History

Pisa Centrale station was constructed following the implementation of a development plan approved on 23 March 1871. Its building led to the conversion of the old Leopolda station (inaugurated in 1844) into a freight yard, which functioned until 1929, when it was closed permanently. The whole Pisa Centrale complex was severely damaged during World War II and rebuilt with some changes to the original design.

Station

The passenger station building is large and offers numerous services such as domestic and international ticketing, waiting room, baggage storage, three bars, pizzerias, fast food, cafeterias, three newsagents, tobacconist, pharmacy and other shops. Inside the station there are 16 platforms equipped with elevators and connected by two subways. Other tracks are used for storing unused carriages. Since December 2008 the station has been equipped with a computerised control centre to control the movement of rail traffic.

The station is used by approximately 15 million passenger movements, both tourists and commuters. Trains of all types stop at the station, including Inter-city, Frecciargento and Frecciabianca. The main destinations are Florence, Genoa, Rome, Naples, Livorno, Lucca, La Spezia and Turin.
