If you're in a hurry to arrive to your destination, or if you have a lot of luggage, then taking a taxi will definitely be the best option for you.

Useful Tips

Taxi drivers will charge 4€ per person after the first 4 people in your party.
Some drivers may not speak good English. Be sure to have your address written down and to hand.
