Taxi in Messina to Taormina??

I have searched this forum but can not find discussion on taxi service from Messina to Taormina.

Are taxis available at the cruise port? If so, about how much would it cost please to Taormina and then back to Messina (on May 23, 2014)? Also, any tips please for dealing with local taxi drivers?

Thank you!

Yes, taxis are available at Messina's port, but be sure the taxi service is licenced and legal.

You might prearrange your transfer with a taxi or tour company.

As Vagabonda wrote, use a transfer not a taxi. If you have to use a taxi, ensure it is a licensed taxi.

Just in case you used bus or train, here some information

Yes, it's very important to be sure the taxi is a licenced taxi.

Depending on your schedule, you might consider public transport, even if in one direction if public transport schedules conveniently match your schedule, and then you could prearrange a transfer in the opposite direction.

Use a transfer service from pier to pier. You can share a price for the transfer with other fellow cruisers. We did it last August and it cost us about 40 Euro pp for the day to go to Taomina/Castelmola. Check the Roll Call for your cruise (line, date) on cruisecritic.com. You might find and join a group there or start your own group. We used sicilylimousineservice.com/sicily/index.asp. Ask for Claudio! He is an excellent driver and a very pleasant and knowledgeable guy!! You will not regret!
