We've traveled by train many times while in Italy and its a great way to see the country with an expansive rail network. The problem is with train numbers, destinations, platforms and times which are generally badly displayed. Unless you are familiar with a particular station or route, it isn't always obvious which train is going where and from which... More

Built in 1931 under Benito Mussolini, this place is grand inside and out. We were a bit intimidated by the vastness and the great number of people here. If you are familiar with Grand Central Station, you should have no problem. First, you need to be careful with your valuables. A friend of mine lost her phone as someone went... More

The station is very large and has so many details to see. There are automated kiosks to get tickets for almost all the trains. A few small restaurants and stores within as well.

Even if you are not planning to travel, the station is worth going to look at. It's architecture is very good. We wandered around before catching the train to Venice for the day. If you are catching a train, allow plenty of time, ticket queues can be long. We bought our tickets online and the printed ticket was fine to... More

Extremely crowded! Easy to navigate through. Nice location. Hotels and restaurants nearby. However, with so much going on, watch your valuables and belongings.

So sad to see many poor people and many robbers. No sign of police, no sign of civilization. A part that everything is horrible inside

With the grand arched glass ceiling creating a doorway for your journey on modern Italian trains you enter and exit the world of today via a station that reminds you of yesterday. there is also lots of shopping and food if you want. For me though it was the sense of adventure that this train station evokes with its many... More

We had a 2 hour layover and it was chaotic, no public washrooms we used the Mac Donald's and it was a dump. Staff at the station are rude so avoid asking for info unless you really need it.

The architecture of this building is stark, fascinating, and historical. It embodies the fascist Mussolini era with its attempts to convey power.

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
