Taxi and Car rental 

Taxis are also available at the airport. The taxi fare from Airport to Giardini Naxos is fixed by the municipality in 80 Euro (per car, so sharing the car is very convenient). Note that no extra charge is needed for night service and luggage.
We recommend that you check the official taxi fares that are indicated at the taxi parking place and that you explicity ask the taxi driver how much you will be charged.
