map

The official vehicles of the taxi service in Rome are colored white with a taxi led top light display. The Rome city council’s symbol as well as the taxi licence number are both clearly displayed on the car front doors and inside the vehicle (rear doors left).

Before commencing the journey, unless the journey is for a fixed fare in which case this does not apply, check that the taximeter is switched on (situated above the dashboard or on the upper section of the windscreen). Should it not be switched on, ask the driver to do so. Always ask for a receipt of payment.

Roma Capitale provides a telephone service for calling a taxi, simply call 060609 (an automated answer system linked directly to the closest taxi rank).
