Return transfer from Villa Ducale Taormina to Milazzo Port

Hi Vagabonda!

I would appreciate your advice once again with the most cost effective way to travel from villa Ducale to Milazzo Port (return) as we would like to do the 4 Islands tour with Tarnav. The tour leaves at 9am and returns to Milazzo at 10.45pm.

The quote from New Travel Services was 210 euro which sounds expensive! How far away is the Port? Hoping you can help! Thanks in advance.

Due to the tour time, you need a private transfer (unless you want to stay in Milazzo the night before). That said, the quote from NTS seems quite reasonable. It's almost an hour by car..

Hi Wonderwoman82,

Yes, that rate is reasonable for a return transfer, especially considering the late return.

Milazzo is about an hour and a quarter from Taormina.

Tarnav also provides transfer services, you could ask for a quote mentioning that you want to have a tour with them

Unfortunately Tarnav only runs transfer services between Catania and Milazzo - There aren't any services between Taormina and Milazzo - Missed opportunity for sure!

Thanks once again for all your help!

I saw on another post that there are tours with SAT.

Departs Taormina at 10am to Milazzo and then a boat to visit Panarea and Stromboli for 90 euro and if you book online there is a 10% discount...do you recommend this tour? Return is at midnight.

Should we book in advance or wait until we arrive?

The SAT tours are generally well reviewed Wonderwoman82, and it’s very convenient to depart directly from Taormina with transport included, but some have reported crowded boats. You can read the reviews and SAT’s response.

If you decide to take the tour, contact SAT in advance and notify of your interest, but perhaps wait to book on arrival so you can check weather conditions.
