Mondello beach by bus from Quattro Canti

I'm going to Palermo this April. So looking forward to it : )

While I'm in Palermo, I'd very much love to visit Mondello beach.

Is there any bus to Mondello beach from Quattro Canti area ?

If there is, where is the bus stop ?

Also can I swim in April ? Or maybe it's not hot / warm enough to swim ?

I much appreciate any advice. Thank you !

Not exactly from Quattro Canti. you should walk either to via Roma (very near) and take 101 bus to piazza Don Sturzo/via Libertà, where you can take 806 bus to Mondello. Buy tickets in newsagents/tobacco shops and stamp the ticket when on board, it's valid 90 minutes (since stamped) on every other urban bus, and it costs 1 euro 30 cents.

But april is very early for swimming, usually the water isn't warm enough.

Ciao elstorm,

April is prior to Sicily’s swim and beach season. If it’s a warm and sunny day, you could enjoy a walk on the beach and sunbathing, but otherwise, you might find better use for your time.

Perhaps consider going to Cefalù – Cefalù has a beach, but also a town, and a charming historic centre.

Cefalu or Mondello?:

Take AMAT 806 to Mondello. Enter "806" and click on "cerca".

Dear Biondo,

thank you for your reply. Very useful tip !

I guess I'd better to give up swim in the sea in April, but definitely strolling shore : )

Once again, thanks !

best regards,

Ciao Vagabonda,

Thank you for your reply ! It's very useful.

Yes, it sounds it's not going to hot enough to swim. however, I still love to visit there. Maybe I can stroll the area, if I'm lucky I can sunbathing : )

I might to visit Cefalu as you suggested.

Once again thank you for great tips.

Prego elstorm,

The beaches are delightful if it’s sunny and warm, even if the seas are too cold for swimming.

But Cefalù’s historic centre and phenomenal Norman Duomo is an additional bonus!

You would find good restaurants in Mondello.

Cefalù has many seaside trattoire that are delightful as well.

Enjoy!

Hi There,

we're near the Politeama and want to go to Mondello on a Sunday. does the 806 run on Sundays and what time is the last bus back to Palermo. I've tried the bus website but it doesn't say.

Grazie,

Quatro Canti is a walking distance to Politeama (15 mins max).

Then 806 from Politeama (via Liberta).

806 runs on Sundays and holidays, every 30 mins until 10 pm if I remember well.

There is a timetable on AMAT website but it doesn't give the exact times from particular stops. Just assume you'll wait a bit.

Mondello is a nice place to even go for a walk on the beach and a lunch in one of the restaurants.

Cefalu village is charming and worth a day trip.
