How to get from Catania to Ramacca

Hi, We have a friend who wants to travel from Catania to Ramacca for the day to see where his parents were born. What is the best mode of transport? Can it be done in a day? How long will it take? Thanks for your help

Although AST runs bus service between Catania and Ramacca, you might prearrange a driver for the day, since the return to Catania is rather early in the day (14.55).

Prego jagalea,

Will your friend base in Catania, or visit one day on a cruise?

My friend will fly in from Venice and then probably use the train to get to Gioia Tauro where other relatives come from. He will arrive on the first day late in the afternoon but he has only a few days in Sicily. Will just need to work out whether to stay in Catania the first night, travel to Ramacca and stay overnight for the second then back to Catania on the third day to see some of the city then move on day 4. Did you have any other ideas?

In case that wasn't very clear, he will arrive from Venice and stay in Sicily for a few days, then move on to Gioia Tauro. Thanks

Just another question on catching this bus. Where in Catania do you catch the bus for Ramacca? Is it from the train station or somewhere else?
