3 days in sicily

Hello,

My husband and I have approximately 3 days in Sicily and need help. We are getting the ferry from Malta to sicily, arriving in Pozallo at 8.15am on Wednesday 28 April. From here we would like to make our way around to Palermo (over about 3 days) to get a ferry to Sardinia and spent 2-3 days there before getting a ferry to Rome.

Any suggestuibs for an itinerary?

We arrive in Pozzallo on Wed 28 April

Thank you!

Welcome to Sicily Louandren!

Will you hire a car or depend on public transport?

Hi Louandren, have you bought the tickets for the ferry?

Pozzallo-Palermo is over half a day travelling.

Bus Pozzallo 8:40 - 11:30 Catania airport

Bus Catania airport 12:10 - 14:40 Palermo

You could stop in Siracusa for a night and then from there (via Catania airport) go to Taormina or direct to Palermo:

Ordinarily, you could just take AST from Pozzallo to Palermo, but that bus departs Pozzallo at 7.00.

But you could take AST or the train from Pozzallo to Modica and AST from Modica to Palermo - No need to go to Catania.

Sorry Vagabonda but if Louandren can't take the Pozzallo-Palermo leaving at 7:00, the next Modica-Palermo leaves at 13:00, getting in Palermo after 17:10.

Via Catania you can get to Palermo at 14:30

You’re right – The timetables work better via Catania. And the train is even worse.

Louandren could still take the train from Pozzallo to Modica and spend a few hours in Modica, but I am suspecting that Louandren will hire a car and drive from Pozzallo via the southwest to Palermo for 3 days. Otherwise, they could fly Air Malta directly to Palermo.
