Question re: short distances in Rome via taxi

Jump to last reply

Our primary experience with using taxis in Europe has been in Athens when we traveled with our infant son. In Athens (in our experience), the drivers are the ones who decide if they want to take you where you wish to go or not and they were not interested in short distance trips. Otherwise, we have always hoofed it anywhere we traveled within Europe or used public transportation.
We will be in Rome in a few weeks and will have our son (now 1) and my parents with us including my Mom who is likely getting a knee replacement within the next year. I can foresee the possibility of relying on taxis more than we have ever done previously, and am curious if Roman taxi drivers are willing to accept passengers needing to only go short distances (per se, 1.5 - 2km). I am aware of the need to find a taxi stand. I know this sounds like a bizarre question... but anyone who has tried using taxis in Athens will understand where I'm coming from!
We are staying in an apartment near the Pantheon on Via del Seminario. I know of the taxi stand at Largo Argentina. Is this the closest?
Many Thanks!
TA
