The primary train station in Naples is called, appropriately, Napoli Centrale. Built in 1950s-1960s, it opens onto the huge historic Piazza Garibaldi.
There are 25 tracks at Naples' Centrale station, serving about 137,000 people per day with daily service to cities all over Italy. Centrale is also connected to an underground station called Napoli Piazza Garibaldi, which is served by Naples' Metro Line 2 and the Circumvesuviana trains that connect Naples with Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and other towns in the region.
On the platform level of the station, there are shops and restaurants, as well as a ticket office, tourist information office, and currency exchange. The KiPoint left luggage facility is in one corner, not far from track two, which is also near where the restrooms are located. Additional restrooms are located on the underground level, as are more shops, restaurants, and access to the Metro and Circumvesuviana.
A Sala Freccia Club, for travelers with a Gold or Platinum CARTAFRECCIA card or an Executive or AV Salottino ticket, is on the upper level level, and the Sala Blu, for passengers with disabilities who need special assistance, is on the platform level. An NTV office for Italo passengers—called Casa Italo—is on the platform level of the station, too.
Many city buses stop in Piazza Garibaldi in front of the station, and there is always a long taxi queue awaiting travelers just outside the front doors.
