Rome has several train stations. The biggest and most well-known stations are:

  • Roma Termini: most of the international trains arrive at this station. It’s the central station of Rome and it is located at the Piazza dei Cinquecento. This square is a stop for a lot of busses and taxis which makes it easy to travel to the center of Rome. Also the two metro lines of Rome get together here.  The information office for tourists can be found here as well .

 

  • Roma Tibertina: this is the second largest train station behind Roma Termini and is located in the North-East of the city. Some international trains arrive here. At this station you have a connection to metro line B and to a lot of busses who leave there. Furthermore, one can find plenty of taxis to travel to the city center .

 

  • Roma Ostiense: this station is located in the South of Rome. Also from this station there is an easy connection to the public transport to reach the center of Rome .

More information on trains:

ATAC (Azienda Tramvie e Autobus del Comune di Roma) is the bus organization in Rome. The traffic as well as the buses are often very busy which results in the fact that the trip might take longer than expected. Before entering the bus, one has to make sure to buy a ticket beforehand because it is not possible to buy a ticket on the bus. At the train station of Roma Termini one can buy a special tourist card. This card costs €3,10 and can be used for 1 day (or €12,50 for a whole week). With this card, you can travel as much as you want with ATAC. One can, furthermore, use this card to travel by metro. When travelling by bus, it is advisable to buy a map and overview of the bus lines. This can be bought at Piazza dei Cinquecento in front of the Roma Termini station.
