Rome Tiburtina Station is the second largest railway station in the capital city in terms of traffic volume and type, with around 500 trains a day, 140 thousand transits a day and 51 million users a year.
Dedicated to Camillo Benso Conte di Cavour, this station is part of extensive town planning works agreed by Rome Municipality and Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane.
The heart of this project is the large glass gallery located above the existing railway platform which, like an urban boulevard, unites the two Roman districts of Pietralata and Nomentano. The Gallery is 300 metres long and 60 metres wide and a glass parallelepiped on comprising services for both passengers and the city. A grand “suspended container” to which new services are added every day to ensure that this new High Speed Italian Hub is complete and functional for Roman citizens too.
Tiburtina Station offers a wide range of services for passengers, such as ticket offices and information desks, as well as other services for the general public and passers-through. In addition to its role as terminus for fast lines (domestic and international), this station is also an essential interchange between the city road network and rail and road connections entailing three regional lines (FL1, FL2, FL3), the current underground line B, connection with the Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) International Airport and public transport by road.
In March 2015 a new road system on the Pietralata side was opened to traffic. This infrastructure was part of the works carried out to restructure station area. This new system of roads ensures that vehicles arriving from Via dei Monti di Pietralata can cross Via dei Monti Tiburtini and easily reach the Pietralata station lobby.
