    Car Hire at Palermo Notarbartolo Station – Connecting Sicily, Italy

    The railway station of Palermo Notarbartolo is one of the main train stations in the Italian island of Sicily. It opened its doors in 1974 and is regarded as the second busiest in the city – after Palermo Centrale Train Station. The train station offers up regional services across several platforms, linking Palermo to Trapani, and Palermo to Palermo Giachery. Much of the train station is contained below street level, with a metro linking both main Palermo train stations. Due to its prime location at the Piazza Matteo Maria Boiardo, a car hire at Palermo Notarbartolo Train Station is a great alternative to hiring at the airport.

    The train station and services are managed by the state-owned railway company – Rete Ferroviaria Italiana and Trenitalia. It has undergone substantial modernisation to include a small shopping centre and arcade. There is a local bus terminal for easy interchange between rail and bus services. Rail links are provided to Giachery, Punta Raisi and Palermo Centrale.

    Station Information

    The current train station is located north of downtown Palermo on one of the city’s main avenues. Although construction was started in the 1930s, it wasn’t completed until 1974 due to the Second World War and political factors. The main terminal is located at street level, whilst the railway lines themselves were relocated underground. Once this station was opened, the older Palermo Lolli Station was closed. The station has a metro-link to the Palermo Centrale and a bus terminal.
