Catania to Calabria

Planning a trip this summer to Sicily flying into Catania and would like to visit Calabria. Can anyone tell me how we get from Catania to Calabria and how long this would take?

If you were to drive, Catania is 115 km from Reggio di Calabria and it would take just under two hours to drive.

Check all driving routes, maps and estimated driving times and distances on ViaMichelin.

ViaMichelin:

You could also take the train from Catania to Reggio di Calabria - 3-4 hours each way.

Trenitalia:

You could also take Interbus from Catania to Messina.

Or more frequent bus service on SAIS from Catania’s airport to Messina – 01h35:

Then ferry from Messina to Reggio di Calabria on Meridiano.

Prego!

If you were to take the train, rail from Catania to Messina Centrale. You could ferry on foot to Villa San Giovanni. From Messina’s station, turn right when you exit, and you’ll see the ferries, about 400 metres. With a Calabria destination on your train ticket, your train ticket will be valid on the ferry. From Villa, you can rail to Reggio or any other destination in Calabria.

Caronte runs ferries from Messina to Villa San Giovanni.
