    Station information

    Milan Central Station was opened in July 1931 after replacing the original station which was built in 1864. The old station was only a transit station and with only a small number of tracks and limited space struggled to cope with the influx of traffic of trains caused by the opening of the Simplon Tunnel in 1906 which caused the need for a new station to be built. The station is the largest railway station in Europe by volume carrying 320,000 passengers daily and up to 120 million a year with over 800 trains passing through 24 tracks daily with routes to many cities including Livorno.
