Naples Taxis

Contrary to what you might have heard, Naples Taxis won’t necessarily “take you for a ride.” By and large they are clean, well regulated and fairly economical. Naples taxis are more expensive on Sundays and holidays and after 22:00 and there are of course supplements for dispatch fees, baggage, etc.

The Naples taxi tariff system offers both meter rates and fixed tariffs. All taxis are required to display the Tariff Card (in Italian and English) on the back of the front seat of the taxi to allow the rider to choose either a metered journey or fixed tariff price. If you want a fixed tariff rate however, you must tell the driver that before proceeding.

Meter Rates

The ordinary tariff has a base amount: €3,50 for weekdays and €6,00 for holidays. To the amount displayed on the taximeter one has to add the supplements listed in the tariff. The minimum amount for weekdays is €4,50.

Fixed Rate Tariffs

In 2012 the Comune di Napoli launched Taxi Per Tutti to make traveling around the centre of the city by taxi even more affordable. Valid 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, there are two fare zones for travel to/from Naples Historic Centre:  €7,00 (zone 1) and €9,00 (zone 2). Additionally, there are fixed rates for a variety of locations within the city (i.e. Chiaia, Capodimonte, etc) and beyond (i.e. Pompeii, Sorrento, etc.). Fixed rate tariffs do not use the meter and include any extra charges (to/from airport, night ride, holiday, luggage, animals), are for the total number of passengers on board the taxi, and are valid for the whole day on weekdays and holidays.

Download the Tariff Card for rates and bands.

Taxi Receipts

Riders can request the receipt of the payment, which has no taxable value. Taxi drivers are not allowed to release receipts different from those authorized by the City Council. The receipt is mandatory for fixed tariff, in this case the receipt must be released before the ride.


Getting a Cab

Getting a cab is not difficult either. Sometimes you can flag one down, but it’s best to get one at a Taxi Rank. There are over 100 Taxi Ranks throughout the city and you’ll find them at all major train stations, the airport, both of the Ports, Molo Beverello and Mergellina and at most major tourist attractions. You can also book a taxi by phone or online with several of Naples taxi companies and some accept credit cards.

    Hi Bonnie – I'm getting into Capodichino on a Friday night at 9:15, from SFO via Munich so will be pretty tired. I'm staying at Covo Degli Angioini in Molo Beverello. I'd been planning on the Alibus, but wonder if I should just take a taxi for the sake of safety and expediency. How expensive would that be, and is it worth it? Thanks so much for all your excellent suggestions.

      Hi Susan – by the time you get your luggage, etc., you might just want to take a taxi.That way you don’t have to wait on the next Alibus departure and find your hotel in the dark. The area around Piazza Municipio is under construction, so you could find yourself having to walk out of the way to get to your hotel.

      The fixed rate should run about 19,00 euro but confirm that with the driver beforehand.

      A taxi from the Airport to Chiaia where your hotel is should be 23,00 euro fixed rate. From the Beverello Port, it is a metered journey and I would guess it would be about 7,00 euro or so.

      Hi Les – we are not a taxi booking site. You can easily get a taxi at the airport, but if you want a booking you will have to contact one of the taxi companies directly.

    Hi Bonnier, myself and my husband are flying into Naples on 18th may and need a taxi to Pompeii hotel forum. Our hotel has said they would book a taxi for us with a cost of 70 euros. Would it be cheaper to just get a taxi from the airport when we arrive

      Hi Joyce – The tariff card is 90 euros for round trip to Pompeii with a two hour wait. Maybe you could get it a bit cheaper upon arrival – though how much I don’t know because they also charge for returning empty from outside of the city.

    Dear Bonnie,
    We are arriving in Naples on Tuesday morning and would like to hire a driver to take us to Vesuvius and Pompei on our way to Sorrento.
    Do you happen to know a trustworthy driver or company that could provide this service?
    Thank you so much if you can help!
    Sincere Regards,

      Hi Judy – its a bit short notice this time of year, but try Jack the Driver. If he’s booked he should be able to give you another recommendation.

        Ok Bonnie, we will just take the hotel taxi as its late when we arrive. You’re site has been very informative for me as a first time visitor and only there for a few days. Thank you.
        ( ps.. I too have contacted jack the driver and did so on Saturday but have had no reply yet regarding a tour to sorrento)

    We need to book a taxi from Naples Airport to Praiano, the Hotel has quoted 120 euros this sounds expensive, would we be best to take one from the Airport Taxi rank and negotiate a price. Thanks Christine

      Bonnie Alberts, May 13, 2014 7:36 am - Naples Taxis

      Hi Christine – Praiano is about 70km from the airport, a 1 ½ hours drive without traffic so that sounds reasonable to me. The quoted rate for Amalfi, which is 8 or 10 km further is 130 euro.

