Easiest and fastest way to get to Taormina from Messina is to take the bus from the Interbus Terminal in Piazza della Repubblica (outside the central railway station).

The bus terminal in Taormina is within walking distance from the town centre and makes it very convenient (the train gets in Giardini Naxos).

Enjoy!

Sal is absolutely correct – the bus is always the very best way to arrive in Taormina with the bus terminal right on Via Pirandello near Taormina’s Porta Messina.

The train would require an Interbus from the Giardini train station up to Taormina - 15 minutes.

Getting There (Taormina):

Transfer service costs €85 one way (Sicily Life or Sicily Limousine Service).
