San Severo railway station is an Italian railway station situated in San Severo. It is one of the main railway stations in the province of Foggia.


The station is served by inter-city trains, local trains and express trains and it is the railway terminus of the line to Peschici.

Even if the station is situated on the outskirts of San Severo, in Piazza della Costituzione (Constitution Square),[2] it is connected to the centre of the town by viale Matteotti (Matteotti Boulevard).


The station was officially inaugurated in 1864.

From 1952 to 1962, San Severo railway station has been the terminus of tram line to Torremaggiore.
