We are considering renting an apartment for the 3 nights we will be in Rome.
We arrive at Termini at around 9 am but our apartment will not be ready until around 3pm. I emailed the rental agency and they could not tell me one way or the other if I will be able to drop bags off early and will not know until they know if someone is booked the night before us .
I have looked through the numerous threads on leaving luggage at Termini but I want to know is it really worth it for a 1/2 day? How ridiculous are the lines really? I am hearing they are awful but then I hear awful is only 30 minutes. Does anyone know what it's really like on a Tuesday at the end of June? Is it worth it as we will only need it for a few hours (I don't want to spend the entire day at a train station) or should we just book a hotel and not have to deal with it? I'd really rather the apartment, this is my only concern.
