transfer from Giardini Naxos to Pozallo

I appreciate all the good advice I have gotten so far, especially in the Malta forums. Now it appears that I will need to get from Giardini de Naxos to Pozallo to catch the 15:30 ferry to Malta on Sunday, June 26. I would love some advice as to how to do this! Would hiring a car be better than figuring out transfers, and maybe be less expensive?? Thank you!

Ciao wish2go3,

VirtuFerries runs transfers from Catania to Pozzallo but they are expensive (196,00 euro).

virtuferries.com/…

Consider Viaggi Vicino e Lontano for very reasonable transfer rates….

Sundays is a difficult travel day to Pozzallo – There’s no train service.

You could take Interbus from Giardini to Catania’s airport (Aeroporto Catania), and take AST from the airport to Pozzallo - The first AST bus would arrive in Pozzallo at 14.10. Check “Domenica” and “Festivo” for Sunday schedules.

Buses arrive in Pozzallo’s town centre at Piazza della Rimembranza on Corso Vittorio Vento about 3km, a 20-30-minute (flat) walk along Pozzallo’s lungomare to Banchina di Riva where the ferry departs Pozzallo for Malta.

Many car rental agencies are closed on Sundays in Sicily.

Since Hertz is located at Pozzallo’s port, you should consider Herta – Hire through AutoEuropeUK for the lowest rates. AutoEurope is a broker dealing with all suppliers.

Hertz at Pozzallo’s port is open from 8.00-10.00 and from 19.00-22.00 on Sundays. Hertz at Catania’s airport is open every day of the week from 8.00 to 23.59.

Why not fly Air Malta from Catania to Malta? The flight is fast and reasonably priced.

Or take the catamaran from Catania to Malta.

thank you, Vagabonda, this is all terrific information. We have considered flying, but don't want to arrive so late - there only seems to be one flight, which arrives very late. We may try to catch a flight the night before, but it might not be possible as I am singing in a concert that Saturday night. I was really looking forward to the ferry, but getting to Pozallo is challenging. We'll get there one way or the other! Thanks again!

Prego wish2go3,

Consider that you will waste an entire day getting to Pozzallo and that the cost to Pozzallo would be significantly more expensive than the Air Malta flight - The flight would cost less than 50,00 euro including taxes.

Why not take the catamaran from Catania?