    Bonnie, I will be arriving on June 7 and want ground transportation in the form of a taxi or hired car from the airport. I wouldn’t mind taking the bus but since I have to carry my wifes heavy luggage I can’t. Question – What is the cost of a private driver? And should be the cost of a taxi to the Port of Naples. We are going to be staying at Ischia. Oh, and what about ferry costs?

      Bonnie Alberts, May 28, 2014 1:53 pm - Naples Taxis

      Hi Bill – the fixed taxi tariff from the Airport to the Beverello Port is €19,00 – see the fare schedule here:

      Rates for transport to Ischia vary by the carrier and the type of service – i.e. high speed hydrofoil or ferry. They start at around €11,00 for a Caremar ferry and run to about €19,00 for an Alilauro aliscafo (Alilauro also charges €2,00 for each bag). The ferries leave from Porta di Massa, but there is a port shuttle bus from Beverello or you can go directly by taxi (but double check the taxi rate – I’m not sure it falls under the €19,00 fixed rate).

    Hi Bonnie, there’ll be four of us wanting to get to our hotel on Via Donnalbina from Naples airport with two suitcases. Do you suggest the Alibus to Corso Garibaldi and then catch a taxi or to get a taxi from the airport directly to the hotel? Thank you

      Bonnie Alberts, June 21, 2014 6:14 pm - Naples Taxis

      I believe the fixed rate tariff from the airport to your hotel should be €16,00 (double check that with the driver). If so, by the time you pay 3 or 4 euro per person for the alibus and then for a taxi from the train station, it will probably cost more to do it that way.

  10. Chloe harkin, August 12, 2014 6:30 pm - Naples Taxis

    Hi bonnie, I am hoping you can be some help to me based on the comments I have seen above as I am very confused! We are trying to organise a return transfer from massa lubrenese, just outside of sorrento to naples airport for next saturday. We have got a quote for a shared shuttle of €50 for the two of us. A private transfer looks like it would be about €90 total based on a few quotes I got. Then I have looked at taxis. I went onto a taxiautofare site which calculates approx fares and it quoted €48!! I have looked at the fixed tariff from the airport which says to sorrento you can ask for a fixed fare of €100. Not sure how they can be so different and why a taxi fare would be more than a private transfer when someone actually picks you up from the airport in a fairly nice car?! We went to thailand earlier in the year and I know we were advised to always ask for meter as they try to make a fix price and it is always higher. problem is, this site does not let me book anything through it as far as I can tell and I am not sure how reliable it is and is this is total price or price per person. If we can get a taxi for €60 or under we will def take that option so we don’t have to be picked up hours in advance by the shared shuttle. Have you any advise about this please? Thank you

      Hi Chloe – I don’t know of the site you are using but I can’t imagine a taxi fare of €48 from Massa Lubrense to Naples. The fixed tariff is €100 euro by taxi. It’s about 60 km (about 40 miles) from Massa Lubrense to the Naples airport and traffic around the Sorrento coast this time of year can be very bad. Its about an hour and 15 minutes ride without traffic, so I wouldn’t advise asking for a meter rate. Your other option is to take a taxi from Massa Lubrense to the Sorrento train station and catch the Curreri Viaggi bus to the airport from there. They have about 10 departures a day and tickets are €10 per person. For private transfer – check with Jack the Driver.

    Hi Bonnie,

    I am going to Capri arriving from London later in September… Last year i was over there and got really scared with taxis fiddling with the rates…thendrivers were very intimidating and i ended up paying double the price and felt awful about Naples…just cementing all the fears and stories i heard…this time i want to try The Alibus instead of the taxis outside the arrivals. And am planning to spend 1 day in Naples…do you know if i prebook are the taxi companies reliable?
    Many thanks

      Hi Alex – I’m not sure I understand your question? Are you asking about taking the Alibus or pre booking a taxi? I don’t know what your experience was last year, but the taxis at the airport are equipped with a fixed rate tariff card. As long as you indicate you want the fixed rate vice a meter rate upfront – you should be fine. I believe its € 19,00 from the Airport to the Port. On the other hand – you can very easily take the Alibus (€ 3,00 if you purchase tickets before boarding, € 4,00 on board). It only makes two stops – one at the train station and the other at the port.

  12. Divya, September 24, 2014 11:16 pm - Naples Taxis

    Hi Bonnie,
    I will be coming to Sorrento with 3 other people in October. We are going to be staying in Sorrento until Thursday and have a 630 am flight to catch out of Naples on Friday morning. The plan was to come back to Naples on Thursday night via train from Sorrento. We are debating staying in holiday Inn Napoli and taking a taxi in the morning to the airport or staying in the Millenium hotel which is right near the airport. How much is a taxi from the train station (Circumvesuviana) to Holiday Inn Napoli at around 9 pm Thursday night? And how much is a taxi at 430 am from Holiday Inn Napoli to Naples airport on a Friday morning? It would be for 4 people plus luggage. The other option is just staying in Sorrento and taking a private car for 100 euros which seems like a lot.

