Napoli Mergellina railway station (Italian: Stazione di Napoli Mergellina) serves the city and comune of Naples, in the region of Campania, southern Italy. Opened in 1925, it is the third most important railway station in Naples, after Napoli Centrale and Napoli Campi Flegrei. It also forms part of the Villa Literno–Napoli Gianturco 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 are operated by Trenitalia. Each of these companies is a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned rail company.

Location[edit]

Napoli Mergellina railway station is on Corso Vittorio Emanuele, to the south west of the city centre. It is about 200 metres (660 ft) north of the Mergellina marina, from where the hydrofoils depart for the islands in the Gulf of Naples.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 20 September 1925, upon the inauguration of the Villa Literno–Napoli Gianturco railway.[1]

Passenger and train movements[edit]

The station has about 6.2 million passenger movements each year.[2]
