"The Cabbies" Taxis Tip by mvtouring

Taxis, Rome: 18 reviews and 2 photos

This is probably the biggest rip off that I experienced in Rome. arriving there by train and not knowing where our hotel was, we decided to take a cab. The guy took us on an unguided tour and we were charged 30 euros to go about 1/2 a mile. Make sure you get the right cab as there are some "unofficial" ones around, and visit the tourist desk enquire about the distance to your hotel before getting into a cab. I know we are always in a hurry to get to our hotel and start sight seeing, but spending a little extra time to gather info will save you lots of money in the long run.
