I shall be in Taormina in the middle of October. How often do buses go to Taormina from Catania? I have searched on the internet and it seems that last bus is 19.45pm.It means I have to wait for two hours.

Is there any opportunity except hiring a taxi? Is it possible sharing a taxi with other passengers? I shall be solo traveller and I want to make sure before I go.

I shall be very appreciated if you help me.
Thanks,

Özlem from Istanbul

Transport from Catania airport to Taormina  (5 Answers)

I am arriving at Catania airport on Sunday Dec 27th at 13.55 but there seems to be very few buses going direct from Catania airport to Taormina on a Sunday.The earliest after I arrive is apparently at 16.00. Can you tell me if one can book a ticket in advance for these buses so as to ensure one has a seat on the bus? Also do these buses have a place where one can stow away luggage?

Worth a visit or not?  (3 Answers)

I'm travelling with friends to Eastern Sicily on Wednesday 13th May. We have a pretty tight itinerary as we are only staying for 4 nights. However, we have one free day at the moment, and are considering a trip to Savoca - we do have a rental vehicle. Does anybody have any knowledge of Savoca - particularly somewhere that 7 of us could have a relaxing lunch?

Picture of a specific location  (16 Answers)

Hello,

About 10 years ago during our fantastic stay in Taormina, I asked my wife to marry me on a view terrace at sunset. Needless to say she said yes (the setting must have been the final push) and I presented the (way too small) engagement ring. 7 years later we got married (in 1 metre of snow) and I would really like to give my wife a special gift that reminds her of that spot.
I would like to print a picture of that terrace during a cloudless sunset (or anything near that) with part of the fence in the picture. Of course I didnt have my camera with me during that evening, so maybe someone from this forum can help us out.

I have made some prints of the exact spot where I said goodbye to my freedom, maybe they can help determine the location.
View from google maps (not good enough to print sadly):

Satelite view:

Large map:

Zoomed map:

If anyone can help me then I would be thrilled, I know my request is very specific but anything is better that the crooked streetview picture.
Thanks for reading this and a big thanks for any help you can give me.

Bus transfer times from Catania Airport to Taormina  (9 Answers)

Hello again,

I recently put a question on this forum regarding the bus transfer and it was very kindly answered (thanks again!) and the bus website link provided.

However, I can't seem to make much sense of the website! I'm trying to find the bus timetable from Catania Airport to Taormina/Taormina to Catania but it just won't show any times. It asks for 'date' which I click on, then then 'departure date' but when I click on this it just says 'Accesso negato!' and won't let me do anything else. I can't see what I'm doing wrong and I've tried a number of times but it just won't work.

Does anyone know the departure times? Are they linked to the incoming and outgoing flights? I need a quite early bus back from Taormina to the Airport for an 11am flight.

I'd be grateful if someone could help.

Thanks again

Beth

Bus transfer from Catania airport to Taormina  (5 Answers)

Hi, could anyone help with the transfer from Catania airport to Taormina bus transfer.

I need to know whether the road is relatively straight, ie, is it a motorway / straight A road or is it tiny little winding roads. I need to know as my friend suffers from very bad travel sickness and if the road is rather windy we'll probably take the train instead.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks
