      Transfer from Trapani Center to Trapani Airport

      Trapani Apr 7, 2014 at 2:23 PM

      I am currently considering visiting Sicily for this Summer in July. Can someone give me information about transport from the Trapani Airport to Trapani Center, because I cannot find much information.

      I know about AST Bus Service, but the flight will arrive at 23.35 in the evening, so I don't think that is viable. And still I do not know where the stages are in Trapani Center (I can use AST Buses for the return). Can anyone send me a Google Maps link where the stages in Trapani Center are please?

      And how much does a taxi (from Trapani airport to Trapani Center) for 4 people roughly cost please and at that time (23.35-40)? Thanks for any help.

The cruise ship will be arrived at 08:00 and I would like to see if anyone on this forum will be traveling alone or you need one more person to make up the numbers that you need for a tour trip to Taormina.

      privat guide in Messina

      by AlleyB Online Now Aug 18, 2012 at 10:26 PM

      My wife and I will be arriving in Messina by cruise ship in a couple of weeks. I have a little difficulty walking but with the use of a hiking stick I get around. Because I walk at a slower pace than most, large tours are not a real option for us. Can anyone recommend a private guide/driver to take us to Taormina and the nearby areas? Are there any other options that seem worthwhile? Thanks.

      This is MY anti-crowd, anti-Taormina notion -- we will be exhaustively covering Pompeii just days before.

      by gospelle Online Now May 14, 2011 at 12:39 AM

      The ship tours and almost all the Etna day tours I can find from Messina seem to go to the Silvestri spent craters and that's it. I want to go up higher and see more cool volcano stuff! There are bus tours from the North and at Sapienza in the South there are cable cars and other bus tours. These are the types of things I want to do.

      Does anyone know if such a tour is possible from Messina on about about a 7 hour max time frame? can start a tour around 10:300-11:00am and must be back by 6:00pm.

      - Corfu
      - Katakolon
