Salerno by taxi, Salerno, Italy (Photo )

The taxi cabs of Salerno—plus car services, private transfers, and chauffeur services

Where can I get a taxi in Salerno?

You usually go to an official taxi stand or taxi rank—which are located at train stations, bus terminals, and major tourist sites, city squares, and boulevards.

It is rare in Italy to hail a taxi on the street. You can try to do it, but it's just not something that Italians do and so many (confused) cabbies will not bother to stop for this weird tourist who, for some reason, is frantically waving his or her arms at them from the edge of the sidewalk. 

Alternatively, you can call a taxi to come get you—though that costs a bit more, since the flag falls when they leave to get you, plus there is a call fee. Try these "Radio Taxi" numbers:

  • tel. 089-229-947 (at the train station)
  • tel. 089-229-171 (in the center)
  • tel. 089-239-494 (near the Duomo)
