Use caution in Termini - con artists dressed to appear like uniformed train staff will distract your group and provide the wrong directions and information. If they are unable to pick your pockets, they will demand a "service fee" to go away. Reporting them to the police got no attention. This station is very poorly run, organized and staffed. Such...

Clean and reasonably organized. Must remain vigilant regarding pickpockets. El Termini in Rome has a great mall and one can find some deals depending on sales. The train is an excellent way to travel in Italy and Europe overall.

We felt overall very safe, of course you need to be watchful of pickpockets, but the police seem to be everywhere. The train stations are run so efficiently, we love riding them.

That's Termini for you. Everything that is worse of the Country can be sampled here. And I don't call it a den of thieves for nothing. I got my bag that contained the ipads and camera, pinched right under my nose. And before this I actually observed young girls and men trying to "help" people with their tickets and bags... More

Be prepared for a potential long walk to your train, this is a very large train station and some tracks are a good km of walking.

Have been here a few times whist travelling around Italy. Have never had a problem with safety or pickpockets so just keep your whits about you and you will be fine. Although there are a few cafe bars and places to get food this is ok. Getting tickets is slightly more difficult as staff can be abrupt but just expect... More

Not much to be said for Termini other than it is very much like any other major city Hub station. About 20 minutes walk from the main attractions of Rome would suggest you get a hotel between Termini and the center to balance cost/convenience. Very well laid out - very simple even if you do not speak Italian. Generally clean... More

Chaotic, dirty, and rife with illegal activity. Be careful of fake helpers. They are all scammers. Do not fall for the fake badges and lanyards they wear. Also make sure you read the back of ticket to see if validation is required...otherwise you pay a hefty fine.

This station is overrun with frauds who work so effectively and look (through a thin veil of deceit) like official workers (they all wear Italia Polo Shirts and some have lanyards but no actual i.d. cards attached) that its easy to see how people are fooled. Its not until you stand still for 10 min and observe that you see... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
