Taxis in Rome

by anooo2000

My husband, I and our two year old will be landing in Rome on a Saturday at 6.10 PM and will need to get to our hotel, De La Ville Roma, which is located at Via Sistina. We will have at least 3 pieces of luggage and a stroller. Should we take a train or a taxi to the hotel? Are taxis really scarce on a Saturday evening even near the airport? How expensive are they?

Take a cab - shouldn't be a problem.

May I suggest that you check out Bill's tips on transportation in and around Rome: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/2ebbe/23513/9/

Re: Taxis in Rome

Peter - thanks!

First, which airport are you coming into? Fiumicino or Ciampino? There's no train service to Ciampino (although it's not far away, but...).

Second, assuming that you are taking a taxi (you would be nuts - to put it politely - to take a 2 year old, 3 pieces of luggage, and a stroller on the train moments after you arrived in Italy), please be aware that there are fixed fares from the airports to places inside the Aurelian Walls (i.e., the city center). Your hotel is inside the Aurelian Walls, so you qualify. If you take Peter's advice and look at my transportation tips, you'll see information on prices and other odds and ends. Since it will cost you two 22 euro (together) to take the train (your child is free, I think) plus another 10+ euro to take a taxi from the train station to the hotel, the 40 fixed fare direct from Fiumicino (even less from Ciampino!) starts to look pretty reasonable.

Third, there will always be taxis at the airport while flights are arriving. They are in a big queue outside the terminal. Ignore anyone in the terminal who approaches you.

Fourth, reconfirm the fixed fare, as it is relatively recent. Some shady drivers (not the majority) might try to convince you to go on the meter (that would be 55+ euro). Note that the fixed fare applies only to taxi drivers licensed by the City of Rome. Taxi drivers licensed by the City of Fiumicino get to charge you 60 euro. So ask.

Fifth, some people like to reserve limos instead - www.airportconnection.it is one such service that is recommended by VTer monorailgold (Donna). The price will probably be slightly higher than the taxi, but they'll be waiting for you at the airport, and you won't have any hassle with arguments over the luggage (or, indeed, fitting it all in) since you will have already told them what you will have.

OK?

Bill

Can I suggest you organise with your hotel that they organise a taxi pickup? That way you can set the price beforehand. You also don't have the problem of haggling etc when you are least capable (tired etc)and you know someone is waiting for you. No problem with the taxi driver etc in terms of where he is going either.

We stayed in an apartment and were able to organise it with the booking agent.

Thank you so much for the wonderful tips. I am going to check with the hotel. If they can't do it, then I will definitely try to go for the fixed fare taxi.

Thanks once again!

Hi Two years ago our taxi , at night, was 55Euro, I think there is a fixed fare. It was worth the money as we got a very good view of the old city ruins at night. I will always remember the moment.

Good luck

Travel Tips for Rome

Go Ahead......Drink The Water

by Ladyplus

Rome has many of these unique water fountains around. The water flows freely and it's main source is the mountains before it reaches Rome's aqueducts.
Many of the aqueducts that were built (between 300 BC to the 1600's) separated high-quality water used for drinking and cooking from water for flushing sewers by accessing different sources. So, take your sports bottle with you and refill as you go.

Don't be afraid

by craic

If you wake - like I did - bright as a button at 5am (jet lag thingo) dying for a cup of tea - and of course your hotel doesn't have tea and coffee making facilities (never found one that did in Italy) just set off on the dawn streets and find a neighbourhood bar.
After 5am the streets are full of early workers heading to work - and anywhere that sells newspapers, smokes, bus tickets and coffee and brioche will be starting to open.
I had to go quite far afield to find one that opened at 5 - down by San Giovanni Metro station -but they will all be open by 6.
Approach the patron at the till - pay for what you want. He will give you a ticket. (Which you keep.) Then he will make it for you. (If you want a brioche take a napkin from the dispenser on the counter, open the display case, grasp your brioche firmly and show it to him.) If you want cold milk in your tea - say "Latte freddo." Otherwise you will probably get limone.
Try to indicate if you want to sit down outside (so you can smoke) because that usually costs a bit more. Maybe 20 cents.
If you are lucky he will chat to you a bit - curious. Then the regulars will greet you. What an adventure.
The bars won't probably have a name. They are all called - it seems - SNACK - BAR - CAFE - GELATERIA.
I went back in daylight to take a photo and no name posted that I could see.
When I say - don't be afraid - I don't mean throw caution to the winds. This is Rome after all.

Metro

by YDraigGoch

When in Rome, if you can get about using the Metro then do so. Its easy to understand, its quick and very cheap. The trains also seem to arrive on time and there are lots of them. Obviously they are busy in the rush hour, but that's to be expected. 4 or 5 Euros will get you to most places. Pick up a map at the station or ask your travel agent to get you one. Directions are good and easy to follow inside the stations.

I've got no idea what the...

by jonkb

I've got no idea what the little taverna is called. We called it 'our italian friend'. Norway (my country) was playing against Italy in the world soccer turnament, and the keeper was verry interested in football. Unfortanetly he doesn't speek much english, so we had to do with a few italian words and our arms.

Bus ride across downtown

by Funreik

From main station Termini take bus number 64 and ride it all the way to the end. This way you get to see a lot of downtown rome and you will enjoy romeans jumping on and of the bus. This is supposed to be one of the most famous' bus rides in Rome. It brings you in walking distance to all downtown sights like trevi fountain, spanish steps, piazza navona, campo die fiori, Vatican, St. Peters, Tiber, Piazza Italia, and even more.
