(I've done my best to translate it)
Me: Hello. Can you please take me to the Sheraton Hotel?
Cabbie: Do you prefer sherbet or gelato?
Me: I like sherbet but I prefer gelato. Straciatella [like chocolate chip] is my favorite flavor.
Cabbie: No, sherbert or gelato in the city center.
Me: Well, I hope that there are gelaterias downtown. Right now I would like to go to the Sheraton Hotel.
Cabbie: How close is it?
Me: I think that it is very close.
Two minutes and 15 euro later I was at the Sheraton.
