bus transportation questions

Where can I get a bus schedule (English version) for day trips from Castellammare del Golfo to Palermo; Castelammare del Golfo to Erice and a bus schedule from Aci Trezza (or Catania) to Siracuse?

Castellammare isn't an optimal base without a car, Trapani would be the best base in the area.


To go to Erice, you would reach Trapani first, by bus


Catania to Siracusa:


St Paul, MN

Castellammare is not a good base without a car. I stayed there for 2 weeks in Feb 2010 with my rental car. There is bus transport to Palermo, Palermo airport, Zingaro Nature Preserve (in season), and Trapani. Otherwise you have to go to Palermo or Trapani to get anywhere else

Bus schedules are typically not translated into English, and the Italian version would always provide the most updated and current schedules.

Castellammare del Golfo is served by Russo bus service between Palermo and San Vito Lo Capo; AST bus service to Trapani; Tarantola bus service to Segesta; and Trenitalia service, but the train station is inconveniently located outside town requiring a bus to the station.

There is no direct bus transport to Palermo's airport, and Sundays are especially challenging, since the shuttle to the train station doesn't run on Sundays.

You could take the AST bus from Trapani ot Erice, or the funivia.


Take AMT 534 from Acitrezza to Catania.




And then take Interbus, or the train from Catania to Siracusa.
