Guide to Rome Tiburtina Train Station
Rome’s - and Italy’s - busiest train station is Roma Termini, but a city the size of the Italian capital has other big stations, too. The second-biggest is Roma Tiburtina, located to the east of Termini.
Rome’s Tiburtina station has 20 platforms, with service from both regional and high-speed trains. Many of Trenitalia’s high-speed Alta Velocità (AV) trains and Italo trains pass through Tiburtina between Rome’s Termini and Napoli Centrale stations. The 2011 renovations were designed in part to deal with increased passenger traffic, which is estimated to be more than 400,000 daily. Trains pass through Roma Tiburtina from other major cities in Italy and towns elsewhere in the Lazio region.
Ticket offices for both Trenitalia and Italo are on floor two, known as the “Galleria Vetrata.” There are also lounges for both Trenitalia and Italo passengers - the Freccia Club (for travelers with a Gold or Platinum CARTAFRECCIA card or an Executive or AV Salottino ticket) and Casa Italo on the same floor.
Tiburtina has several options for getting food and doing some shopping while you wait for your train, most of which are on floor two. There are restrooms on floor two and the lower floor below ground level. Tiburtina does not have luggage storage.
Rome’s Metro Line B has a Tiburtina stop, and there are several bus lines that stop outside the station. These include both Rome city buses to help you get around in the capital as well as some regional and even long-haul buses.
