We are planning to walk the via Francigena reaching Rome in mid November. Is there anywhere where we can send a small package with some clothes to be held for us - something similar to the luggage arrangement at Ivar’s address in Santiago. The package will need to be held for us for about 2 or 3 months. Thanks for your advice.

Hi
This question pops up on the forum here, the VF forum and also on the VF Facebook Groups.
Unfortuntely as far as I know there is no easy answer to this. There is no equivalent to Ivar in Rome. There are commercial businesses like https://bags-free.com/ but they are pricey for that long. You could try to make arrangements with a hotel in Rome but again given the long time frame it is not likely in most cases. Poste restante is not feasible for that sort of time period - I think for parcels in Italy it is only 2 weeks.
Maybe someone else has more ideas...

2-3 months? Unless you know somebody that lives in Rome, not likely ...

PS Edited to add: I might be a long shot, but have you asked your embassy in Rome?

Too many and too often!
Would it be possible to leave your parcel with a friend somewhere in the EU (to avoid customs problems) and have them send it to an address in Rome closer to your arrival date? Might be a cheaper solution.

If it is a church from your homeland in Rome they might help.

if it’s just a small package of clothes. Would be easier to buy a few new pieces when you arrive in or near Rome.

I very much counsel against relying on the Italian postal service.

I have sent and left packages with convent where I know a Sister. They run a hostel in Rome. If you book a room with them they may be willing to hold a box. PM me for more details.

Thanks. Will PM if we decide to follow up on this option. For the moment most seem to be suggesting not sending stuff ahead,
