Make sure you review and station maps before arrival. Knowing where you need to go in the station may help you help you avoid confusion at the station. Those pickpocket groups are well trained. I saw my wife get pick pocketed before my eyes. Before I could get to her they stepped out of the train. These 3 young girls... More

We stopped to look at a map direction,all of a sudden this woman (late 20`s) came & insisted that she wanted to help,did not know the meaning of "No",that we did... More

Pay attention to your belongings!!! Metro tickets buy them from a tabbaccaio which are found near the platforms or go down one level and you'll find the machines. The machines in the upper level are for tickets to be used on the Freccie trains, which are the fast trains going all over Italy.

The station isn't all that bad just be on the look out for pickpockets, they are everywhere and looking for tourist as easy pickings. Keep anything of value close and if someone tries to hand you a baby don't take it because as soon as you have it in your hands the pickpockets will circle you.

We used this station a couple if times, once as a drop of point for the transportation from the airport, and a second time when we used the main train system to travel to Venice. The station is well laid out with clear signage. The two main travel boards are clear giving approx ten to fifteen minutes notice on which... More

If you're arriving by bus or train from the airport, and want to continue the transport to the accommodation by metro, be sure to follow just Metro signs ("M"). We were following the signs "tickets/biglietti", because we wanted to buy tickets for the Metro, but it turns out these lead only to train ticket machines. However, if you follow Metro... More

I understand the need to streamline costs and introduce efficiencies 'but' this is a significant station in a nations capital and I was shocked by the way my wife and I were approached by people asking for money or offering advice when they clearly were not working for the station. As a general observation the police presence ( those in... More

This is the main train station in Rome. If you are visiting, this is the starting point of the touristic buses that run in Rome. There are several places to shop and eat in the station. At night, the place is taken by homeless and drug addicts, so be very careful.

Apperantly they renovate it but Termini in and out stinks. It smells urine. Especially elevators. Because of our baby's stroller we need to use elevators but we could not because of the smell. We had to use escalators (if there is) and stairs. Not only elevators stinks. Also streets were smell urine too. Hate it!

Don't let anyone help you, but the customer service people. The self serve machines can be translated into several languages. If you feel uncomfortable using the machine, there is a customer service area that will help you. We thought we would have to speak Italian, but most understood english. We were not pick pocketed. Beware of people helping you, talking... More
