Although I purchased a train ticket from Palermo to Catania back in USA, I am questioning whether it is best way to travel from Palermo to Taormina?? I have a ride to the airport in Palermo but am uncertain as to how to then get to Palermo train station?? And then once train gets to Catania is there a BUS at or near the Catania train station that would take me to Taormina (as I understand a train would leave me below Taormina)? If so, how frequently does that bus run?
On the other hand I am open to dropping the train altogether and taking a bus from Palermo to Taormina if that is less complicated or shorter travel time. Any help you are able to offer greatly appreciated as getting nervous about doing on my own.
