Luggage Storage Near the Acropolis

No matter where you go in Athens, chances are you’ll have a good view of the Acropolis. Situated atop a rugged hilltop, the Acropolis Archeological Site is composed of some of the Western world’s most iconic architectural achievements dating back at least to the 5th century BC. It’s here visitors will find the heavily photographed Parthenon, which initially served as the central house of worship for the city’s patron Olympian Athena. Just a few other significant structures you’ll encounter on a tour of the Acropolis include the Erechtheion, the Theatre of Dionysus, and the Temple of Athena Nike.

After you’re done exploring the Acropolis, please be sure to visit the stunning Acropolis Museum nearby. Created in 2003, this ultra-modern museum houses thousands of artifacts that help tell the fascinating story of the Acropolis. Definitely don’t leave the museum without seeing the incredible Parthenon Gallery on the third floor.

Please keep in mind the Acropolis has a strict no-bag policy. Bounce strongly encourages you to look into our bag storage in Athens destinations before planning your trip to this popular tourist attraction. Not only will you not have to worry about passing through security, you will also have a more comfortable trip around these architectural masterpieces.

Luggage Storage Near the National Archeological Museum of Athens

If you only have time to visit one of Athens’s many magnificent museums, then prioritize a stop at the city’s National Archeological Museum. Located about a 15-minute drive north of the Parthenon, the National Archeological Museum boasts one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of artifacts from the Ancient World. Of the thousands of treasures housed inside this massive museum, a few highlights include the golden Mask of Agamemnon, frescoes from Santorini, Egyptian funerary wear, and a numerous well-preserved bronze sculptures. It’s recommended you spend at least a few hours exploring the National Archeological Museum to fully appreciate its incredible array of items.

It’s best to leave all of your bags with a safe Bounce-approved storage destination before visiting the National Archeological Museum. All of Bounce’s luggage storage locations have been thoroughly screened for safety, so there’s no need to fear working with our partners. In fact, we’re so confident in the safety of our vendors that we offer $5,000 in insurance to every one of our customers.

Luggage Storage Near Athens Airport

Anyone flying into the Greek capital will have to make a stop at Athens International Airport (IATA: ATH). Roughly a 30-minute drive from the city’s center, ATH is the closest airport to Athens and the top airport in all of Greece. Current stats suggest about 24 million people pass through ATH every year, making it one of Europe’s busier airports. As Greece’s premier airport, ATH also serves as a hub for most Greek-based airlines like Aegean Airlines and Olympic Air as well as the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair.

Yes, you could store your luggage at ATH, but that will cost you about 3.5 Euros per bag every six hours. By contrast, for $5.90 you could leave your luggage at one of Bounce’s storage destinations all day. Plus, Bounce has loads of different storage destinations spread throughout Athens to choose from.

Luggage Storage Near Pláka

Situated at the foot of the majestic Acropolis, Pláka has quickly become one of the most touristy districts in all of Athens. Beloved for its stately 19th century homes, narrow streets, and numerous cafés & shops, Pláka is the place to be if you’re looking for a stroll through “Old Athens.” Indeed, you might even think you’re on a Greek island like Mykonos as you walk past some of Pláka’s whitewashed buildings. Besides shopping and dining, a few important historical draws to visit in Pláka include the Museum of Modern Greek Culture, the Jewish Museum of Greece, and the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates.

Please keep in mind all of Bounce’s bag storage in Athens destinations accept shopping bags. So, whether you’re shopping in Pláka or somewhere else in Athens, you can safely drop off your purchases at one of our Bounce-approved hotels or stores.

Luggage Storage Near the Temple of Olympian Zeus

Although the Temple of Olympian Zeus might not be as famous as the Parthenon, it’s certainly worth a visit on your Athenian journey. Once you step on this temple’s grounds, you will get a sense of the incredible scale of this project. Believe it or not, it took roughly 600 years to complete this temple to the thunder-wielding god. When it was completed, many believed the Temple to Zeus was the largest of its kind with its roughly 100 imposing columns. Unfortunately, the temple was severely damaged after the collapse of the Roman Empire, so there are only about 16 original pillars now standing. Still, it’s a pretty awesome experience to walk on the former temple’s grounds and imagine all of the history in the area.

Let’s be honest, nobody wants travel pics with loads of luggage. Consider working with one of Bounce’s many partners around the Temple of Olympian Zeus before your visit. We promise to take good care of your bags as you’re snapping your special selfies.

Luggage Storage Near Ancient Agora of Athens

The best way to get a sense of what everyday life was like for Ancient Athenians is to visit the Agora of Athens. Back in ancient times this “public space” would’ve been the lively center of Athenian for shopping, meeting friends, and debating the hottest topics of the day. You could learn even more about the specific history of the Ancient Agora by taking a look in the Stoa of Attalus museum nearby. Also, be sure not to leave the Ancient Agora without touring the significant religious sites such as the Church of the Holy Apostles, the Temple of Hephaestus, and the nearby Areopagus rock.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
