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.

    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.

    Navigating at Termini
    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.

    Busy but easy to navigate.
    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!

    Convenient connection to everywhere
    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.

    Needs improvements with organization and security
    Many people and a big confusion !! There are of course information centers which help you with everything but you need to get there very early to find where you want to go and how . Please be kindly informed that very late in the night and early in the morning it is a very dangerous place

We were travelling to the airport and the express train was the sensible option. The station was very busy even on a Sunday and in such a crowded place, pickpockets will thrive. We were extremely wary and managed to avoid any hassle. There are lots of good shops and many places to eat (all were very busy). The ticket machines did not want to accept my credit cards so I had to pay in cash. It was clean throughout.

I am very cautious at Termini. In 2015, a guy grabbed my backpack. By good luck- and after a lot of shouting (by me) - he dropped it. This year, I’ve twice seen some very frail looking people leaning on walking sticks in action. One reached suddenly for my bag and one robbed a woman on the metro. They try to distract you first.

Horrible, intimidating, and unfriendly railway station. If there wad a minus star option it would be minus 5!!!

The kindest thing I can say about Termini is that it's a necessary evil!

Caught 2 pick-pockets in action. One got a handful of tissues thankfully, the other almost got a camera, but his hand was grabbed. He just looked at us like, 'yeah? So what?'

Crowd and police watching crowd were hostile. Also beware anybody other than the police coming up to tell you to beware of pick-pockets, as they can be pick-pockets acting as nice people! It's good to have the police there, and they are vigilant but they are vastly outnumbered!

I spent 22 minutes in Termini station and will never set foot in it again if I can help it!!

My luggage was stolen from the airport express to Rome. It was my first day of vacation, to say I was upset is nothing to say.
The clerk on duty at the station was no help. The police said to wait and the people in line in front of us had been waiting for 5 hours. The police didn't help either. Everyone just spread their hands around.
There are cameras on the train, but no one will help you look for thieves. So watch carefully and don't leave your luggage in the luggage area on the train.

Very large central station with a lot of platforms. Very busy with a lot of places to buy food and coffee plus some general stores and a supermarket. Lots of hotels around, lots of public transit hook-ups.

Just to confirm other people’s reviews. Rome termini and metro A and B stations are rife with pick pockets. I am a careful annd experienced traveller and I lost my wallet in less than 30 seconds by two young girls you would not think as thieves. The first girl blocked my way when getting on a train in the metro B (Cavour station) whilst I tried join my wife who had just boarded. Within 15-30 seconds while I tried to pass this girl, the second girl behind me unzipped my trouser pocket and stole my wallet. The fun begins tying to report the theft. The first station was too busy dealing with other tourists who had similar experiences to us. We had to visit four police stations before we were able to file a report. We met a local Italian lady whilst waiting at the final police station who explained to us that the Italians are really angry and embarrassed about this problem but the police do nothing to stop this. We approached several police prior to this most of whom were patronising and quite frankly unhelpful. Rome is an amazing city. We think we would like to visit here again. This is just to advise future visitors the pickpockets around Rome Termini and metro are really good at what they do i.e steal other people’s money, phones and documents with no regard to the chaos they cause to their prey. They work in teams. Just be warned. There is a huge problem here with pickpocketing. We will be catching a taxi on our return journey and will not be using Rome metro again it’s plagued with these people.

The train station it’s a very well laid out functional train station. There’s 25 different train lines there’s a shopping mall basically attached to a train station which gives you pretty much anything you would want for the most part. Unfortunately the negative part of the station is it’s a High Point for pickpockets. Don’t leave your luggage on attendant keep all personal documents and money, preferably under a zippered pocket one that can easily be opened.

Do no travel to Rome on a train to this station. Staff and police officers do not care about Tourists and if you don’t speak Italian is even worse. We got our luggage stolen when we went to the metro to buy the card transportation and we got directed to the Police station. We went there twice during our stay, making us wait outside for more than 2 hours and we were never able to submit a report for what had happened to us. After multiple hours my husband was told “We don’t speak English” honestly it was the worse experience! People is rude and they treat you like you are nobody. You will never receive any customer service like you do in USA!

Termini is a major rail station connecting Rome to other major cities around the country with numerous arrivals and departures providing extensive travel options for those seeking rail travel to/from the city. The station is connected to the city centre by local buses, Metro (A & B Line) and taxis. Or just walk to your hotel if staying in the Termini area. There are cheap bus options to the airport to/from Termini as well.

You can purchase rail tickets online, through mobile app, at self-use ticketing machines or manned ticket counter within the station. Train platforms are located past glassed in barrier. Scan or show tickets and you can enter to await trains directly on respective platforms. You'll find a few cafes, food outlets and retail shops. We waited outbound rail journey recently at the recently opened Eataly upstairs place.
