Driving to Taroamina

Is there a reason you never see directions from Palermo to Taroamina using the coastline? I would think it would be quicker and more scenic. Thanks, Barb

The interior route is the preferred route - The coastal route isn't exactly along the coast but a bit inland, and although scenic in spots, not overly scenic, and this autostrada has many tunnels that occasionally close resulting in time-costing detours up through the mountains.

Check driving routes and more realistic driving times on the ViaMichelin website.

I think I would be correct if I said, 'If you were a Sicilian, you would take the interior route.' Also, when I took that route, I thought the scenery was lovely!
