    Venice to Salzburg…..
    We arrive at San Basilio terminal early in the morning and want to spend 5 hours in the main tourist area of Venice (San Marco). Where can My Day Trip driver pick us up in Venice for a journey up to Salzburg mid afternoon that same day? And where should we store our luggage for 5 hours in Venice?

      Hi Don,
      A Daytrip driver can pick you up from “Piazzale Roma” and drive you to Salzburg. You can go ahead and book your trip online through the following link: https://mydaytrip.com/landing/venice-to-salzburg and our customer support team will be available to support you when needed. As for storing your luggage, there should be several places around the city including close to Piazzale Roma. We advice you to do a quick Google search and choose what better fits you.
