Taxis make up for about half of the overall commuting system in Rome, with tourists opting for taxi services to and from the airport, or traveling back to hotels and hostels late at night. However, traffic in Rome can be a bit unbearable at times, therefore a direct route via metro or tram is often a more viable option. Furthermore, unlike many other cities in the world, “taxi hailing” isn’t a common practice in Rome. Instead, taxis are lined up at designated taxi stands, which you have to walk to. Busy metro stations, piazzas (squares) and tourist attractions such as the Vatican, Colosseum and the Pantheon are some intersections where you can easily get a taxi in Rome.
