Travel to Catania airport on a Sunday

We will be in Sicily in May this year and are planning to spend a week in Syracuse, We fly back on the Sunday morning at 11.25 and are not sure if the bus runs early enough and whether we might be better having 6 nights in Syracuse then spend Saturday night in Catania.

Welcome to Sicily Lins45!

The first bus departs Siracusa at 8,00 with an arrival at the airport at 9,15.

Thank you very much for your reply Vagabonda. This helps with our decision to spend our second week in Siracusa. We will be in Cefalu for our first week in Sicily and want to travel by public transport to Siracusa on Sunday 18 May. I found a post from 2012 concerning a similar trip when you recommended taking the train to Palermo then the Interbus to Siracusa. I assume this journey will still be the best option?

Yes, that is the easiest way by public transport

Prego Lins45,

Yes, although counterintuitive, your fastest option from Cefalù to Siracusa would be the train from Cefalù to Palermo, and then the direct Interbus service from Palermo to Siracusa.

Bus from Cefalu to Syracuse?:

Hello, is there any public transport option from siracusa to Catania airport except interbus. Because is not useful on Sunday. And also there is no interbus shuttle from Catania to airport. I think there is AMT buses.

You could take the train from Siracusa to Catania.

Then take the local AMT Alibus 457 that runs the bus service between Catania and the airport.
