“Easy Peasy for good Travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Used the station to get from rome to venice. Very well laid out, long lines, but where there are tourists , there are lines. It was my first time even being in a train station , ate at an awesome american restaurant (roadhouse), and boogied. Not a bad experience at all!

“Tourist hub with a lot of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

One of the largest railway sattions in Europe with over 30 platforms. It´s a strategic hub of transportation throughout Rome. From there are trains to most of the major cities. Also there comes the train from the airport to Fiumiccino. In the basement there are countless shops and several small markets to buy from food to gifts. Being a busy station must be careful with personal belongings. La mayoría de los tickets se venden en maquinas expendedoras automaticas. Eurostar trains departs from here. The sation takes its name from the thermal baths in latin "thermae" It has a large underground deposit for luggage (U$D 7) and around the station there are more than 40 hotels and hostels to stay.

“Wished I would have known”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

In September I traveled with my mother to and around central and southern Italy. We took the Circumvesuviana the first week from Naples, Sorrento and Pompei. You get tickets at the station or a tobacco shop and find a seat wherever you can and when the train stops at your destination, you get off. It was similar to riding a bus or subway. Trenitalia tickets,however, have car and seat numbers on them. This was something I wish I had known. We initially sat in the 1st car we came to and took the 1st two seats we found empty after stowing our luggage, as we had done earlier on the Circumvesuviana. Wrong! We were in someone else's seat and in the wrong car! Which meant moving our luggage and ourselves with only 3 minutes -they sound a bell-to go 'til the train leaves the station and my mom's luggage would not fit through the car to car doors of the train! (She brought only one piece but made it count!) Definitely an adventure. So look for your seat assignment on the ticket when using the Trenitalia.

“Central travel hub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Before going to Italy, we decided to spend a day in Florence, we were staying at Hiberia Hotel in Rome. I searched for reasonable train fares and picked between Tiburtina station and Termini station, I found good rates with Freciarossa and Freciargento by Trenitalia online, we picked second class, which was comfortable, they also had convenient online ticketing. This was the same price as the one coming from Tiburtina station. good choice, we passed through Tiburtina and it appeared to be in a questionable area, especially if the departure is early in the morning, it's a little scary and had lots of graffiti. I highly suggest using Termini, just be aware of thieves, but all of the train stations in Europe have them, so I suggest using a belt bag with zipper facing in underneath clothing, and of course empty pockets. Also, arrive early so you have time to search for the proper personnel to ask for directionsnor questions. I suggest asking the workers or the booth of the specific train company you are using.

“Be careful! Don't take advice from tourist desk!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

After traveling through dozens of train stations in Europe, Rome was BY FAR the worst! We loved the tourist desks in Switzerland and France, and so with optimistic minds we stopped at the Rome desk. Learn from us, DONT stop there. They told us they could only print us out hotel names, rather than book one (which we were able to do at every other desk we stopped at.) Then they told us to talk to the "guys" who were drunk men in street clothes trying to scam tourist. It was sad situation all around. They kept telling us that they would "walk" us to our hotel, they wouldn't leave us alone after we told them several times we weren't interested. The worst part was that they were working with the train station employees. After dealing with that, we jumped on a train and watched a gang of 14 year old boys pickpocket several people. Thankfully we were prepared for this and had empty pockets. I love the beauty of Rome, it's terrible the station is like this.
