Hi me and my husband are going to Sicily in September, flying into Catania and staying at Des Etrangers Hotel Ortigia Siracusa,does anybody know if a taxi would be expensive? Or is there any other alternatives.

Welcome to Sicily Sujon289!

A taxi at the airport would be very expensive – Prearrange your transfer prior to your arrival, €60.

Siracusa Taxi di Sandro Rubino:

Interbus or AST run direct bus service from Aeroporto Catania to Siracusa.

Then take a taxi (€10) or the shuttle (Linea 20) from Siracusa’s bus station on Mainland Siracusa onward to Ortigia.

Truly my pleasure Sujon289!

Ortigia is magical - Wander Ortigia’s ancient narrow streets, walk the island’s periphery, enjoy the evening passeggiata on the Lungomare and sunsets over the sea. Siracusa is a “real” place where locals go about daily life. Explore the Fonte Aretusa, the Tempio di Apollo, the Castello Maniace, Piazza Archimede, the Mikvah located under Hotel alla Giudecca....

Ortigia’s piazza di Duomo is one of the most beautiful squares in Italy! Caravaggio's 'Burial of St Lucy' is housed in the Chiesa di Santa Lucia alla Badia. Visit the Ipogeo di Piazza del Duomo, the network of passages used as a bomb shelter during WWII.

Take a boat around the island and out to the sea caves on Siracusa's mainland....
