Baggage on train question...

by dizzneyfan

Where does our luggage go when we board a train? Can we keep it with us?

Re: Baggage on train question...

by mariev

Your luggage goes either in a rack over your head or - if too big- on larger racks at both ends of the car.
You handle it yourself.

Checked baggage service is virtualy unseen on European trains (they were loading bikes into cargo on the Eurostar.) Hence you carry it on and off. There are generally luggage racks at one or both ends of the cars and overhead racks over all of the seats. Half of the seats in most cars face in each direction, there is baggage space between the seat backs where the seats change direction. I have seen people who were worried about baggage security use a short cable and lock to lock their bags to the racks at the end of the car. It is nice to arrive at your destination and not have to wait for your bags to be unloaded.

Enjoy!

Re: Baggage on train question...

I asked a somewhat similar question recently about bag security, and David is right -- buy a thin-cable-and-lock device that will secure your bag/s when in that luggage section area at the end of each car, where you may not be visually in contact with it at all times. This way, you can also move about the train, use the loo, go to the restaurant, etc., without worrying that at each stop someone else might off load your big bag. I'd still take my carry-on (with valuables) with me whenever I move around on the train.

I always keep all my luggage with me. When I have a lot, I use the overhead rack for the bigger bags and put the smaller bag(s) under the seat and at my feet.

And you will be much happier if you pack light and in smaller suitcases that you can actually lift, especially over your head so that you can get them on the racks.

This is the lock I use and I think Marianne is going to use it too

It is very light weight - and if you are not in contact with your luggage remember that you also need to lock your suitcase, not just cable it to the rack

Re: Baggage on train question...

by dizzneyfan

All of you are wonderful! Thank you so much for your responses! You have no idea how much help you have been. I will be ordering that cable tonight. Great tips!

Re: Baggage on train question...

by Marianne2

Yes, Kathy -- that's the lock, and it was your good advice -- I bought one, thanks! And yes, lock all other compartments of your bag if you have to leave it unattended (my roll-on has several lockable compartments, all locked). Ideally, if you can pack light, you could use the overhead bins, but my mixture of business/leisure clothes isn't "Rick Steves light." You may be luckier on your trip, packing with just leisure clothes.

Re: Baggage on train question...

All good suggestions posted above, however if you have the chance, sit near the front of the car, and put your luggage in the luggage compartment in the front of the car also, that way you can at least keep an eye on your bigger pieces, better to have it in front of you than behind you.

Travel Tips for Rome

Acceptable littering.

by unravelau

In Australia I often feel like I am being watched like a hawk......e.g. last time in Sydney I was looking at the train timetable when out of nowhere came a policewoman brushing past me on a mission of mercy? No she just saw a young man drop a lolly wrapper and motioned to him to pick it up quick smart. He did, and walked to the bin to be rid of the offensive item............peace reigned again.

It is different in Rome...........it must be that the people get so carried away with what they are looking at that they forget to take their rubbish with them................ah well.

Bomarzo, the monsters park

by janchan

The 'monsters park' of Bomarzo... about 100 km north-west of Rome. It was designed by Vicino Orsini in 1562. An enchanting place for sure.

Get off Highway A1; or travel by train to Attigliano and then take a local bus.

Map Your Journey

by deebum25

We did a lot of walking around Rome to see the various sights and restaurants that I had gotten from websites like this one! I found it invaluable to have a map from our hotel especially to restaurants that we wanted to visit. I used mapquest.com and they have a version for Europe as well. We never got lost once!

Local Italian Restaurant

by Mikebb about Ristorante La Tavernetta

This is another family run Italian restaurant very close to our hotel accommodation and also close to metro station Barberini. The menu had a wide choice but we chose traditional pasta meals followed by home made sweets. The meal was most enjoyable and price was very reasonable.The restaurant decor was nice.
This restaurant is located next door to the Ristorante La Fontenalla for which I have already written a tip.

Piazza Navona

by cpiers47

We were surprised to find this huge, open piazza after wandering through the city. We were following a guide (gasp) and rounded a corner to see three gorgeous fountains and a piazza full of people.

We came beack to Piazza Navona late that night when the South Americans selling bracelets and the magicians were gone. From the sounds around us, we were the only Americans and we enjoyed a half hour of quiet at the largest fountain - the one that shows the four rivers. Almost empty and wiith the lights on, the Piazza was magical.
