Best way to get to Taormina from Messina

We are arriving in Messina at 10:00 and leaving at 18:00. Been to Mt Etna previously and briefly saw TAORMINA, thought this time to spend the whole day there. Car rental doesn't work sinse we are there on a Saturday, trains appear to be fully booked. Is a bus a good choice? Is it close to the pier, where can i find a schedule? Any other suggestions for what to do in Messina? THANKS LOADS.

Messina has many fine seafood restraunts if that's your thing. It is a nice place to spend a day looking at the shops. At midday there's a church tower with a beautiful display and music. I would think getting. Bu to toaromina would actually be the quickest way to get there.

Welcome to Sicily briocoffee!

That isn’t very much time to venture too far from Messina via public transport - Messina: Messina to Taormina:


If you were to venture from Messina, consider the ship’s transport or prearrange a driver.
