Vetturino [Vettu-reeʹno]

,

in Italy, is one who for hire conveys persons about in a vetʹtura or four-wheeled carriage; the owner of a livery stable; a guide for travellers. The two latter are, of course, subsidiary meanings.

We were accosted in the steamer by a well-dressed man, who represented himself to be a vetturino”—The Times (One of the Alpine Club).
