The bus station is located right in Taormina on Via Pirandello, across from the cable car (funivia).

Welcome to Sicily prinsessa555!

Take SAIS from Palermo to the Catania airport and Etna Trasporti from the airport to Taormina.

Take Etna Trasporti from Taormina to Catania’s Stazione Centrale. The port is about 1 km, so taxi.

This map shows the locations of the station and port.

The area around the port is not pedestrian friendly – The taxi from the train station to the port should cost around 5 euros.

There’s also a Metro station near the port.

How long would it take to get to Taormina from the center of Catania. Is a day trip possible? How long will the trip please?

A day trip is very possible.

Take Etna Trasporti from Catania to Taormina – It’s best to arrive in Taormina by bus since the bus station is right in town.

Etna Trasporti – The trip would take from 01h10 to 01h25:
