Overview of Fiumicino Airport taxi services - city cab or private car

On paper the licensed taxi services from the Fiumicino airport terminal taxi rank are a very attractive option. The airport authorities have set a fixed fare of 48 euro between Fiumicino Airport and destinations in Rome city centre defined as within the Aurelian Walls, (see map further down the page).


The taxi fare includes baggage and is for a maximum of four passengers. Vehicles are a mixed bag but tend to be much smaller than Mercedes saloons so common in other cities.



Many are small - see the image right taken at the taxi rank at Fiumicino, more a solution for a single business traveller with briefcase than leisure travellers with luggage.

If you have more than 3 large cases, luggage may be a problem.


The cars for the taxi service of the City of Rome are white and can be recognized by the sign "TAXI" on the top and by the identifying licence number on the doors, on the back and inside the car.


Unfortunately the taxi cabs in Rome have a poor reputation for ripping off unsuspecting tourists especially at the airports and Termini Station.


A lot of the time the culprits are not licensed taxi cabs at all but people masquerading as such.


If you are not going inside the city walls then the fare will be metered. Check that the correct Tariff band (there are two) is being applied.


Unlike the standard fares for going into Rome city centre where bags are part of the fare, for metered rides you will be charged a supplement for each item of luggage.


Above all reject anybody that approaches you offering a taxi or private car transport in the terminal area. Either get a Rome city cab from the taxi rank or pre-book a private car in advance - anybody else is operating illegally, probably in an unlicensed cab.


The Fiumicino airport taxi rank is reasonably well organised with a single lane where the cabs should be forming an orderly queue and its pure chance which individual cab is your turn.

If you notice any cab hanging back or leading you to a cab not next in the queue, be suspicious.
