I am researching a trip to rural Tuscany in the summer. It might be necessary to get taxis around. How common are taxis in Italy/Tuscany?
Here in Ireland, the taxi industry used to be highly regulated /restricted, with very few taxi licences, resulting in long waits for the taxi. I've been researching and I've found some documentation saying as of a few years ago, taxis were still very regulated and rare.
Has the situation changed in the last 5 years or so? Has there been a mass deregulation of taxis in Italy /Tuscany? Or are taxis still very rare?
