Every minute in Rome is precious! That’s why you should drop off your bags at one of the luggage storage facilities in Trastevere (listed in this post) and enjoy this lovely neighborhood hands-free.
Why should you store your luggage in the Trastevere neighborhood?
Trastevere is one of the most charming areas of Rome and also a place with lots of accommodation, such as Airbnbs, hotels, hostels, traditional b&bs and so on.
Every day many visitors experience the luggage dilemma, especially after checking out of the accommodation. We are sure that it has happened to you as well.
How many times have you found yourself on your last day of vacation with lots of suitcases to drag? Surely you had to stop and wait somewhere before your departure. Also, how many times have you arrived early and had to wait many hours before you could check-in? Situations like these limited you from making full advantage of your free time.
Walking through the streets of Rome, especially on cobblestones, is very uncomfortable and Trastevere is full of alleys crowded with people. Moreover, luggage is not allowed in the main attractions and museums. Without annoying bags, you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest.
For these and many other reasons, you may need a safe place where to leave them. Fortunately, there are many luggage storage services in Trastevere. Keep reading and find out the list of the most convenient ones.
What kind of storage facilities are available in Trastevere?

Here’s a list of places where you can leave your bags for a few hours or even several days.

- Large (bulky bags): first 4 hours €10; After 4 hours €1,5/h;
- Small (handbags): 5 € per day.
Before booking a locker, be aware that they aren’t like a strongbox, so don’t leave your valuables there.
Luggage storage facilities at local stores
Rather than relying on too expensive lockers, you can drop off your suitcase in a wide range of restaurants, shops, or hotels in the city. These services are similar to Airbnb but they are used to store bags.
The largest worldwide luggage storage network is called Radical Storage. It provides more than 100 storage locations (called Angels) in Rome. You can book a Radical place in no time by using the website or the app.
Radical Storage offers the most affordable rate: €5 per day/per bag – no matter how large or heavy (strollers, sports gears and other large items are accepted). Furthermore, each bag is covered by a guarantee.
LuggageHero is another company operating following the same concept. Its daily rate is €8 per bag, while the hourly rate is €1 plus €2 basic fee.
So if you plan to leave your luggage for half a day with LuggageHero, the price will be much higher than €5/bag.
