If you arrive in Venice with a tour group, as many visitors do, it's likely that the Cooperativa Trasbagagli will be responsible for hauling your luggage from the bus or train station to your hotel. The cooperative, which has been operating since 1946, also runs the baggage storage or left luggage offices at Venice's Piazzale Roma and at Venice Marco Polo Airport.
The Cooperativa's operations hub is at the Pizzale Roma, which is the last stop for buses, taxis, and other motor vehicles arriving in Venice. Cheryl took these photos of a Trasbagagli crew loading suitcases into a cargo boat:
