Where do I take a taxi from?

Editor’s Note

Confirm the fare with the driver before starting your journey. Taxis from Milan Bergamo typically use a taximeter, but it's a good idea to agree on a price in advance for longer journeys.

Useful Tips

If you have luggage, make sure the taxi has enough space to accommodate it. Some taxis may charge extra for luggage, so clarify this before you get in.
If you don't want to hit traffic congestion, avoid travelling around rush hour or on Friday evenings when people are most often travelling to Lake Garda.
It's a good idea to have your destination written down or use a map app on your phone to show the driver where you need to go if you don't speak Italian.
