1940s Italian modernism...

Rome Termini is the main station in Rome, and the best station to use for the city centre.  It's called Termini not because it's a terminus, but after the nearby Roman Baths of Diocletian, as the Latin for baths is Thermae.  There's been a station here since 1863.  The original station building was demolished in 1937, but World War 2 delayed reconstruction.  The current station was designed in 1947 and inaugurated in December 1950, another fine example of Italian modernism.  For more about the station's history see Wikipedia entry for Rome Termini station.

Middle concourse, Rome Termini

The central concourse (Galleria Centrale) spans the width of the station with exits to the street on either side of the station.  A row of retail units separates it from the atrium, and from the platforms concourse next to the platforms - think Swatch, United Colours of Benetton, Nike, Victoria's Secrret and so on.  Courtesy of James Pressler.

Terrazza with bars & cafes

The terrace (Terrazza Termini), one floor up from ground level between the central concourse and the platforms concourse - a good place to have a beer or coffee while waiting for your train.  Courtesy of James Pressler.

Rome Termini inner concourse

The platforms concourse (Fronte Binari) is next to the platforms, accessed through wide gaps in the row of retail units from the central concourse.  A glass partition (visible here) now runs the width of the station, separating the platforms concourse from the platforms.  There are several sets of glass doors through it where tickets are checked when accessing the platforms.  Courtesy of James Pressler.

The platforms, numbered 1 to 29 from left to right (platforms 25-29 accessed by walking down platform 24, platforms 1est & 2est are accessed by walking 550m along platform 1).  You can circulate between all platforms without going through any ticket check.  This photo was taken from the platforms concourse, looking through the glass partition.  Courtesy of James Pressler.
