Termini Train Station is the central railway station in Rome. It is the largest in Italy and second largest in Europe for passenger traffic, after the Gare du Nord in Paris, with about 800 trains a day for a total of about 150 million passengers a year. Termini Train Station took its name from the ancient Baths of Diocletian located nearby. It began construction in 1862 and was opened to the public the following year. Major reconstruction was done in the 1930s and in 2000 for the Jubilee, when it was finally modernized. Today it has more than 30 tracks carrying various categories of train: AV (high-speed trains connecting Rome with the most important Italian and foreign cities), Eurostar and Intercity dedicated to domestic routes, and interregional, regional and direct trains that depart more frequently and make more frequent stops. The Leonardo Express, which provides a direct service to Leonardo da Vinci Airport runs daily at regular intervals. Termini Station is very large and provides a range of services to passengers: on the first floor you will find large ticketing and travel assistance services. There are also many restaurants and shops such as McDonalds, various sandwich shops, news stands, and clothing stores. Below the station there is a rather lager shopping center with shops, restaurants, toilets and access to the subway system. There is also a large bus terminal in front of the station that makes getting around the city a breeze. For more information check out the website!
