Baggage Storage at Venezia S Lucia train station

by ItsMe3

There will be 4 of us traveling to Italy this summer. We would like to spend time in Venice after we check out from our hotel, but do not want to carry our luggage around with us. I have read that there are storage areas at the Venezia S Lucia train station. How big are these storage areas? Are they big enough to store a few large pieces of luggage? Or are they just big enough for backpacks and carry-on sized bags?

S Lucia has a left luggage facility (rather than lockers) with a person in charge of it and, I assume, a massive storage area behind somewhere.

I doubt that you will have any problems leaving your particular bags.

For details go to

www.grandistazioni.it

Click on the English link (top of page) then on Venezia S Lucia, then on 'station services' on the left-hand menu, then 'left luggage' on the right.

Basically:

Open 7/7 days from 06.00 - 24.00

4,00 € the first 5 hours (per item, I assume)
0,60 € /hour from 6th to 12th hour
0,20 € /hour from 13th hour on

As above poster says, there is a left luggage area. What I noticed though was that there was a very long line to drop bags off and I imagine also pick them up and the line appeared to be moving slowly. I was there in late June. Many hotels will let you leave bags with them and pick them up later in the day. You might want to check this out as well.

I always do that too, and have never had any problems anywhere in Europe (though cannot speak about the UK, as I always have my car).

Travel Tips for Venice

Smelly Venice...

by sissah

When you go to Venice, if you have the choice, try to go in an off season. Fall or early Spring is best. If you go in the midst of the summer, Venice has a bit of a urine smell to it, that in some places can be pretty overwhelming. We went in February, and while it was cold, hot wine and cappuchinos and a couple shots of whiskey warmed us up. I went again in the summer, and it smelt, well, not good.

Dogana di Mare or Sea Customs Post

by grandmaR

At the tip of Dorsoduro opposite St. Mark's Square, where the Grand Canal reaches its greatest width (231 feet) is the Customs house (Dogana di Mare). When we were there, this building was covered with scaffolding and the outside of the scaffolding was covered with a white material.

It used to be that cargo ships came first to the Punta della Dogana (Customs Point) to be inspected by customs officials. In the 14th century there was a tower on the point, but in the late 1600s this was replaced by a colonnaded building. It is presumably this building that is being repaired. The current building's tower sticks up above the white wrappings and is is crowned by two Atlases holding up a bronze globe. On top of the globe, the "Fortune" weathervane holds a shield to the wind.

I'm not sure from looking at it whether you can actually visit this site while it is under construction. One way to reach the Dogana di Mare is to take the No. 1 vaporetto to the Salute stop and walk along the promenade.

Or you can ride the gondola ferry from the nearby Campo del Traghetto to the Dorsoduro side of the canal. When you step off the traghetto, walk inland to the first corner, turn left, and continue two short blocks. In his Italian Hours essay on Venice, Henry James describes the Dogana di Mare:

"The charming architectural promontory of the Dogana stretches out the most graceful of arms, balancing in its hand the gilded globe on which revolves the delightful satirical figure of a little weathercock of a woman. This Fortune, this Navigation, or whatever she is called--she surely needs no name--catches the wind in the bit of drapery of which she has divested her rotary bronze loveliness. On the other side of the canal twinkles and glitters the long row of the happy palaces which are mainly expensive hotels. There is a little of everything everywhere, in the bright Venetian air, but to these houses belongs especially the appearance of sitting, across the water, at the receipt of custom, of watching in their hypocritical loveliness for the stranger and victim."

~ Rialto Bridge ~

by Carnation

Venice would not be the same without it's famous Rialto Bridge. A landmark that attracts thousands of tourists because of it's history and architecture. There is always a crowd on there, whether it be tourists or locals alike watching the activity on the Grand Canal from the bridge's balustrades, or just browsing amongst the souveniers. Antonio de Ponte won the commission to rebuild the bridge in stone in 1588.

Bargaining for prices

by jmhenry1123

Most shopkeepers will be happy to adjust prices for you to give you the best deal. However you must be willing to pay in cash. If you plan on paying with credit the deal will probably not go through. It is very expensive for these merchants to accept credit cards so they will want to make it worth their while.

All the same, bargaining is available just have cash on hand and the stores away from the main squares have nicer stuff.

Black T-shirt rather than a white one

by Kikitriky

Local people say that a black shirt would prevent you from the pigeons' secrets. These birds tend to 'disturb' people dressed in white at the San Marco square. I myself was dressed in white to prevent myself from the heat! Our guide pointed me and said 'Beware from the pigeons!' She was dressed in black.
