About the station


Many trains heading to Roma from destinations to the north of the Italian capital, including Bologna, Firenze/Florence, Milano and Venezia/Venice call first at the highly impressive Roma Tiburtina station before going on to call at Roma Termini.

As these trains call at Roma Tiburtina before going on to call at Roma Termini, the journey time to Roma Tiburtina is around 10 mins faster – though it makes little difference to ticket prices.

Roma Tiburtina is some distance from the city centre, but Roma Termini isn’t particularly conveniently located for the tourist destinations in the city either.

Some high speed Frecce trains to and from Roma and most of the Intercity trains to/from the city only call at Tiburtina station and don’t serve Roma Termini.

If your final destination in the city is adjacent to Termini station, the most convenient option can be to book train tickets to Termini and then travel on by train from Tiiburtina – in most hours there will be a minimum of three trains to Termini from Tiburtina.

However, the main tick in the box for using Tiburtina station is that it is served by line B of the Roma Metro.

This Metro line also calls at Termini, but if the end point of your journey is located along this Metro line B, there are two reasons why taking a train to Roma Tiburtina and transferring to the Metro there can be a good option.

(1) Tiburtina is less crowded and therefore less chaotic than Termini

(2 It can be a quicker and more reliable journey, trains often get held up trying to access Termini station, so if you opt to make the transfer at Tiburtina, you can be in central Roma before your fellow passengers are leaving the train at Termini.

If you’re heading to central Roma on a Regionale or Regionale Veloce train, which has travelled via Orte, transferring to the Metro at Tiburtina can be particularly convenient.

These trains can arrive at Termini station at binaro (tracks/platforms) which are located some distance from the main concourse at that station.
