Guide to Bari Centrale Train Station

Guide to Bari Centrale Train Station

The main train station in the Puglia capital of Bari is Bari Centrale. The original station building was built in 1864 and had only three tracks. Expansions at different points in the 20th century led to the Bari Centrale of today, with 20 platforms.

Bari Centrale doesn’t compare with stations like those in Rome and Milan for passenger traffic, but it’s still one of Italy’s most important train stations as a major connection point in the south - not to mention points overseas from Bari’s large port. 38,000 people and 300 trains per day travel through Bari Centrale.

 

Trains from Bari connect to major cities throughout Italy, including high-speed Frecciargento and Frecciabianca service to places such as Rome, Milan, Bologna, and Venice. Other Trenitalia trains like InterCity and Regionale trains serve smaller cities and towns throughout southern Italy.

 

The ticket offices are located on the ground level of the station with all of the tracks. The ground floor is also where you’ll find the Freccia Club (for anyone with a Gold or Platinum CARTAFRECCIA card or an Executive or AV Salottino ticket), Sala Blu (the assistance office for disabled travelers), and left luggage office. Restrooms are on platform 1 near the luggage storage office. There are a couple bars and small shops where you can pick up a quick bite, snack, or newspaper, all of which are also on the ground floor. There is a mezzanine and first floor, too, though these are primarily offices and not typically needed by passengers.

 

Bari’s Metro network has a stop in Bari Centrale, with service from all of the Metro lines. There are also buses that stop in Piazza Aldo Moro, including city buses serving Bari and regional buses for those who need to reach other parts of Puglia like Brindisi, Taranto, Alberobello, and more.
