Taxi fare from Naples train station to port for Capri

We are two adults and a child with two pieces of luggage plus some hand luggage. I think the fixed price fare is 11 euros plus 1 euro for the luggage. Have I figure the cost correctly and do I still have to negotiate this before getting in the cab? I was going to print out the fare list posted on the link provided by "a Brit in ischia". We will there in June, coming straight from an overnight flight into Rome and then the train, so we will be exhausted and short on patience.

Yes, the fixed fare is 11 Euro and you must tell the driver you want that fare before the cab starts moving.

The fee is 0,50 Euro for each piece of luggage.

Yes, print out the fare list. The taxi drivers act like they have never heard of the legal limit on fares.

Oh please...

Whilst the fixed fare to Beverello is indeed 11 Euro, the timing requirement is that it MUST be requested before the driver turns on the meter.... although, when the roads are quiet, the metered fare can work out to be less!

Be prepared to stand your ground over the price, but we've sometimes had to settle at €12 or €13 when the roadworks there were at their worst.

As with all the rates in the blue section on this tariff card, that includes the charges for any luggage you may have - which only apply to 'metered' journeys, as do the other 'extras' shown over on the left:

Look further down this page....

... for examples of the receipt you should be given.

The part about requesting an approximate fare from a Naples taxi driver (and having a printed copy of the legal rate with you) has been discussed before on the boards, and I am not the ony person who posted that has been charged mcuh more than the legal rate (more than once). A pattern I have noticed in the posts is the people fluent in Italian seem to have mcuh better luck with paying the appropiate fare than those of us who are not.

You may indeed not be the only person.. but how many millions of people have used those taxis since your last visit - five years ago now, is it?
