Catania airport to port

I'm arriving at the Catania airport in the morning and am renting a car to drive to the port to pick up a friend who is arriving by ferry from Naples. How much time do I need to drive from the airport to the port?

Or , are the better suggestions on how to meet up with my friend?

Thanks! L

Hi,

look up http://maps.google.it/ and seeks Via Beato Cardinale G. Catania

Within minutes you will be at the port.

If you are not used to drive in Catania and don't need to drive in the city I would suggest to use public transport.

The bus 457 (Alibus) "Central Station"-"Airport" goes past the "Port" every 20 minutes. Either you go to the port or your friend could come to the airport and then pick up the car.

If you decide to drive the above map shows the route from Port to Airport.

Heed Salvo’s suggestion not to drive in Catania, but if you were to drive, follow the coastal route from the airport to the port, but avoid driving Catania’s centre.

Though the AMT site indicates that Linee 439, 457, 522, 524 or 538 serve the port, unfortunately there’s really no (AMT) bus that actual services the port.

Call the Porto di Catania and ask (095.535888) - You will be told to take a taxi. A taxi from the airport to the port would cost 18.00 euro. A taxi from the train station to the port would cost about 10,00 to 12,00 euro.

There are several buses that stop in the vicinity of the port – AMT staff has suggested that the closest would be Linee 427 or Linee 429.

The AMT Bus Linee 427 or Linee 429….

The area around the port is not pedestrian-friendly.

But coming from the airport, the Alibus would be the most convenient, albeit not directly to the port.

There’s also a Metro station near the port.
