Transfer from Catania airport to Hilton Giardini Naxos

Hi All,

I'm Arriving into Catania Airport at 19:20.

What's the best way to get from the airport to Giardini Naxos. I see the last bus leaves at 19:45 will I have enough time to get to the bus or is there a better option, train, taxi .....

Thanks

Neil

Welcome to Sicily griffosligo!

When?

Train schedules update on 8 June.

www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp…

Unfortunately you may not arrive in time for the last train as well – You would take the Alibus from the airport to Catania’s train station (20-30 minutes), and the last train would depart Catania for Guardini Naxos at 20.46.

Taxis are significantly more expensive than a prearranged transfer -

Hi Vagabonda

Thanks for the reply,

Im arriving in on the 12th of June, I think my best bet is to organise a return transfer from the airport to the hilton. Im looking for the cheapest one available. would you have any recommendations on transfer hire?

Prego Neil,

Contact Christian at New Travel Services for reliable service and reasonable rates.

Claudio at Sicily Limousine Services is based in Giardini, so also worth contacting.

I will be arriving in Catania tomorrow morning around 10am and am looking for my cheapest option/easiest way for getting to the Hilton Giardini Naxos. I tried to use the website provided for the trains but couldn't find which stops to use for checking on times and tickets. I truly appreciate any help anyone could lend.

Welcome to Sicily 406mtechdigger!

The Hiton Giardini Naxos is located in the Recanti section of Giardini, so take Interbus from Catania or Aeroporto Catania to Recanati.

http://www.interbus.it/

Under “Data/date” (departure date), enter tomorrow’s date; under “Partenza/departure” (the town you will be departing), scroll down to and click on Catania or Aeroporto Catania if arriving at the airport; under Arrivo/Arrival (your destination town), scroll down to and click on Recanati; click on “Ho letto e accetto le condizioni per l'utilizzo del servizio web”; then click on “Cerca” for schedules.

Click on the information symbol, to retrieve schedules, connections, stops, duration, connection time, cost, and bus companies – Etna Trasporti.

Best wishes!

Vagabonda

Thank you very much for your help Vagabonda. I believe I have found 10:45 bus that I can take if I am able to make it on time. If not I will wait and catch the next bus at 11:45.

Prego 406mtechdigger,

So you're arriving at the airport - Perhaps, depending on whether your flight arrives on time and you collect your luggage and clear Customs.

Be sure to validate your ticket on the bus!

Buon viaggio!
