... and we lost our momentum.
We had two bad experiences with taxis and learned not to hail a cab in Italy. You must pick up a taxi at the official rank. A rogue one took us to the wrong seaside village and charged like a bull at a gate. The BnB owner came and picked us up. He does this for guests when he can.
