decisions, this article will help you make the trip as comfortable and easy as possible.
Early hotel or apartment check-out, late check-in, hours between flights — any free time before leaving the city can be spent in an interesting and useful way if your hands are free of baggage, if you have no worries about its safety.
That is why every year increases the number of companies providing services in the field of luggage storage near transport interchanges and city sights all over the world, for a small fee, which allows the traveler to facilitate movement and gain extra impressions and positive emotions. This service is especially useful for transit or business travelers, willing to see at least something different than a terminal with a standard set of souvenir shops and fast foods. So, if there are several hours before the flight and the desire to see something new – this article is for you: here we will tell you where and under what conditions you can leave your luggage for storage, so that you can easily spend the rest of your time in the city with interest.
Today we will tell you about luggage storage in Venice. This open air city-museum is famous not only for palaces and canals, temples and galleries. It is also famous for paving stones, bridges, staircases, staircase bridges and cobbled bridges, turning heaven for the eyes into a hell for the hands, if you carry luggage. What is spiritual food for a light walker — that is the death of wheels for a tourist with a suitcase.
Therefore, the first advice to the guest of Venice is to plan the logistics in advance, if you have at least one such suitcase. Since not everyone can afford a taxi boat or a service that globally solves the issue of moving baggage by picking it up from the hotel and delivering directly to the station or to the airport (below we’ll write more about it), it is advisable to book the hotel close to vaporetto station — instead of buses around the city on the water ply ships. If, however, you still have to walk away from the hotel — sometimes this is simply inevitable — then we strongly recommend early leaving, since the bridges and paving stones will enlarge your journey and reduce lifespan of your luggage.
The second advice, arising from the first — if you checked out of the hotel / hostel / apartment, and there is still time before the flight, it is better to first deposit the luggage in a convenient place near the transport hub with direct access to the airport or train station without any changes, and only then go to a walk, instead of leaving the luggage at the hotel (which is not always allowed), because later on you will have to return for it, and it will be difficult to accurately calculate the time due to the above mentioned reason.
We now turn to the description of the services of luggage storage. There are several of them in Venice, and they differ by the possibility or impossibility of online booking and payment, cost per volume of baggage, the deposit duration, work schedules, Wi-Fi and outlets availability, and, of course, the location.
Therefore, the third tip: choose a storage room in advance based on your routes and priorities, because the one that is cheaper can hold fewer luggages, and the one that is in the desired location, may not work at the right time. In our opinion, it is always better to have one that is closer at the same time to the main sights and to the transport hub, but, of course, it`s up to you.
