Verona taxi cabs

The taxi cabs of Verona

Really, the public transit system is so great—and strolling the streets so much fun—I rarely find the need to take a taxi in Verona.

Still, late at night or laden with luggage, a cab is not a bad idea. Here's what you need to know.

Where can I get a taxi in Verona?

You usually go to an official taxi stand or taxi rank—which are located at train stations and bus terminals and near all 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 this "Radio Taxi" number:
