Priola

Looking to make a trip to Priola, Sicily in the Province of Syracuse. I want to make this a day trip by going on a commercial cruise line. The problem becomes there are few cruise lines that go there and can this be done as a day trip from the port of Syracuse? Any information would be helpful.

Sicily, Italy

Hi,

From the port of Siracusa, you are only about 20 to 30 minutes from Priola by car. Priola is the industrial area where the oil refineries are located. Hope that helps.

Welcome to Sicily cruiser1013!

Assuming you intend to visit Priola because it’s your ancestral town!

Thanks so much for your response. Yes it's because of it being my ancestral town, working on that bucket list. Is Siracusa a better port than Messina? I know Siracusa is closer but Messina has more cruise ship stops. What is a fair price for hiring a driver?

Prego cruiser1013,

Siracusa is much nearer Priola than Messina – You could then enjoy the time saved in transport in Priola or Siracusa.

The rate would depend on whether it was a return trip, how much time the driver would spend with you in Priola....

You might also contact Christian at New Travel Service – Christian is wonderful with ancestry visits, and you can Skype (or email) him directly for a prompt response.
