Half the price of station lockers and airport lockers

Luggage lockers, also called city lockers, are generally at least twice as expensive on a daily basis as LuggageHero’s luggage storage service. Until relatively recently, travelers could only stow their bags in these luggage lockers, which offer very little flexibility in regard to pricing and location.Today, LuggageHero offers countless stores in various cities to ensure you always have the option of dropping off your luggage in a protected environment. Unlike luggage lockers in stations and airports, LuggageHero also offers both an hourly and daily rate for maximum flexibility. LuggageHero tries to offer safe and cheap luggage storage near you at all times.

Most important stations and places to visit in Athens

Athens Central Train Station is the main railway station of Athens,Greece. It is located in the central quarter of Kolonos. It resulted from the merger of the city’s two main railway terminals, the Larissa Station of the Piraeus–Platy railway line towards central and northern Greece, and of the Peloponnese Station of the Piraeus–Patras railway line linking Athens with the southern Peloponnese peninsula. The station is still colloquially known as Larissa Station or Stathmos Larisis, which is also the name of a Metro station there.

The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historical significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. The word acropolis is from the Greek words akron, which means highest point and polis, which means city. The buildings whose present remains are the site’s most important ones, including the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike, have been there since the 5th century BC.

Plaka District is an area really close to the Acropolis. Plaka is like a village within the city, an island for those who don’t have the time to visit the Greek Islands.It is the oldest section of Athens. Most of the streets have been closed to automobile traffic, though you should still keep an eye on motorcycles or delivery trucks. It is now an area of restaurants, tourist shops, and cafes. Though it is quite commercialized it is still the nicest neighborhood in central Athens. Most of the restaurants are typical tourist places but the quality of food is not bad.

Monastiraki District is one of the oldest neighborhoods of Athens, located at the heart of the city. Monastiraki square is a famous meeting place for Athenians and the area around it offers many things to see and do! Standing in the middle of the square, you can see a blend of historical eras, architecture and cultures, and many roads leading to different directions. It is also one of the popular shopping areas where you can find many second-hand clothes shops and vintage stores.

Mount Lycabettus or Lycabettus Hill (sometimes spelt Lykavitos) , standing 277 meters above sea level,is the highest point of Athens. Although a beautiful walk up via a circular path, it will be a test of endurance and a challenge in summer.A funicular or cliff railway can take you to the top of the hill and proves to be a novelty for younger kids. The downside is it moves inside a closed tunnel, so there is no view on the way up or down.The view from Lycabettus Hill is best enjoyed at sunset whilst waiting for the lights of the Acropolis, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium and Ancient Agora to light on. You will also be reminded that Athens is surrounded by sea with spectacular views across the Aegean.

Locker situation around some main tourist attractions in Athens

Acropolis Museum  – visitors must go through an x-ray baggage control system once they arrive at the museum. To avoid delays, visitors are asked to avoid carrying large bags and luggage in. The cloakroom is located on the ground floor of the museum and you can store small bags, backpacks and coats free of charge

Parthenon – there is no locker around, the only option will be storing a small backpack in Acropolis Museum where you would need to pay for the entrance ticket

Monastiraki District – there are many restaurants and cafes where you can keep your luggage for a fee, or use left luggage at the Monastiraki metro station which costs €8 per day


If you are staying in a hotel you can ask if they can keep your luggage for a few hours because some hotels offer to keep your bags for a few hours before your check-in or after checking out. If your hotel is a bit out of the way from your sightseeing or transportation, we recommend that you consider a luggage storage service that is more conveniently located.
