Vercelli railway station (Italian: Stazione di Vercelli) is the main station serving the city and comune of Vercelli, in the Piedmont region, northwestern Italy. Opened in 1856, it forms part of the Turin–Milan railway, and is also a junction station for two other lines, to Valenza and Pavia, respectively.
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.
Vercelli railway station is situated at Piazza Roma, at the northwestern edge of the city centre.
The passenger building is made up of three components: the central part has two levels and a large lobby consisting of five arches. The single storey lateral wings spread symmetrically from the central part, and are smaller. The building is made of brick. It is painted grey at ground floor level, and a rose colour above that level.
Passenger and train movements
The station has around 3.5 million passenger movements each year. There are about 138 trains per day.
