    • Erice by bus

      Sicilia Oct 2, 2015 at 6:25 PM

      have been searching the various websites for bus transportation from Palermo to Erice: appears that the only way to get there by bus is to go to Trapani and then get a cable car up to the town. Is this correct,or does a bus also go up to the town? Thanks yet again, this has been the most challenging trip planning that I have ever experienced, but this website has been amazing!

      Ferry from Milazzo to Stromboli/Volcano

      Sicilia Sep 11, 2015 at 11:46 PM

      On 21.9 I'll be in Milazzo going for Stromboli. I see only two ferries, one is to early 6am approximately, the second looks to be late for us to be in time for volcano hiking (we must be on Stromboli at 4pm. Of cause we can stay another night and make a hike on the second day, but I wanted also to visit Volcano island for half a day but cannot figure out how can we doit in only two days...
      Only option I saw was using two ferry companies, Simemar from Milazzo to Volcano (9am - 10 there) and Ustica for Volcano-Stromboli at 15aprox., and the day after return to Milazzo. But I'm not sure Sinemar operates in September, at least there are no online bookings.
      Maybe anybody knows what are options?

    • From Siracusa Bus Station to Piazza Duomo

      Siracusa 15 hours ago


      I am intending to visit Siracusa from Catania with my mum who is not able to walk long distances. We thought the best means of transport from Catania to Siracusa is the Intercity Bus. My problem is that I think that the bus station in Siracusa is a bit too far from Piazza Duomo and its surroundings. will there be any taxis available near Siracusa bus station that can take us to the centro storico? If yes, do you think that they are very expensive?

    • Siracusa by day, Ortigia by night?

      Siracusa Sep 22, 2015 at 5:28 PM

      We are planning to stay 5 nights in Siracusa, doing day trips to various towns. The idea is to stay on mainland Siracusa in order to be able to get on a road easier, to spend some time on a beach (maybe sun-bathing one or two mornings) and to have our dinners and see some night life on Ortigia. Question is - is it possible/doable to get from mainland to Ortigia and back every night? Does it make sense? Are we making our life easier or more limited staying on the mainland? Please advise!

    • Palermo Airport to Cefalu

      Cefalú Sep 15, 2015 at 8:37 AM

      I am arriving at Palermo at 10.40 approx on Ryanair. Is there a Bus service to Palermo and on to Cefalu? I can get no information on the Trenitalia website. Apparently there are no trains running between the Airport and Cefalu on Sunday!!! Ronan.

      P.S. I forgot to indicate that I am arriving next Sunday.

    • Palermo to Siracusa

      Palermo Sep 29, 2015 at 7:55 PM

      Have searched the AST website but cannot get info for bus to Siracusa, only as far as Ragusa. Can anyone tell me the best way to get from Palermo to Siracusa? This will be the last leg of our trip to Sicily. We will not have a car. Thanks much, especially to "Rosata" who has provided several answers already.

    • 3 nights in eastern Sicily. Please help with itinerary :-)

      Sicilia Sep 9, 2015 at 8:16 AM

      Hi, my wife and I are flying to Catania on October 8th (arriving at 12:00 noon) and out at 8pm on October 11th. We have a rental car at the airport. We're not going for a beach holiday but also don't want to be driving for hours on end each day trying to pack in too much in 4 days. I've already left out the west coast and Palermo since the highway A19 has a massive detour and takes much longer now to drive through the country quickly.
      The sites I am interested in seeing are Cefalu, Milazzo, Taormina, Siracusa, Noto, Ragusa, Modica, Scicli.
      Mount Etna might be nice but I would prefer, due to the lack of time to see little villages.
      Is it possible to see all the towns I have listed in 4 days? Without rushing?
      Would you pick one place as a hub and make day trips to all these places or would you change hotels every night of the 3 nights we are there?
      I am open to any and all suggestions!! I look forward to your feedback
      Thanks :-))

    • parking in Milazzo and taking a ferry

      by twanje Online Now Apr 6, 2005 at 1:57 PM

      Thank you for your advice. We will rent a car and drive. Do you know if there is suitable parking in Milazzo? We will need to park our rental car for 3 days while we are out on the islands. Surely there must be many lots to park, many people probably visit the islands for the weekend and park there car near the ferry port.

    • catania to milazzo

      by twanje Online Now Apr 4, 2005 at 12:15 PM

      This May, we are flying into Catania airport and need info on how to get to Milazzo, in order to catch a hydrofoil to the Aeolian Islands. Is the bus good, or train? We are also considering renting a car at the Catania airport and driving to Milazzo, and leaving the car at a Milazzo parking lot for a few days then taking it back to Catania. We don't have much time and need to get to the Aeolian Islands quickly. Also, how is the drive from Catania to Milazzo? I hear that driving in Catania is very difficult. Perhaps the route from the airport to Milazzo is okay?