    I would really appreciate your help!! Thank you so much for answering all our questions.

      Hi Divya – Neither of these hotels are in the “Tourist Areas” so there are no fixed rate tariffs. I really couldn’t tell you what the meter rates would be with any certainty. You would do better to either contact a taxi company directly or check with the hotels, they should have some idea of what you should expect to pay.

      If you look at the tariff card you might be able to get an idea – at least of surcharges. Also – you will see that after 1000 pm and before 0700 am the start of journey is 6,00 euro vice 3,50.

      I would also check with both hotels to see if they have a shuttle to the airport. Last I knew the Holiday Inn did run a shuttle – I’m just not sure the hours it operates.

      Either way – I don’t think you need to spend 100 euros for a private car from Sorrento to Naples.

      Take the Alibus Airport Shuttle to the Central Station and walk from there – tickets €4,00 per person purchased on-board, €3,00 if you buy them at the Sun Store in the airport. For taxi rates – follow the link on this page to the Tariff card where you will see the fixed rate is € 16,00 from the Airport to the Central Station.

    I hope you can advise me. My family will be arriving at the Napoli Centrale on a Sunday on the early morning train from Rome during the month of July. We want to take a taxi from the train station to the Port – Molo Beverello so we can take a ferry over to Sorrento. Will we have trouble getting a taxi at the train station that early? Also, will be able to get one back from the port around 6:00 pm to take us back to the train station. Also, do we ask for a fixed tariff before we get in? I’m not sure we are too adventurous to take the public transit. Thank you. (Also is it easy to get a ferry over to Sorrento and of course back to the Port)?

      Hi Laura,
      Looking at the Tariff Card, it should be around €11 from the station to the port. There is also the Alibus, which goes directly from Piazza Garibaldi (where the train station is), to the port. There are generally always taxis outside the station, as there is a large taxi rank. There is also a taxi rank at the port.
      There are ferries to Sorrento from Naples, all the information can be found here.
      Have fun!

    We arrive at Naples airport on Wednesday morning and need to get to a hotel in Cave de Terrini. We would prefer to use a taxi but can find no fixed price for this journey.
    Is it a matter of negotiating a price with the driver or will we have to pay the meter price.
    Either way could you give me some idea of how much this is likely to cost

      Hi Wayne – Cava de’ Tirreni is 42 kms from Naples so its not surprising you haven’t found a fixed rate. Your best bet is to contact one or more of the companies here and negotiate a rate with them directly. The only other option is to take the train. I think its about an hours journey or so by train – though I’m not sure there are any direct trains.

    Hi Bonnie
    We visited Naples in Oct 2014 with friends off a cruise ship and had the most wonderful taxi driver show us around and take us to Pompei . He drove a white taxi and his name was Massimo. He was what most people imagine an Itialian man to look like tall, dark and handsome but so nice as well. He was fantastic just the best advertisement for his occupation and his country. He took us to places in Naples off the tourist route we just had the most amazing day. In June we have friends getting off a cruise ship and they would like to be able to use Massimo. Is his cab number enough for them to book him he gave it to us incase we finished in Pompei before our arranged pick up time.

      Hi Trish – that is so nice to hear and such a wonderful endorsement of Massimo and the city. As there are several taxi companies in Naples, I’m not sure whether or not that would be enough. You might try sending a few emails in advance of their trip to the companies listed above to see if you can track him down.

  19. Michele, April 19, 2015 2:43 am - Naples Taxis

    Hi Bonnie – Would like your thoughts on this. I have severe motion sickness (an elevator turns my stomach). A few years back, a taxi ride in Rome from the train station to the hotel put an end to the rest of my day’s plans. I would like to avoid that in Naples. There are two occasions I would need a taxi in Naples – airport to port and hotel to airport. I found a private driver at 2-3 cost of the fixed rate. Do you think this is worth it? Is there any way to communicate to a taxi driver that I need them to go slow? I know this sounds pathetic, but it’s a reality and I hate to take drugs and then be out of it the rest of the day.
    Thx – Michele

      Hi Michele – I wish I could be of more help, but many of the streets of Naples are cobbled stone and rough and I’m not sure there is much that can alleviate that. I think you will find the conditions similar to Rome. I suggest you try to work this out with a private driver ahead of time. Depending on where your hotel is, they may be able to use the Tangenziale for most of the ride, avoiding the city streets as much as possible.
