          Yes they can store your luggage, for a taxi I woul guess it's about 15 minutes but if you do not have much baggage you can walk it in the same time, hope it helps
          Hi all, Could anyone tell me how much this hotel costs usually? Particularly anyone who has travelled in June? We are starting to plan & book accommodation for our travels around Italy next year (June 2017) and we've picked this hotel because it is central & has a roof terrace but they're quoting us €900 a night! I was hoping to pay more around €90 as that is what rooms are costing this July/August.
