We took the first class fast train from Rome to Florence, which is an 2+ hour trip in comfort for 150 euros pp. The ride was fast and comfortable, the train not full, The sight seeing is enjoyable. The train was clean. The train was...More
Looking back at our first view of Termini some 40 years ago, it has undergone a vast transformation. It is a new modern building that seeks to provide a complete service to Italy's rail travellers. While it is nostalgic to look at the former dark...More
The easiest and most reasonable way to travel ITALY is with trains. We travelled to Rome and exited using the railway. The train station is a hustle and bustle hub of Roma. Trains are generally on time so you have to be on time at...More
Termini is big & bustling...all the time it seems...it's best to have your tickets beforehand ..it's easy to negotiate,however I draw your attention to the necessity of watching the departure electronic screens(along with the crowd also watching) as sometimes,the platform number changes from that shown...More
I was a bit nervous trying to maneuver through the station and figure out how to get from point a to point b. I highly recommend downloading the Rome metro app. It is “dummy” proof. We used the metro in which was very clean and...More
First came here in 1981 and it was extremely chaotic and dirty. Conditions have really improved by 2018, even over 2014. A lot less scammers around and pretty clean for a place with so many people. Ticket machines work well in different languages. True that...More
The station is easy to use and straight forward for the airport transfer. However be mindful- on our trip home we weee buying our ticket at the machines in termini station and were approached 3 times by people in no uniform, asking if we need...More
a major station, modern and very very busy.
Here is an important hint for tourists.
The taxis in Rome are not easy to stop on the streets around the city, contrary to the usual tradition of New York.
At Roma Termini they have a designated...More
Termini is an efficient station if you live and work in Rome. The train boards are clear enough, what train going where at what gate. If you are a tourist however, don't buy your ticket until you know what train you are going to purchase...More
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. 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 neighborhood 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 center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

I would buy tickets through trenitalia.eng for an English language version. Book up to 6 months before travelling to get the best prices. Then send your ticket receipts to sala blue at Roma termini - TripAdvisor will not allow a URL here but you can search it on google. Sala blue will help your mobility challenged husband to the train and into the seat including handling one piece of luggage. Every major train station had a sala blu office where you report at least 30 minutes prior to train departure. They do not like last minute requests for their service but the service is excellent. I use it several times a year when I am in Italy. You can also connect with the sala blu office in either venice or firenze (florence) if you are originating at one of those stations
You can email Sala Blu at Roma Termini by searching for salablu at roma termini. Sorry but TA does not like url's in these messages. They will need complete ticket information (I advise that you use trenitalia (they have... More
You can email Sala Blu at Roma Termini by searching for salablu at roma termini. Sorry but TA does not like url's in these messages. They will need complete ticket information (I advise that you use trenitalia (they have an english page) for train reservations in english) so that they can get you on the right train/car/seat and arrange for you to be met at your destination or transfer point. You can communicate with them in english. Every major station has its own sala blu office and email address but the one from which you are originating will coordinate with all of them. You can also search for their email addresses online. When arriving at Roma Termini, have your driver let you out at the second entrance off of Via Marsala as this will put you as close as possible to the Sala Blu office. One hint: make arrangements early as they do not like to do last minute changes to their routine. If you buy one month in advance you will get better pricing and Sala Blu will happily set everything up.
