Transport from Catania Airport to Grand Minareta Syracuse

Hi,

Could anyone advise the best method of transport from the airport to the Grand Hotel Minareta.Syracuse.

The hotel has quoted 100 euro's each way.If this is the standard fare we will consider renting a car if this is a cheaper method of transport.

Please could you advise.

Many thanks

You would appreciate a car at this location - There’s no public transport to the hotel.

Travel Catania airport to Syracuse on a Sunday:

Prego where_next_7,

Yes, you can save if you were to prearrange your transfer on your own.

The hotels runs shuttles to Siracusa, but very few per day, so plan accordingly, and the early returns means you can't enjoy dinner in Siracusa.

Buon viaggio!

Of course you could take a taxi if you were to dine in town.

Water taxi have run past seasons as well.
