Under Pope Francis I, the Vatican has opened up a number of sights not usually open to visitors, including the Villa Barberini grounds and Apostolic palace. On this new, Papal Experience Tour, you go beyond the normal tourist route for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience those parts of the Vatican that few have ever seen. This tour is perfect for those with an interest in the Vatican; be it religious, historic, artistic or archaeological.

 Pirate Rome Fiumicino Airport Taxi Serivce


You will probably be approached by Rome Fiumicino pirate taxi drivers as you exit security. They wear official-like labels with the word "Taxi" on the front of their shirts, and this might look official, but these are con artists at work. These people are running a pirate taxi service and for the average tourist, they do look very official. Do not take a pirate taxi from the Rome Airport to Rome as you will pay more than the official price. Pirate taxis will NOT have "Comune di Roma" written on the side of their doors.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Rome Fiumicino Airport taxi service.

Do not take Rome Fiumicino Airport pirate taxis as they are more expensive and lack the insurance requirements.

 Rome Fiumicino Airport Taxi Scams

Truly a Rip-Off

The official Rome Airport price to the city centre is EUR 48 (for up to 4 passengers and all luggage inclusive, any time of day), as regulated by law, but virtually no taxi driver will take you for that price. Even locals avoid the taxi scams and either take a train or shuttle into town.


The latest scam involves a professional, "official" looking sign at the line-up of official white cabs, in Italian and in English, indicating that the standard rate has been increased to EUR 60 Euro. In fact, the rate was recently increased, but only to EUR 48.


For further information check with the P.I.T. – Tourist Information Point of the City of Rome inside the Fiumicino Airport, who will explain the service and let you know whether your particular destination is subject to the fixed rate. The cost of the service is the same for the opposite direction also, going from Rome to FCO Rome Fiumicino International Airport. A lot of tourists are being ripped off at both FCO airport and CIA airport in Rome.
