Firenze Campo di Marte (or simply Firenze Campo Marte) is the third railway station of Florence
and the eighth station of Tuscany
and the biggest station in south Florence. The station is mostly used by commuters going to Florence coming from the nearby countryside.
All regional trains going south and Santa Maria Novella stop at the station. The trains that do not go through Firenze Santa Maria Novella Railway Station
pass through here, making it an alternative station. Also, some InterCity, express, and international trains serve Campo di Marte. The station controls most of the traffic in the Florentine area. However, some trains only pass through Rifredi or Santa Maria Novella.
The station has nine platforms all covered by a station-roof. There are self service dispensers on platforms 2 and 3, 4 and 5. In 2009, the station platforms are being raised to 55 cm. This will make easier for passengers to get on and off the trains. RFI is improving the station because Campo di Marte is going to be the temporary high speed terminal due for works that are going to create the underground high speed station Firenze Belfiore.
The station is near to the Stadio Artemio Franchi, home stadium of Fiorentina. It has 4,800 passenger movements daily.
