Welcome to Sicily iquB!

You would think with such close proximity to Palermo’s airport, Balestrate would have easy public transport options to and from the airport, but there aren’t any.

There is no direct public transport from Palermo’s airport to Balestrate.

You might consider a private transfer.

You would be required to take the airport bus from the airport to Palermo, and bus back to Balestrate from Palermo on Russo.

Autoservizi Russo:

You could also take the train from Palermo to Balestrate.

Trenitalia:

You could take the Russo bus to Lo Zingaro, but Segesta, Selinunte and Erice are Western Sicily's top sights.

Ciao iquB,

It’s always more expensive to take a taxi than hire a private transfer.

Expect to pay 70,00 for a taxi from the airport in Palermo to Balestrate.

You could arrange a private transfer with Sim Sala Bim (40,00 euro) or Jumbo Viaggi (35,00-45,00 euro) in Balestrate for less.

Sim Sala Bim:

091.8786781

Jumbo Viaggi:

Check the Russo schedule on the website here – No need to book in advance.

Take the train from Balestrate to Trapani and the AST bus from Trapani to Erice.

www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp…

Trapani/Erice (via Valderice e via Martogna)

aziendasicilianatrasporti.it/opencms/opencms…

Take Russo from Balestrate to Castellammare del Golfo and Tarantola from Castellammare del Golfo to Segesta.

http://www.tarantolabus.com/wordpress/orari/

Take the train from Balestrate to Castelvetrano and Salemi from Castelvetrano to Selinunte.
