Palermo-Agrigento-Syracusa

Is it possible to take public transportation from Palermo to Agrigento and from Agrigento to Siracusa or will we need to rent a car?

It is possible by public transportation.

Trains and buses run between Palermo and Agrigento, Agrigento and Siracusa.

Check train schedules on Trenitalia.

Cuffaro runs buses between Palermo and Agrigento.

There is no direct bus route between Agrigento and Siracusa.

Take SAIS from Agrigento to the Catania airport and Interbus from the airport to Siracusa.

Interbus:

Thanks Vagabond. One follow-up question.

Do the bus companies have web pages in English? I don't seem to be able to find that so I'm having some difficulty.

No, sorry. The bus websites are usually in Italian.

I did notice that the Cuffaro site is in English – very unusual.

For SAIS:

Scegli la città di partenza: town your are leaving

Scegli la città di destinazione: your destination

Then click on Ricerca. ANDATA: going

For Interbus:

Click on Ricerca Orari; on the drop down menu for Inseresci la citta di Partenza, click on Catania;on the drop down menu for Inseresci la citta di arrivo, click on Siracusa; on the drop down menu for Tutti gli orari, click on the time desired; Tutti giorni are the days of the week (it begins with Lunedi – Monday); click on vai – GO and you will have the entire schedule! The day of the week is important, because schedules change on weekends.

Vagabonda:

Thank you very much for the good Agrigento-Siracusa travel infroamtion. I'm inclined to floow your advice about taking the bus to Catania airport and then catching another bus to Siracusa.

What I'm having trouble finding out is how long it takes to go from Agrigento to the Catania airport.

The schedlue I access online, in Italian, seems to provide only departure times.

Any help you can offer would be most appreciated.

Agrigento to the Catania airport by bus would take around 3 hours.
