"Taxi Driver at Vatican Museum" Taxis Tip by swiftfoot
Taxis, Rome: 13 reviews and 2 photos
I took a taxi from the queue as I stepped out of the Vatican Museum. For the short trip to Piazza Navone, the taxi meter showed 21 Euros. At the piazza, I was certain I gave the driver 50 Euros. But by some sleight of hand, he showed me a 10 Euro note that he claimed was what I handed him. My wife thinks he had a 10 Euro in his right hand, received the 50 Euro with his left and then flashed me the 10Euro with his right.
Lesson: Display the note (with both hands) to the driver and declare its value before handing it over - so that he cannot claim you gave something smaller.
