      We would like to hire a driver to meet us at the ferry and take us to a market, Monreale and then the airport where we will pick up a rental car and head out of town. I've read not to drive in Palermo. Any recommendations for a trustworthy car and driver for a half-day of sightseeing?

      logistics on getting around Sciliy

      by ohaiyo Online Now Oct 28, 2013 at 4:54 PM

      I am planning a two week vacation in Sicily in early October next year. I am reluctant to drive in a foregin country so I am more inclined taking the train or the bus. My priliminary itinerary is Palermo, Catania, Messina, Syracuse, Monreale, Ragusa, Modica, Agrigento, and Trapani. It is probably too ambitious for only two weeks. I need to know how to get around Sicily connecting these places by either train or bus. Any suggestions are welcome.
      Thank you

    • Car hire at the airport

      by missioncontrol Online Now May 20, 2013 at 5:38 AM

      have read many horror stories online of car hire in Sicily and so wanted to choose more reputable brands such as Avis or Hertz. However we need a 6 seater and the only operators to offer those at Palermo Airport are Thrifty or Maggiore both of whom have some awful reviews - anyone out there recently hired with Thrifty or Maggiore at Palermo airport - what was your experience?
      Many thanks

    • FLying to Palermo in October - questions!!!

      by MilesOfEight Online Now Sep 7, 2012 at 12:48 AM

      Hello everyone!!

      This, 7.10 - 14.10 will be my 4th visit to Italy. We'are young couple, arriving at Palermo airport on Sunday, OCT 7th at 21:30

      We have several plans:

      1) To spend couple days on the beach in order to swim and enjoy the meditarranean Sea( It's possible in Turkey in October so I assume it's also possible in Sicily since they lie on the same distance from equator)

      2) To enjoy nightlife of Big City ( Palermo)

      3) A trip to ETNA

      4) Visit other smaller beatiful Italian cities and towns.

      The first point is very important!!! While the second is less important!

      What would be a-not-really expensive way to plan our trip?

      Is it better to hire a car ( 120 EUR / 6 days if we're talking about A-class) or use public transport?

      Where to stay, and where can we find a decent beach that would be secure. ( I googled there are plenty of public beaches few kilometers from Palermo, but which are the best? )

      How to plan a trip to Etna, is it better to go by car, or bus ( or excursion) does this trip include visiting the crater?

      Which cities in Sicily would you recommend us to visit (we have just very basic knowledge of Sicilian history )\

      Thank you in advance!!!

      Traveling between Airport and City Center

      by MStars Online Now Jul 20, 2012 at 9:15 PM

      Hello, my group of 6 will be flying into Palermo, arriving around 10 o clock at night. Our departing flight from Palermo back to the mainland is at 7 o clock in the morning. I figure we should stay in an area that has easy access to the airport, but I'd also like to still stay somewhere pleasant and safe.

      I vaguely remember being able to take the train from the airport to the town center, but that was 10 years ago.

      Can anyone suggest the best area to stay in that would be easiest to get to & from the airport?

      Would we be able to travel from downtown Palermo so early in the morning to catch our flight?

      Thank you in advance!
