Catania to Etna to Milazzo

Hi,

I'm wondering if there's any possibility to travel from Catania to Etna by train and later on continue our journey to Milazzo (final destination Lipari Islands)? If it is, is there any possibility to do this during one day or is it preferable to do it separately?

I'm looking forward for a respond from any of you!

Regards,

Tim

Welcome to Sicily TimAkesson!

There is no train service to Etna.

The only public transport to Etna is the AST bus from Catania to Etna's Rifugio Sapienza via Nicolosi.

You would return to Catania in the evening.

You could then take a train from Catania to Milazzo, but then you would arrive in Milazzo quite late for a crossing to the Aeolians.

You might find it more preferable to do this separately.

Take the direct Giuntabus service from Catania's airport to Milazzo's port.

Hi Vagabonda,

Thanks for a quick respond!

I have an additional question;

Is there any places you might recommend us to stay or see once we arrive to Lipari?

Regards,

Tim

Prego Tim,

First decide if you'd like to stay in town, or within a short distance of town, or further afield in Canneto or Acquacalda.

There are many accommodation options on Lipari, but perhaps consider Hotel Mea.

This thread discusses things to see and do on Lipari.
