Imperia Porto Maurizio railway station (Italian: Stazione di Imperia Porto Maurizio) is one of two stations serving the city and comune of Imperia, in the Liguria region, northwestern Italy. Opened in 1872, it forms part of the Genoa–Ventimiglia railway, and is situated just over two thirds along the way from Genoa towards Ventimiglia.

The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). However, the commercial area of the passenger building is managed by Centostazioni. Train services to and from the station are operated by Trenitalia. Each of these companies is a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned rail company.

Imperia's other railway station, Imperia Oneglia, is located 2.2 kilometres (1.4 mi) to the east.

Location[edit]

Imperia Porto Maurizio railway station is situated in Piazza Caduti sul Lavoro, near the centre of the city.

Features[edit]

The passenger building has two storeys. Only the ground floor is open to the public. The building is made of brick, is painted brown, and has nine single-light windows with round arches accompanied by cornices.

The station once had a goods yard with an adjoining goods shed. However, the goods yard has since been dismantled and replaced by a parking lot for RFI and Trenitalia employees, and the goods shed has been converted to storage. The architecture of the former goods shed is very similar to that of other Italian railway stations.

There is also a small one-storey building that houses the station chapel. All of the station buildings are rectangular in shape.

The station yard comprises three tracks. Each of them has a platform sheltered by a canopy. The platforms are connected by an underpass.

Passenger and train movements[edit]

The station has about 600,000 passenger movements each year.[1] It is served by both regional and InterCity trains. The main destinations of passengers embarking at the station are Ventimiglia, Genoa and Milano Centrale.

Interchange[edit]

In the square in front of the station, there are bus stops for the following lines:

  • Sanremo-Andora (public transport by Riviera Trasporti);
  • Imperia's urban service.

There is also a taxi rank in the square.
