Frecciarosa with baggage

We plan to take the Frecciarosa train from Rome to Venice in October but have a lot of luggage (2 suitcases, 2 carry-ons and two handbags). Can these be checked or do we have to lug them onto the train? Is there space for so much luggage, and is it safe if it is out of sight (by the entrance)?

How many persons are you?

There is no checked luggage on trains. You carry it yourself. If it’s more than you can comfortably carry you have to much luggage...

There is no checked baggage on European trains. You should only carry as much as you can handle yourself, including up the steps into the train.

Frecciarossas have luggage space on overhead racks (should take carry-on size), between the seat backs (smaller suitcases) and on racks at the end of the cars

While luggage is normally entirely safe when out of sight, there is a very very low risk of theft while the train is standing in train stations. Some people like to keep an eye on their baggage at those times. Others never even think about it.

FYI, "Frecciarosa" with only 1 "s" changes this from a red to a pink arrow!

As you are travelling from Rome to Venice, you COULD use Trenitalia's door-to-door luggage service for your larger bags: trenitalia.com/tcom-en/Services/Luggage-tran… - of course you'll need to keep at least overnight stuff in smaller bags as they undertake to collect this (e.g. from your hotel) on one day and deliver it by the end of the next.

" a lot of luggage (2 suitcases, 2 carry-ons and two handbags "

That sounds too much luggage for travelling on a train, provided you can handle each of your suitcases yourself (ie one person one suitcase), then you can convert your carry on into a backpack, and stuff the handbag inside. That way, you go up the steps into the train with only ONE suitcase
