Uber Banned in Italy

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

You will need to find another way from the airport to your hotel in Italy this summer, as the country becomes the first in Europe to ban Uber. A lawsuit filed by the country’s taxi associations reached a ruling that the transportation company, available through smartphone applications, unfairly competes with the taxi services of the country.

Uber plans to appeal the ruling, but travelers to Italy in the coming months will need to secure transportation through other avenues.
