Rome Termini Train Station Guide

Rome's transportation mecca boasts countless amenities and connections for Italy's rail passengers. One special amenity is ItaliaRail's very own VIP station oasis, the ItaliaPass Lounge, at the start of Track 25.

Rome Termini Train Station

Roma Termini is Rome's biggest train station, and one of Europe’s largest as well. There are 29 platforms and daily service to cities all over Italy as well as elsewhere in Europe. The name “Termini” comes from the station's location in Rome. In the ancient city, the Baths of Diocletian (the Latin word for baths is “thermae”) were across the street from where the train station is today.

The entrance hall from Piazza dei Cinquecento is lined with shops and restaurants, along with a large ticket office, travel agents, and currency exchanges booths. There are two locations for the post office, one on either side of the platforms, and the tourist information desk for Rome is located near platform 24 next to all the car rental desks.

There is a Sala Freccia Club across from platforms three and four for travelers with a Gold or Platinum CARTAFRECCIA card or an Executive or AV Salottino ticket. There is a lounge next to platform one for all other ticketholders. The Sala Blu, Trenitalia's office of assistance for disabled travelers, is next to platform one. An NTV office for Italo passengers, called Casa Italo, is on the platform level of the station too.

The floor below the platform level contains even more shops, including a grocery store. This is also where you'll find the KiPoint left luggage facility, plus two spas. On the upper level, there are still more shops and restaurants. Restrooms are only on the underground level.

You can catch the Metro at Termini, both the Red and Blue lines serve the train station and are accessed via the lower level. Piazza dei Cinquecento is a major hub for bus lines in Rome.
