Sim Card Purchase at Catania Airport

Hi,

Sure this is going to be the first of many questions as I think of them so sorry in advance!

Our first stop in Sicily is Catania Airport where we are hiring a car and driving straight to Siracusa/Ortigia.

We intend coming with our own phone, Will we be able to purchase a sim card at the airport or will it be better in Siracusa or Ortigia.

Grazie

Robyn

Catania's TI has reported that it is not possible to purchase a SIM card at the airport, only Catania's city centre.

To Vagab,

What would I do in Sicily without you????????

We are flying from Johannesburg/ London directly to Catania so no, not Rome.

Will get it in Siracusa .Are the stores open Sunday and what time do they close?
