Airport Catania bus train or transfer to Taormina

We are wanting to book a hotel or b&b in late September for 14 nights arriving at Catania airport on a Sunday lunchtime. Which is the cheapest way to get to Taormina i.e. train, local bus or pay for a coach transfer. We would welcome any information as this will be our first trip to Scily.

Welcome to Sicily jeeps5!

Interbus runs direct bus service from Aeroporto Catania to Trapani -

http://www.interbus.it/

There is no train station at Catania Fontanarossa – You would first take the AMT Alibus 457 from Fontanarossa to Catania, and then take the train from Catania Centrale to Taormina.

Taormina shares its train station with Giardini-Naxos and the station is located below Taormina on the coast near Giardini-Naxos, requiring a bus or taxi up to Taormina from the train station.

thanks for your reply we have now booked our flights and accommodation in Taormina and is it possible to book the transfers from the airport online before we travel as the euro is falling now and we would like to "get in quick" before the rate falls any lower.
