I am trying to find reliable opening and closing times for tourist attractions nicely listed and described on this site for Ortygia and Siracusa for Easter weekend (04/14-04/18). Does any website have this info as I could not locate it anywhere?
I am so sorry that this site will close.... I hope that the existing content will not be removed..
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.

Sicily for five days, renting a car in Catania, driving to Piazza Armerina and Agriegento. Overnight there and visit Ragusa before dropping off the car in Catania. 2 days with Viator to Taormina and Syracuse. Are we trying to do too much? Should we forget Viator? Thanks.
We are traveling to Taormina in July and will be hiring a car. Just wondering what type of seats you need for children in Sicily (we will be traveling with a 4 and 2 year old) and if you can buy them anywhere - it possibly purchase secondhand ones?
Is there a local bus from Taormina to Savoca?

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?
I am arriving at Catania airport on Sunday 23rd Dec at 13.55, are there any suggestions as to the cheapest way I can get from the airport to Taormina? I see there are buses but they seem to be very few running on a Sunday.
I know Sicilians are generally really accommodating of children, but does anyone have any personal recommendations on places to eat with them, that’s not too expensive?
What is the cheapest and quickest way to get from Palermo to Taormina?
Will be staying in Taomina for 3-4 days . Where can I buy a SIM card and obtain a Vodafone service /data plan. ? Thank you
We're heading to Taormina at the beginning of Sept and have a 2.5 year old in tow. We'd love to go out to mount etna, so wondered if anyone had recommendations for tours that go there that are suitable when you have a toddler - i.e one that doesn't require a lot of walking
Any recommendations for other toddler-friendly activity are also welcome!
Are supermarkets open on sundays and which are the best ?

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?
What is the best way to travel from Almalfi to Taormina, Italy
I will go to Sicily next summer. Can you tell me good location? And also serious companies for an apartment on the island?
I know from Taormina you can do more day excursions then from Cefalu but I see that the hotels have a better location in Cefalu. So We are thinking of staying in Cefalu for 10 days,in May without a car, and wondered if it's possible to arrange a day trips to interesting places ( like Mount Etna, Palermo, and other interesting places from there. Does anyone know of any organised tours from Cefalu ?
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):
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.
Hi, me and my fiancé wil be travelling to Taormina next week and we thought about getting married there,just the two of us. Would that be possible ?
hi can anyone help getting from Pozallo to Milazzo by bus
Hi im arriving at Catania airport at 4.15pm midweek in September and am going to Stromboli.Can anyone tell me the best way and reasonably priced to make this transfer.
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.
Hi again, I wonder if anyone knows if there is a bus from Taormina to Castelmola?
I've bnot been able to find anything and wonder if you'd need to walk/take a taxi?

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.
I spent a delightful 3 days in Taormina last month and found a beautiful chandelier that I would like to order from a store located on Corso Umberto. I don’t have the name of the establishment and unfortunately, I’ve lost the business card and cannot contact the proprietor. I am hoping someone can provide me with the name of the store and a contact email address. Thanks
