We are going to be coming to Pisa from London with luggage that we would like to leave at the train station for two weeks whilst we explore Tuscany in September 2013. Is there a facility at the Pisa Train Station to leave a suitcase safely. We would pick it up when we arrive back two weeks later at the train station. Would you know roughly how much it would cost to leave one bag (suitcase medium size) for 14 days?
They have a place to leave your luggage. We left ours for a few hours. You would need to find out if there is some sort of time limit and the cost. You should look at their website. If you can't find your answer you could email or call them.
Thank you Andrea. You have been a great help.
On my trip to Italy in 2009 I checked luggage in several stations including Pisa, each time for several hours. Every one had an attendant and different rates. The charge was per item, sometimes a flat fee for up to x amount of time, sometimes by the hour. I didn't pay any attention to whether there were long-term rates. I think the most I paid was about €4-5 per piece for a day.
I wouldn't be surprised to find out that you cannot leave bags overnight at a train station. I've searched the Trenitalia site but can't find anything definitive one way or another. I do see that at least at Roma Termini here's what they charge: Charges 5,00 € the first 5 hours 0,70 € /hour from 6th to 12th hour
0,30 € /hour from 13th hour on Their hours are 6 a.m. to 11 pm. There's no mention of leaving bags overnight. If you find out something definitive, do come back here and report.
Thanks Michael, Looks like it is going to be more difficult to try and find out.
Maybe we will have to adjust our thoughts on packing!!
You should always try to pack less, if there's any way possible. Another option would be to ask your Pisa hotel if they could hang onto a bag for you for a couple of weeks.
Good suggestion on both counts Michael. First of all we start our journey in England where the weather is likely to be cold and then on to Tuscany where the weather is very warm, hence a little extra luggage. Our aim is to travel as light as is possible. Your idea of leaving a bag at an hotel in Pisa (where we will return to to spend the night en route onwards), is a good one which we are working
on at the moment. Many thanks.
