lockers in Lucca train station

Thinking of leaving the rental car in Siena, taking the train to Monterosso via Viareggio. Stopping in Lucca for a couple of hours. \

Is there a place to store luggare for a couple of hours in the Lucca train station?

My mind is starting to go round in circles, I have messed with itinerary for so long. aughhh

thnx

There should be no lockers as such in any railway station in Europe - they are too useful to bombers. However, larger stations have left-baggage offices. Check when they close at night. A check on http://www.ferroviedellostato.it suggests there is no such deposit in Lucca main station. You might want to confirm that.

I can't quite remember if the station has a baggage check here, but there is a TI (tourist information point) right near the train station that has one. It's right on Piazza Curtatone (exiting the train station, cross the square ahead and go to your right and it is right there), and charges 1.50 euro/day per bag. It should be open from 10AM to 6PM daily.

Enjoy Lucca! Be sure to rent a bike and bike around the perimeter of town if you have time!

Richard,
There are lots of train stations throughout Europe that have lockers: Switzerland, Belgium, Poland, Sweden, Norway, Finland -just off the top of my head.

Stuart, I could be wrong, but I think it's the TI on the more distant Piazza Verdi that offers baggage storage.

You could be right Doug. But I thought there were 3 TIs overall, and two of which, the two we've mentioned, have a baggage check. Not sure where I could double check though...

That's how I confirmed the luggage check in the Piazza Verdi. Couldn't find any confirmation for the one closer to the train station. The Piazza Verde TI is pretty big and well staffed. I know the third, on a road coming into town, doesn't - it's about the size of a gas station and is minimally staff.

I have decided to make Lucca a side trip from Siena. That way I won't have to worry about storing baggage for the time we are there.

But, thanks everyone for your input
