Termini is the main train station in Rome with service to major cities like Venice, Paris, Florence, and like Grand Central in New York (or any big city), you'll have criminals trying to take advantage of those who allow it. Pay attention to your surroundings, don't let people get close, keep your purse zipped and tight under your arm, don't... More

As the main station in Rome, Termini has many platforms, and this turns into a problem when you arrive or depart on the last platforms (22-28) that are easily 5-10 minutes away from the entrance and first platforms. Turning into a possibility to loose your connection. Besides that, eventough is the main station in Rome, it closes at midnight, so... More

This place is a real pit. First of all, it is unclear where you need to catch your train. Then, these kids follow you to your train and act like they are helping you navigate. You can tell them to leave you alone all you want, but they follow you on the train and try to shake you down for... More

I read some really bad reviews of other travellers about this station that I don't really agree with. I've been living in Rome for 11 years and I must say that Termini station is like the heart of the city. It is true there is a lot of caos, because thousands of people from over the world pass through it... More

The station is crawling with gypsies trying to pickpocket, steal luggage or scam you. Some are easy to spot as they look shifty with no luggage ( often in groups) others try to dress like workers of the station. It is better to purchase your tickets online beforehand if possible as they target people at the self serve ticket machines,... More

Termini is a dirty place and at night i wouldn't recommend to go there Cause there will be drunken and homeless people and it isn't safe there But termini has an excellent connection to metro and busses There are also busses for going to the smaller airport and also the international airport is reachable from termini For traveling very good...

We leased a car for most of our trip -- that was a trip in itself -- lol, but we did take the train from the airport to the main terminal and then to Naples. There are lots of shops and places to eat. It is large but you can find your way around, just be there with enough time... More

Our family of 5 took the train from Florence to Rome recently. The train itself was very nice, comfortable and clean. It is truly unfortunate that there is no security to prevent ticket-less people from getting into the station. We were surrounded by gypsies trying to grab our luggage, "help you lift", and then demanding money. Young adults, dressed somewhat... More

During our time in Rome, our family of three arrived at Termini on the Leonardo Express and then returned for day trips to Florence and Pisa. Each time, we easily found our train and had no issues with the automated ticket machines or validation machines. We took the same precautions we'd take at Union Station in Toronto or Pennsylvania Station... More

On way to Civitavecchia after staying in Rome for a few days. 120 euros to travel by taxi to the port so we thought we would travel by train as it is much cheaper!! 5 euro per person. Platform 27 is a bit tricky to find so leave yourself time to get to there. There are gypsies everywhere. One dressed... More
