Reggio di Calabria Centrale railway station (Italian: Reggio di Calabria Centrale) is the main railway station of the Italian city of Reggio, in Calabria. It is the most important station of its region and is owned by the Ferrovie dello Stato, the national rail company of Italy.
The station was opened on 3 June 1866, as southern terminal of the first track of the Ionian Railway to Catanzaro, Crotone, Sybaris and Taranto. In 1881 it was linked to the port with a link from Reggio Lido to Reggio Marittima, the port station. The northern track to Villa San Giovanni, linking the station to the Battipaglia–Reggio di Calabria railway, was completed in 1884.

Structure and transport
The new station building, projected following the modern criteria of the futurist architect Angiolo Mazzoni, was inaugurated on 18 April 1938. It counts a single floor and is located in front of the sea coast.
The station, electrified, is served by several regional trains and by a suburban rail connecting all the 10 stations of the city, from Villa San Giovanni to Melito di Porto Salvo. For long distance transport it counts some InterCity, Express and EuroStar trains to Rome, Turin, Milan, Venice, Bari and Bolzano, linking it also with Genoa, Naples, Bologna, Florence, Pisa, Verona and other cities. Periodically it counts on direct connections to Udine and Trieste. Reggio Centrale has not international relations and direct trains to Sicily (connected with the near station of Villa San Giovanni); and all the high-speed trains (EuroStar) provide to link it with Rome on the line via Lamezia, Salerno and Naples.
