day excursions from syracuse

I am interested to see Cava grande del Cassibile and Pantalicia when visiting Syracuse and as a previous post said that there was no public transport to these places,I wonder if there are any tour agencies who go there,or what the approximate cost of a driver would be .If it is possible we would stay there longer.

Added to this - can anyone advise on good day trips that can be taken without a car, at the end of March? I'm wondering whether tour agencies will be open before Easter; if not, I guess its wherever the buses go.

Im assuming Ragusa might be a good day out? Anything else highly recommended?

Many thanks in advance.

Ciao ozvalAustralia,

Because both Cave Grande del Cassibile and Pantalica require time to trek, these destinations are not usually visited by tours.

You might consult with Boccadifuoco.

And also check with a drive in the area (Mario Ingaglia) for reliable service and very reasonable rates around Siracusa.

Ciao LuckyMermaid,

Easter generally ushers the start of the tourist season in Sicily.

You could take Interbus or the train to Catania; Interbus or AST from Siracusa to Noto; AST from Siracusa to Ragusa or Modica; and Interbus or the train to Taormina.
