Public transportation


Public taxis are white, with a code and the sign of the city of Roma on the doors, and with a taximeter.

Do not trust people who approach you offering private taxi service.

In the city center there are a number of taxi parkings, like in Piazza Venezia, Piazza della Repubblica (close to the Palazzo Massimo conference site), Largo Argentina, and Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps).

A taxi can be called at the telephone number 060609 (remember to add +39 international code if using a foreign cellphone). In this case, note that the taximeter is turned on when the taxi picks up the call (fare starts when the taxi is sent to pick you up).

A taxi ride from the National Roman Museum to Piazza di Spagna costs around 8,00 Euro.
