Taxi Travel

When taking a taxi in Naples, make sure that the meter is switched on at the start of your trip. Trips around the city are unlikely to cost less than €6 or more than €20. Set fares for various destinations within the city should be displayed in the taxi—for instance, in accordance with the new taxi tariff, you should pay €6 for travel between the centro storico (historic center) and the train station. You need to establish this before the trip begins. Extra charges for things like baggage and night service should also be displayed. For trips outside the city, negotiate your fare before getting in. Watch out for overcharging at three locations: the airport, the railway station, and the hydrofoil marina. And in peak summer weeks, don't forget that many cabs in Naples have no air-conditioning—which the city's buses and metro do have—so you can practically bake if caught in one during a half-hour traffic jam.
