Everyone warns you about pick pockets around the station and illegal taxis outside the station, but the station itself is very convenient to the centre of Rome and is well laid out and easy to negotiate. Notice the ancient Roman wall when you are there.Recommended for:

Easy, straightforward, and the trains are surprisingly on time (in my experience, at least). I've bought tickets here for both a trip weeks in advance and a trip the day of departure, and the processes were equally hassle-free. If you're taking the bus into the city after you leave Termini, make sure you have a bus ticket - the police are especially strict at checking with buses that leave this station.Recommended for:

From the small Ciampino airport, you'll likely be taking the rail and arrive at the Rome Terminal Railway Station. It offers coffee and food. Plus, the ride from the station to the airport is no more than 30 minutes.Recommended for:

I live in a small town with rotten public transportation, so I really get a kick out of Termini, with all the people heading this way and that dragging suitcases. So many stories! Termini has plenty of cafes and shops, and over the years is becoming more of a transit mall. Tip: Train to the airport (Leonardo Express) and trains to Pisa are WAY in the back, so allow time to walk the 4 or 5 blocks to the track.Recommended for:

Such a cool station. You can get anywhere from here. There are a lot of shops, and tourist information is available for travelers. It can be intimidating, going from one section to the next, but everything is clearly marked so you never feel truly lost (maybe just culturally). Metro ticket counters require cash, with only up to six euros change available. I purchased a monthly pass from a tabaccheria for 30 euros (available the first few days of each month). If you're interested in that, bring extra cash as they may not accept credit cards.
If, like me, you find yourself adventuring way too late in the night and miss the last train home, you can take an owl bus outside of the main entrance to Termini. Stops are listed on signs above the stops, though they are a bit hard to read. Bear in mind that the buses don't always stop, so if you're counting stops... you'll end up lost (again) like me.
And now the negatives: Termini is crowded. If you're headed in a touristy destination, expect a flood of people to enter at this Metro stop. If you're getting off at the stop directly after Termini, be sure to stay closer to the door or start heading to the doors once your stop is announced. It all gets a bit crazy.Recommended for:

I was expecting less modern train station and more history with art installation. It is a big busy train station with nothing special. If you want to buy tickets in person, I suggest you give yourself extra time, because the line is very long.

The station is located in piazza dei Cinquecento, in the heart of the city. The splendid spaces available at Roma Termini are often chosen as locations for concerts, meetings, exhibitions, and for literary and social events. On 23rd December 2006, in an official ceremony, Termini Station was dedicated to Pope John Paul II.

I liked the Rome railway station well enough. It was busy, as many major city train stations are. I didn't have any problems though. I came in from Pisa and then left to Florence through this station. Despite jokes about the trains not running on time after Mussolini, I had no problems.

the main termini in Rome is likely to be a visitor's first experience of Rome if traveling by train or by plane if by the airport train. The terminal itself excludes "oldness" as in there probably hasn't been much upgrades done....ever, but that's ok, because we come here to experience culture, ruins, and things "classic".

This is a busy, chaotic and noisy station in the middle of Rome. It is however not that bad to figure out where and when to go to get to your train. It is also has a small mall that even has a grocery store for stocking up on things at a reasonable price. We like walking around watching the tourists especially the ones with a ton of luggage. Remember that the train to the airport loads way down the track and is quite a walk, although underground is a walkway system. This place is not as seedy as some people make it out to be. We stayed a hotel just around the corner and found the neighborhood good even at night.

What a busy place! I stayed in a B & B nearby and this was just fantastic to have nearby. I traveled to Naples from here and it was so easy to purchase tickets from the station at the automated machines and easy to find the platform you need. Also a fantastic gelataria in the station itself.

Termini is one of Europe's great railway station, though not as aesthetically pleasing as Milano Centrale or Grand Central Station in New York. If you're a backpacker, it's also the best place to find cheap, private lodgings as many apartment owners come here looking for single travelers to rent rooms for a night or two.Recommended for:

Easy to get lost. Haven for pickpockets. We ended up almost missing our train because the signage was very confusing and directed us well out of our way. The metro station was easy to navigate though and was our core transportation option for most of our time in Rome. Definitely get the Roma Pass as it includes transportation, free access to some sights, and discounts to other sights. You can buy the pass from the official government store at the Rome airport (FCO) or search for it online.
