Ravenna railway station (Italian: Stazione di Ravenna) serves the city and comune of Ravenna, in the region of Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy. Opened in 1863, it forms part of the Ferrara–Rimini railway, and is also a terminus of two secondary railways, linking Ravenna with Faenza and Castelbolognese, 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.


Ravenna railway station is situated at Piazza Luigi Carlo Farini, on the eastern side of the city centre.


The station was opened on 23 August 1863, together with the rest of the Castelbolognese–Ravenna railway.[1] Normal passenger services on that railway commenced the following day, 24 August 1863.

  • Eurostar Rome–Ravenna. Runs daily in summer.
