Guide to Bari Centrale Train Station

Bari Centrale can't compete with stations like those in Rome and Milan in terms of passenger traffic, but it’s still one of Italy’s most important train stations, as it is a major connection point in the south. It is also useful to reach destinations oversea from Bari’s large port. Some 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, along 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. The ground floor also houses the Sala Blu, the assistance office for disabled travelers, and also a luggage office. Restrooms are on platform 1 near the luggage storage office. There are a couple of bars and small shops where you can grab a quick bite, snack, or newspaper, all of which are also on the ground floor. There is also a mezzanine and first floor, 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.
