Firenze Campo di Marte (or, simply, Firenze Campo Marte) (IATA: FIR) is the third railway station of Florence and the eighth station of Tuscany and the biggest station in south Florence. The station is mostly used by commuters going to Florence coming from the nearby countryside
All regional trains going south and Santa Maria Novella stop at the station. The trains that do not go through Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station pass through here, making it an alternative station. Also, some InterCity, express, and international trains serve Campo di Marte. The station controls most of the traffic in the Florentine area. However, some trains only pass through Rifredi or Santa Maria Novella.
The station has nine platforms all covered by a station-roof. There are self-service dispensers on platforms 2 and 3, 4 and 5. In 2009, the station platforms are being raised to 55 cm. This will make easier for passengers to get on and off the trains. RFI is improving the station because Campo di Marte is going to be the temporary high speed terminal due for works that are going to create the underground high speed station Firenze Belfiore.
The following services call at the station (incomplete):
- Night train (Thello) Paris - Bologna - Florence - Rome
|Preceding station||Trenitalia||Following station|

Waiting Room services
There are some late night trains that arrive at this station but the waiting rooms may be closed during that time. Please note that the waiting rooms for passengers are not open from 11pm to 5am and you may have to wait on the platforms which is especially difficult during winter. Also, you will not find any open restaurants/cafe/bar inside the station during this time. So, plan your travel accordingly. You can just use the self-service dispensers on the platforms.
