If you want to take a city tour in Rome by taxi, there are some things you need to know!

First, it is important to choose a reliable and regular taxi driver.

When you take a taxi at the railway stations, airports or main squares, where there are official taxi stations, make sure you rely on them and not on irregular and illegal cars. Make sure the driver turns on the meter at the start of the journey and does not negotiate the price.

Once you have found your taxi driver, you can ask him to give you a personalized city tour. He or she may be able to recommend the city’s most popular attractions, but if you already have an idea of where you want to go, let the taxi driver know your destination.

Taxis can access many restricted traffic zones (ZTL) in central Rome, so your taxi driver may be able to show you some of the older and more fascinating parts of the city that you may not see by tour bus or on foot.

Roman traffic can be very intense and chaotic, especially during peak hours, so we advise you to try to plan your tour to avoid peak hours, if possible of course.

In general, a city tour by taxi in Rome can be a fun and convenient experience to discover the treasures of the Eternal City.

Taxi City Tour

Tours organized by taxi companies such as Samarcanda can offer a very convenient and personalized experience for visiting the city’s attractions. Sightseeing tours performed by taxi are usually entrusted to experienced and drivers well-informed about the city, so they can offer visitors useful and accurate information on various destinations.

Furthermore, organized tours can be tailored to the specific needs of visitors. For example, if you are short on time, your driver may suggest that you visit only the city’s main attractions, while if you have more time, you may be able to see lesser-known and hidden places as well.

As with any organized tour, it’s important to ensure that the taxi company you choose is reputable and that prices are clear from the outset. Before booking a tour with any taxi company, be sure to check online reviews and read the details of the offer carefully to make sure you get the best possible value for money and can pay with secure systems.

For example, Samarcanda offers its own app that allows you to pay directly in it, while being certain about the final price. The app is called Samarcanda Plus and can be used in Rome as well as in Milan, Turin and Naples.
