Taxi from Palermo airport

I expect to arrive at the Palermo airport early afternoon next Monday, and am wondering about the best way to get a taxi (if there are FAQS here I don't see them) to my apartment. Is the best thing to do just go out to the taxi rank near arrivals (as described in this forum)? Do they run meters or are there set fares for various parts of the centro storico (I will be staying in the Kalsa district on via Butera)? Or, is it better to pre-book a car service?

Note that while I have seen many posts about the convenience of the airport bus, I really want door-to-door service after a transatlantic flight and a Rome connection.

Thanks....

Hi ItalophileNJ,

There’s no need for a car service - You can go out to the taxi rank near Arrivals or you could pre-book your taxi. There are set fares, so expect to pay €40-45.

Prego ItalophileNJ – My pleasure!

So how are things progressing? Are you onto the last-minute things, or still doing those things before one does the last-minute things?
