arriving in Catania at 20.00

Hi, I am arriving in Catania at 20.00 on a friday evening. Is there any bus service down toward Syracuse or would a taxi be the only option? we are staying in Fontane Bianche.

thanks

Daniel

Ciao Daniel D,

The last Interbus service departs the airport at 20.10.

You might take the AMT Alibus 457 from the airport to Catania, and then take the train from Catania to Siracusa – The last train departs Catania at 21.16.

AST runs the (local) urbano bus service between Siracusa and Fontane Bianche, but you will arrive too late for the bus service, so arrange a transfer from Siracusa to Fontane Bianche, 30 EUR.

Thanks Vagabonda for all your help,

fly out to Catania on Friday and staying just south of Siracusa for a week. very much looking forward to it.

one last question.... you wouldn't know of any tours to the valley of the temples from Siracusa would you? would love to see them and are considering hiring a car but if their are tours it may be an easier way of doing it.

regards

Daniel

Prego Daniel D,

Siracusa isn’t a typical base or excursions to Agrigento’s Valley of the Temples – Hire the car for the day, and enjoy one of the world’s most phenomenal Greek sites.

Thank you Vagabonda,

I had a feeling you may say that. Desperate to see them so will almost certainly hire the car!
