Top ways to experience Stazione Roma Termini
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

    Functional trainstation with amenities
    Huge station with many connections, including a direct connection to the airport. The first floor is dedicated to eating and drinks, the ground floor has the platforms and shops and the basement has a row of shops for all kinds of necessities. The station also has a connection with metro lines A and B and a large bus station. Using the trains seems easy, we only used the Leonardo Express to the airport. It is a clean station despite the crowds, with perhaps not the most beautiful appearance due to its enormous size. In the area you will unfortunately find many bums and junkies in addition to hotels, shops and tourist shops, which makes walking in the evening less pleasant when you walk away from the main entrance towards the southeast. Overall for its purpose the station works great.

    Nice station
    This is a good major city train station. Lots of shops and cafes, very clean. It is busy and chaotic near the platform entrances as everyone is waiting to see where their train is, but if you're assertive you can make it.

    Go early and watch and feel the magnitude of theirs place. Go grab a coffee at the Mercato
    The improvements over the years has helped the stations provide better service to it international visitors. Mind you my advise is to go to the station earlier to get a vibe of the electricity generated by its sheer function. Don’t be afraid to ask questions there ante plenty of service clerks to assist.

    Train Station
    A huge train station with all the amenities needed to spend your time as you wait for the next train. They have a food/lounge where you can eat from different restaurants or bars. If this does not please you then you can go shopping if you like; they have plenty of shops to buy the last minute purchase. If you just want to wait for your next train on the platform, you can. They have plenty of digital displays to advise you about which platform you should be on.

    ROMA TERMINI
    For 1st time visitors to Rome, the "Roma Termini" is the main bus and train station in the city. One of the interesting things about this area is that there are probably 100 hotels, of varying quality, within a 10 minute walk of the station. I like this because I'm cheap and don't care to spend money on cabs, if I can help it! My wife will agree with that. LOL. Having a hotel near the station is also convenient if you plan to take a train to Florence, Venice or elsewhere. There are also some pretty good sandwich shops at the station that are also fairly reasonable. And, if you're coming from the airport, the train is the most economical (and fastest) way to get to the city. One word of warning: If you take a train to another destination, try to sit near a door and get ready to get off before the train stops!. My friend and I got to Florence and with the people entering the train and us trying to leave, the door closed before my friend was able to get off! Next stop was Bologna, 30 miles away - and we had no cell phone coverage! We caught up to each other at the Florence train stain some hours later, but I'll never let that happen again.

    A great transport hub
    The area outside can be quite sketchy, especially at night but in terms of the offerings, this is a great station. Such a massive variety of food and shops to entertain you as you wait for your train. Almost thirty train platforms with links to cities and towns up and down the country. You only need to get there about 15-20mins before your scheduled departure time. It has great metro links too.

    Busy train station with lots of options
    Termini is a very busy station accommodating huge number of trains and passengers daily. It was easy to access, and my hotel was just a few blocks away. My daily subway commutes were easy to and from my destinations within Rome and there are many dining options around for quick bites. At the end of my stay, I took a bus located at the train station back to the airport for 8 euros.

    Not Just a Commuting Hub
    This station is the biggest in Rome. It contains trains railways and several metro lines too. You can go anywhere from there. But it's not just a commuting hub. This place has several shopping stores from all kinds also a lot of food providers (restaurants, bakeries, cafes, bars and snacks etc...). You can easily spend more than 3 hours at this spot.

    We managed to get through the station without any problems
    My wife and I rode the train into Rome from the station near the cruise ship terminal. We didn’t have too good of directions on exiting the terminal to the Uber pick up spot but we were able to find our way and get an Uber. It can be hectic like a lot of things in Italy, but we managed.

    Malfunctioning ticket machines a nightmare
    While the station is modern and reasonably well kept, buying a ticket is a major endeavour. I say so as a traveller whose Italian is reasonably good. No doubt it is even worse if you do not speak Italian. The core problem is that many of the ticket machines do not work. There are therefore long queues at busy times in front of the machines that are working. Worse still, half the machines only issue tickets for long distance journeys, but that is not apparent to users, since there is nothing on screen (whether in Italian or English) to tell you so. It took me over twenty minutes to buy a ticket to Fiumicino airport. The moral of this story is buy a return on arrival at Fiumicino (where the ticket machines all work and the booking office is staffed) or anywhere else but Termini. Not a good experience at all.

With 32 platforms, the Rome Termini Station is Italy's largest and busiest railway station. Although the site has been used as a railway station since the 19th century, the current building, as characterized by the post-World War 2 modernist architectural style, was inaugurated in 1950. As the central transportation hub of Rome, the station has convenient connections to other major attractions in the city via the Metro lines and other cities in Italy and Europe, which is definitely a boon to budget-conscious tourists staying in one of the many affordable hotels near the station. The station was dedicated to Pope John Paul II in 2006, with the statue of the Pope standing imposingly in front of the station to symbolize the tribute.

I'm really disappointed because the staff here won't want to help you when you don't speak Italian, they're very rude and just stand around talking to each other? They don't really work. They should be ashamed because they have made the Italians look bad to international tourists. Lazy and unfriendly people.

This is a huge station which was renewed years ago, losing free areas, however it is possibile to pass time at bars or shopping, toilets are generally clean if not too crowded. As all stations It Is necessary to check your bags and luggage, but shops are always open also during bano holidays. Buses, train and taxis are available as in all big cities' stations in Italy.

Roma Termini is Rome's and Europe’s largest train station and was built in 1864 – 1867 and remodelled in 1948-1951 and 2000.

There are 29 platforms and daily service to cities all over Italy and Europe and is a very busy station.

I had heard that the area around the station was unsafe however I did not feel unsafe at any time.

The station is lined with shops and restaurants, along with a large ticket office, travel agents, and currency exchanges booths.

The process of buying train tickets from the Termini Station to getting on the train platform to get to the FCO airport in Rome.

The process of buying the ticket using credit card at the ticketing machine was quite straight forward because of the user-friendly on-screen menu that was in English. One confusion arose during the payment stage. I was not sure if I should tap or slot the card in or on the attached card reader respectively. So I did both, and the latter method worked.

To gain access the train platform, I knew that I was required me to scan the QR code (printed on the ticket) at the barricades. However, I also knew that I had to validate the ticket before going through the barricades, but where and how? Then, I noticed 2 little dark green devices each attached to a waist-high post in a rather obscure location between the ticketing machine and the barricade. Later, I discovered that those were the devices to validate the train ticket. All I have to do is to slot the ticket into the device, and it would print a short statement on the ticket that it has been validated (in Italian of course). How would a typical tourist know all that I wonder.

Day trip from Florence to Rome. Arrival and departure from Rome Termini was straight forward. For the departure you just have to look up at the big board until a platform number is listed, then off through security with your ticket and onto the train - easy!

Took a while to figure out how to easily get from the Metro levels to the train levels. We finally discovered that the fastest and most efficient route was to fine a staircase at the Metro level with a downward escalator and a “forbidden entry” sign on the stairs portion and to simply go up the forbidden staircase. It puts you exactly where you need to be! In terms of the Metro, know that there are only two lines, the A and the B and there will be basically two one-way tracks: one going East and west (line A) and one going north and south (B line). Watch the maps on the walls and if the destination you want is grayed out on the map, you need to get to the opposite platform by going either up and over or down and under. Lines are identified by their terminal stations.
