How many times have you found yourself dealing with the luggage deposit problem while traveling? Me? A hundred times! Say you stay at an apartment nowhere near the closest luggage storage. The apartment check-out is by 10 am and it does not provide deposit service. Your train/flight leaves at 10 pm. So you still have the whole day to “patrol” the wonderful city in which you are. But you have two heavy suitcases. What to do? Well, I just found out that there’s a convenient solution, a luggage storage app called Stasher. Whew!
What is Stasher?
Stasher is a new Smartphone free app. Through it you can search, choose and book a luggage storage, right when and where you need it. No queue!
I personally experienced a long queue to store my suitcase at Milan’s train station facility. So it’s super convenient to find new ways of solving this problem.
Stasher has storages in many Italian cities, including Rome, Naples, Venice and Milan. The deposit can be a hotel, a shop, a restaurant or any safe space for your bags.
How does Stasher work?
After the download you simply have to activate the GPS signal or manually insert the city (or the full address). Then, select the number of bags. Fill out date and time slots, and search. Select the right storage for you. Then you have to LogIn and finalize the reservation. You can pay online with credit card, PayPal or Quick Pay system. Finally, you’ll receive a booking confirmation email to show to the Stash-point. For the record, there’s a flexible refund policy. You can cancel your booking up until the drop-off time under “Bookings” in your Stasher account. When you deposit your bag, you’ll receive a counterpart to pick it up again later.
Here you can see a brief example for Rome:

Luggage storage in Venice
Are you planning to visit Venice for the first time? A romantic gondola ride along the Grand Canal, a visit to the Doge’s Palace and then up on the St Mark’s Bell Tower to admire Venice from above. Or maybe you have already visited the city, and you prefer to see some unusual places. In this case I suggest you visit some amazing but less known museums, such as Fortuny Museum or Palazzo Grimani. The latter is located in the most authentic area of Venice, Castello. I recommend you stroll around there. You won’t be disappointed. And you’ll also find some genuine restaurants for locals. Here the cuisine is mostly fish based. One of the most delicious things to eat are the cicheti, different tiny food bites. My favorites? Crostini con baccalà mantecato (croutons with creamed cod). But where to leave the bag before the check-in at your hotel? Here’s where you can find a convenient luggage store in Venice.
Luggage storage in Milan
Milan is Italy’s fashion capital, the perfect place for shopaholics. It is also a key business center. Being a very lively city, Milan offers all kinds of shops and food spots. But you can also visit some art highlights: The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci and the Cathedral, for example. If you’re passionate about opera, do not miss La Scala Theater Museum. Contemporary architecture lover? You must not miss the futuristic City Life district, with the three skyscrapers designed by Arata Isozaki, Daniel Libeskind and Zaha Hadid. Plus the area of Piazza Gae Aulenti, with the Unicredit Tower, the tallest skyscraper of Italy, the Vertical Forest and the Library of the Trees. In need of a place where to stash your bags? Here you can find a luggage store in Milan.
Luggage storage in Rome
Italy’s capital is one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world. It hosts all kind of treasures: from the ruins of the ancient Romans (for example the Colosseum, the Baths of Caracalla and the Roman Forum), to the medieval areas such as the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, up to the Renaissance’s culmination of art and beauty thanks to the works of Bramante, Raphael and Michelangelo. The Sistine Chapel is unmissable. Rome is also famous for the copious and tasty cuisine: do not miss one of the classic pasta dishes: carbonara, gricia, amatriciana, or cacio e pepe. And don’t forget the street food: Roman pizza, supplì stuffed with mozzarella and tomato or a sweet maritozzo filled with whipped cream. If you want to extend your stay after your check-out, you can find a luggage storage in Rome here.
Luggage storage in Naples
Naples is the city of the sun, the sea and Vesuvius. It also preserves a truly unique artistic and cultural heritage. The unmissable attractions of the city center are the Archaeological Museum, Capodimonte Museum, the Monastery of Santa Chiara with its rich ceramic decoration, and the Veiled Christ in the Chapel of San Severo, an absolute masterpiece of sculpture. Not far from the city center, you can visit the excavations of Pompei and Herculaneum, among the most important archeological sites in the world. As for the local gastronomy, it is one of the tastiest in Italy. The queen is of course the pizza. But you will also absolutely have to taste the spaghetti with seafood, the cuoppo, a paper package full of fried delights. The desserts are delicious: babà, sfogliatelle, pastiera and caprese cake. Do you need to stash your bags? Here’s the list of luggage stores in Naples.
In conclusion, Stasher is a free, easy and convenient app for your luggage storage problems. Besides, it is not only useful for suitcases. But also in case you have done too much shopping already and you need a place where to leave the shoppers and simply… go shopping again! 😉
