All you need to know before you take a taxi in Rome
From the Airport
When exiting the terminals, you may hear “ Taxi, taxi” or be immediately approached by someone who is trying to solicit you a taxi. While, some may even have a badge of sorts with “Taxi” written on it, rest assured that these people are not ‘ official taxi drivers.’ Instead, they are unauthorized drivers posing as taxi drivers and will likely charge you a lot more money than the regular fare. The real taxi drivers are located at the stand where there is a sign that reads “ TAXI” located directly outside of the arrivals terminal. Taxis in Rome are white and have an emblem on the side door that reads “ Comune di Roma.”
Once you’ve reached the taxi stand it’s important that you know how much you will be expected to pay. The city of Rome passed a flat fixed fare from Rome’s Fiumicino and Ciampino airports for those persons traveling into the city center or within the Aurelian Walls. If traveling from Ciampino Airport, the flat fare is €30. From Fiumicino Airport however, the rate is €45. Beware, in addition, there is a fixed fare of €60 for those cabs that are from the city of Fiumicino to Rome’s city center. So when standing in line at the taxi stand, make sure your taxi reads “ Comune di Roma” and not “ Comune di Fiumicino,” otherwise your taxi fare will be slightly higher. The cost of luggage in all cases, is included in the price.
If you’re unsure whether you qualify for the fixed fare or if your hotel lies within the Aurelian walls consult this map posted on the City of Rome’ website.
From Rome’s Termini Train Station
As with the airport, you will likely encounter unauthorized taxi drivers trying to solicit you a taxi. They usually stand near the taxi stand in front of the main entrance of Termini Station. If you’re planning to take a taxi from Termini, there is a supplement of €2 that will be added to the total fare at the end of your ride. Listed below, you’ll find a list of fares:
Monday –Saturday from 7am- 10pm the meter starts at €2,80
Sundays and Holidays the meter starts at €4,00
Night fares from 10pm-7am, the meter starts at €5,80
* Each piece of luggage with the following dimensions cost (cm 35x25x50) €1,04 each.
