My husband and I are going to be traveling from Atrani (Amalfi Coast) to Palermo and we are wondering what is the best/shortest mode of transportation? I have a friend that gave me this awesome tip but am not able to find out more information of exactly how to schedule this and through what service.
Here is what he said... "there is 100% a train that goes from Naples/Amalfi Coast area straight to Sicily, I was confused whether we got off the train and onto a boat to cross over at Villa San Giovanni but the train actually pulls onto this massive cruise ship and you just stay on the train, the ship then sails 30 min and lands in Messina but all the while you stay on the train and dont have to worry about getting a separate ferry to Sicily."
Any and all help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
