Futuristic-looking Roma Termini is the Italian capital’s main train station, and it’s named after the central area of the cosmopolitan capital in which it’s located. This station is packed with handy services, shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Opened in 1860, it has grown to become Italy’s busiest station, with 150 million passengers travelling through every year. From 32 platforms, 850 trains run locally and all over the country each day. This is also where the airport trains terminate, and visitors arriving from Fiumicino Airport can get to the station in just 30 minutes. Milan-Rome takes just under 3 hours, the journey from Florence is as little as 1h20mins, whilst travelling from Naples takes 1h10mins. Travellers will find an array of public transport systems nearby, including the underground, trams, buses and taxis. There are also smaller train stations scattered around the city, including Roma Ostiense and Roma Porta San Paolo, amongst others.
Getting to the city centre after arriving at Roma Termini train station is easy because it’s already in the centre! In fact, it’s just a 5-minute walk to the nearest major attraction — Terme di Diocleziano. These baths were the largest in the ancient city and designed to hold 3,000 people at once. From here, a further 10-minute stroll takes visitors to the rather grand Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. Step inside to discover beautiful mosaics adorning the floor and centre aisle. And, just a few hundred metres further on is the impressive semi-circular Piazza della Repubblica, with its large fountain and majestic arcades. On this square, visitors will also find the Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, dedicated to Christian martyrs. Culture vultures have their work cut out in this capital, which is filled with treasures like Palazzo Barberini, less than a 10-minute walk away and home to the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica. Masterpieces by Caravaggio, Raphael, Titian and many others are displayed inside.
When it comes to grabbing a quick bite, there are restaurants and other eateries at the station. Alternatively, if passengers are looking for something to eat outside the station but still nearby, they should head to Via Magenta, Via Cavour and Via del Viminale. These are all popular areas for food around the station, where travellers can sample some of Italy’s finest cuisine. Choose from the vast range of dishes, including authentic carbonara, pasta with cheese and pepper, lamb chops or maybe the local delicacy of fried artichokes.
