      Bus #389 from Palermo to Monreale

      by Oleg_D. Online Now May 14, 2015 at 7:26 AM

      Dear travelers and especially citizens of Palermo,

      Please, advise me, is bus #389 or 389P still transporting passengers from Piazza Indipendenza, Palermo to Cathedral at Monreale. Some people said me that this bus brings passengers only to foot of the hill but not transports to center of Monreale anymore. What is the real situation with that bus? Thank you in advance.

      Sincerely, Oleg

      Hi,

      We will be visiting Sicily beginning of August and we would like to visit a fisherman's village in the Palermo region; this would be followed by a nice fresh seafood meal in some nearby restaurant! Can you suggest any places?

      Also, could you suggest any nice beach which is not normally so busy(such as Cefalu')?

      Thank you for your time!

      public transportation from Palermo to Selinunte

      by ohaiyo Online Now Apr 20, 2014 at 9:32 PM

      Hi,

      I am wondering if there is public transportation from Palermo to Selinunte. I found a posting from 2006 that states one can take the SALEMI Bus Lines service to Castelvetrano (100 minutes) and then transfer to a local Salemi orange mini-bus (25 minutes) to the Selinunte archeological site. The posting said that I could buy the Palermo to Castelvetrano round trip bus ticket a the Salemi lines ticket office on Via Balsamo and then purchase the ticket to Selinunte directly on the local bus.

      However, this posting was in 2006 and I will be going in late September. I am wondering if the information is still current.

      Thank you

      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.
