taxis in florence

Irealise that some taxi drivers are a law unto themselves

and see tourists as fair game.

However what should a taxi cost me from train station to

San Gallo hotel via Lorenzo Magnifico.

Should the taxi have a meter.

Any useful italian phrases welcome.

I dont mean to sound negative just want to avoid

any ripoff.

Your taxi should have a meter. If it has not, do not use it.

They are entitled to a small extra charge for items of baggage and for trips on holidays and Sundays. Tips should be c. 5 - 10% depending on how pleasant and helpful the driver may be.

Taxi in Florence are white and you find them next to train station exit. They have a meter and they had an extra quote for your luggage about 5% and during the night .

From The station to San Gallo hotel it should about 10 Euro.
