Catania airport to Siracusa

Hi - we're about to set off to Sicily (yippee!). Arriving at 18.55 at Catania on a Saturday night. I believe a bus will be available to take us to Siracusa (?) and think then a taxi might be the best bet to get to our hotel? Grand Hotel Minaretto, Via Del Faro Massolivieri.

Can anyone shed any light, does this sound right?

Thanks, Hilary

Welcome to Sicily Hilarypony!

Yes, Interbus runs the direct bus service from Aeroporto Catania to Siracusa – The last bus would depart the airport at 20.10.

Ask your hotel to arrange a transfer for you from the bus station!

Buon viaggio!

We are planning the exact same trip! Landing in Catania on May 8, 2013. We are staying in the Hotel Minareto as well. How did you like your trip? I would love to hear your review of the hotel and find out what beaches or activities you enjoyed. How did the bus system and shuttle service work for you???

Or you could hire a company based here in Sicily and save significantly on the transfer - Catania airport-Siracusa € 70,00 instead of the 111.00€ rate quoted for the recommendation in #5.
