      public transportation from Palermo to Selinunte

      Palermo Apr 20, 2014 at 9:32 PM


      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

      I plan to travel by public bus from Modica to Ragusa on October 6, Monday, for a day trip and then returning to Modica for the night. I will then travel by public bus from Modica to Noto on October 7, Tuesday, but I will spend the night in Noto before heading to Catania by public bus the next day.

      I have heard that public transportation in the southeast of Sicily is sporadic and not reliable. I am wondering if public transportation between those towns are possible for those dates.

      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.

      In the beginning of October we will have to get from Taormina to Palermo airport by 3pm.
      Can anyone suggest the best way to get there (convenient and not too expensive)? We are two couples. The possible options I see are:
      - Taxi -might be too expensive (how much?)
      - bus or train - no direct one, they might require more than two transfers
      - rent a car - will need to rent with different drop off location, can I rent it in Taormina or I will need to travel to Catania airport to pick up the car on the day before departure, then park it somewhere in Taormina? And after all this hassle, how the roads are to Palermo. Is it reliable option to drive up there to get on time?
