      Trapani (Old Town) to Segesta ruins by Public transport

      Trapani Jun 26, 2014 at 5:59 AM

      I am currently viewing the Tarantola bus schedule (I found online) for the route from Trapani to Segesta, however I am having trouble understanding this.

      Where in Trapani old town, can I catch the tarantola bus?
      Which stage should I stop for Segesta ruins please?
      And How much does the bus cost (one way or round trip)? because I can't find this data.

      Thanks a lot for any help.

      Can you please tell me if there is an airport shuttle to take me VIA SALEMI, 88 - 91100 TRAPANI or maybe there is a bus to stop me close to the hotel?

      Noto Jun 16, 2014 at 7:40 PM


      I will traveling by bus from Modica to Noto. I am staying at B&B Montandon which is far from the bus stop and is located up a hill. I am wondering if there are taxis at the bus station that I can take to the B&B.

      Thank you

      Messina's Bus Station

      Messina Yesterday

      I will be on a cruise in early September that stops in Messina, and I'm going to spend the first half of the day in Taormina and the second half of the day in Messina. It appears that the bus is a little easier and cheaper than the train for getting to Taormina, because the bus goes all the way up to Taormina (Via Pirandello, to be specific), as opposed to the train station (Taormina-Giardini) from where I'd have to pick up another bus or a taxi.

      I understand that the Messina bus terminal is located on Piazza Della Repubblica. From what I can tell, that's a big square, so can anyone please tell me in what part of that square I should wait for the bus to arrive? Is there a sign? Do many buses leave at the same time? Is it going to be difficult to figure out which bus goes to Taormina? I used Street View on Google Maps but i didn't see an obvious bus stop.
      The other question is, where do I buy tickets for the bus? Is there a kiosk somewhere, or do I just buy tickets on the bus?

      Many thanks in advance. I look forward to exploring this area of Sicily very much!

      Giardini Naxos Jul 2, 2014 at 5:32 AM

      Is there a more cost-effective way of travelling to Giardini Naxos from Comiso Airport, rather than taxi? My package holiday does not offer airport transfers, despite flying me into this airport, which I have now discovered is quite far away from the hotel. Travelling in 8 days so starting to panic!! Thank you!

      Cefalù or Taormina

      Sicilia Jun 17, 2014 at 12:37 AM

      We are planning to Sicily in September. Since the tour operators here in Belgium only go to the Cefalù - Campofelice di Roccella area and the Taormina area .What I have also seen that the hotels do not have great reviews in Sicily.But as I really want to visit the Island and visit mount Etna we have decided to come. We would like to make some daily guided excursions from it hotel. So we would definitely would what to visit Mount Etna.,The Ancient city of Syracuse & Ortigia Island.,The Southern Sicilian Baroque of Noto, Modica & Ragusa Ibla.,Agrigento Greek Temples Valley & Roman Mosaic of Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina. Does any one know what the prices would be like to these day tours?

      We would also like to visit some old towns, cultural places and natural places.

      Which area would be the best to stay at Cefalù - Campofelice di Roccella area or the Taormina area? If we wanted to visit these areas. Thanks

    • Bus transfer times from Catania Airport to Taormina

      Taormina Jun 20, 2014 at 12:57 AM

      Hello again,

      I recently put a question on this forum regarding the bus transfer and it was very kindly answered (thanks again!) and the bus website link provided.

      However, I can't seem to make much sense of the website! I'm trying to find the bus timetable from Catania Airport to Taormina/Taormina to Catania but it just won't show any times. It asks for 'date' which I click on, then then 'departure date' but when I click on this it just says 'Accesso negato!' and won't let me do anything else. I can't see what I'm doing wrong and I've tried a number of times but it just won't work.

      Does anyone know the departure times? Are they linked to the incoming and outgoing flights? I need a quite early bus back from Taormina to the Airport for an 11am flight.

      I'd be grateful if someone could help.

      Thanks again


    • No Drinking Water Trapani

      Trapani Jun 29, 2014 at 6:08 AM

      We have lived in Trapani, Sicily, for over a week now.
      One CANNOT drink the tap water. VIETATO. VERBOTEN.
      Everyone and their mother in this otherwise delightful and charming town (population 70,000+) has to schlep in drinking water.
      This is NOT the case in Palermo nor, far as I can tell, in neighboring Marsala.
      Welcome to the 21st century Trapani.
      Why has a clean drinking water system never been built here?
      Thank you.
      Yours sincerely: Thirst Visitor
