Transport Catania Airport to Milazzo

We land at Catania airport 18.00 on Friday 17th October. Reading recent posts it looks as though we will miss the last bus direct from airport to Milazzo. Is the best option to bus it from airport to Messina and then train Messina to Milazzo? If so, how long is the bus journey from Catania airport to Messina and how far is the station from the bus stop in Messina? We plan to stay overnight in Milazzo and then get the ferry to Salina following day.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

The Giuntabus service to Milazzo stops at the end of September.

Take the bus from the airport to Messina. Journey time is about 2 hours. http://www.saisautolinee.it/ricerca/index.asp

The ideal way to continue to Milazzo would be by bus, but the last bus is at about 19:00 and landina at 18:00 you won't be able to take. The last train is at about 21:00, you could take that and then a taxi from the station to the hotel.

If you arrive in Messina after 21:00, you could stay there for the night and travel to Milazzo the next day.

You are welcome. Just to give you an idea: with the current timetable there are buses from the airport to Messina at 18:10 19:30 20:45. The last bus from Messina to Milazzo is at 18:30 while the last train at about 21:00 By the way, check the schedules later on as they will be updated.

There are several hotels near the train station tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187889-i2142-k504…

If you want to do that, you could book a private trasnfer, Eolian Shuttle ( http://www.eolianshuttle.tarnav.it/en/ ) or another, but of course it's more expensive than travelling by public transport
