Monfalcone railway station (Italian: Stazione di Monfalcone) serves the town and comune of Monfalcone, in the autonomous region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, northeastern Italy.

Opened in 1860, the station is a junction between the Venice–Trieste railway and the Udine–Trieste railway.

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.

Location[edit]

Monfalcone railway station is situated at Piazza della Stazione, at the northeastern edge of the town centre.

History[edit]

The station became operational on 1 October 1860 (1860-10-01), upon the opening of the Galleria–Cormons section of the Udine–Trieste railway. On 11 June 1894, the station was connected with that of Cervignano, thus completing the Venice–Trieste railway from Venice via Portogruaro.[1]

Features[edit]

Services inside the station include ticketing, ticket machines, a lounge, a bar and a kiosk.

Passenger and train movements[edit]

The station is a transit stop for all regional trains on the Venice–Trieste railway and the Udine–Trieste railway.

The movement of passengers at the station is about 1.7 million people per year, making Monfalcone the fourth busiest station in Friuli-Venezia Giulia in terms of numbers of passengers, after Udine, Trieste Centrale and Pordenone.[2]
