According to Michelin, Salerno to Catania is about a 6 1/2 hour drive. That's the only question I know about. Caio..

IKea is due to open in Catania in December, 2010 but it may be delayed....

There are no IKEA deliveries to Sicily.

Ciao 4lovinitaly

There's a chance - You’ll see signs advertising IKEA in Sicily, but that’s about it for now....



For now, shop at Conforama at Melilli between Siracusa and Catania.



And since half the autostrada between Salerno and Reggio is currently under construction with only one lane, allow 8-10 hours for the drive.

They'll get there, I'm sure. Ours took a little longer than was planned but it's been going for several years now - Naples that is, not Ischia!

From here there are weekly coach trips in winter, and local transport firms arrange delivery for those who prefer not to pay the rather high surcharge Ikea make for crossing the water.

I remember getting all the parts - handles, hinges and the like - for our London kitchen took about 6 visits in all, something I'd prefer not to try here!
