Not a question really... a tip on luggage drop off in Matera

Went to Matera for a day trip. We though we would have to carry our hand luggage all day since I had read that there is a drop off in the train station to only find at my disappointment that it did not exist. However, once there we went to Idris Viaggi... very close to the train station just to try our luck... and to our surprise they had a luggage drop off and it only costs Euro 2 per bag!! The only thing one must plan is time since they open between 9pm - 1pm and then from 4pm - 6pm.

Hi Janice,

We are going to Matera in June and I was wondering about a luggage drop off. What is the place that you mention, Idris Viaggi? Is it a travel agency?

Thanks very much!

Best wishes,

Vince

Yes it is a travel agent very close to the train station. Here is a picture of how the place looks and location:

Enjoy! Matera is great but with luggage I think I would have not coped with all the steps.

Janice,

Thanks very much! I agree, the first thing I do when I get to a city is find a place to leave the luggage!

Best wishes,

Hi, I plans to visit Matera in one-day trip. I really want to take the early train to Matera(7am).According to your shared information, the service point don't open in the morning. In that case, is there any other luggage drop off in Matera you may also know?
