When travelling recently to Rome, I was approached at the arrivals exit of the Fumicino airport by a gentleman wearing a "TAXI" badge around his neck. There were a few more - plainly visible.
I normally go straight to the taxi lane but they were just in front of it and seemed to orchestrate the taxi operations (which happens at some airports and I have not landed in Rome for some time so I could not remember if this was the case over there)
He was not with the official taxi lane - we walked to a car in the parking lot. I am used to all kind of taxi scams at airports so I asked for the price to city center - 60 EUR.
Taken into account the travel time (~1 hour), the price seemed reasonable. the car was nice as well.
Coming back the same day in the evening through the same route with UBER, I paid 70 EUR - close to the price of the transfer above.
My question is: are these "TAXI" operations legal? They do not rip-off travelers so I have (positive) doubts.
