Catania for one night with 7am departure the next morning

Hi, on our last day we want to drive to Taormina for the day then head back to catania to see the fish market. Would you recommend dropping the car off on Saturday morning before the flight or on Friday night and taxing it to the airport. Lots of comments of not driving in catania... Or stay out if town close to the airport and taxi into town. Any comments will be helpful. Many thanks

The fish market runs early morning, so unless you're planning to see the market the morning after Taormina, see the market prior to going to Taormina.

And yes, avoid driving in Catania, so return the car at the airport, and take the Alibus between the airport and the city.

It's nicer to stay in Catania rather than around the airport.

Wow, how cool is this forum. Thanks for your reply. Will the bus be running that early in the morning? Or is a taxi better? Or any good farm stays ?

Taxis are pricey in Sicily, and prearranged transfers are usually a better value.

The AMT Alibus 457 between Fontanarossa and Catania runs very early morning.

The first Interbus service from Aeroporto Catania to Taormina runs at 6:45.

There are wonderful agritursimi throughout Sicily! Where?

I was thinking to drive to Taormina from siracusa for the day then miss out on catania and stay on a wine farm or village close to the airport. ? Is catania worth seeing ?

Interary

Day 1 mt enta

Day 2- 5 Modica

Day 5- 7 Siracusa

Day 8 Taormina ?

7 am departure from catania.

So it's where to stay on the last night ?

Thank you for your help again.
