80 euro is what it costs for taxi. Best to get your hotel to arrange it in case youe charged more than that .

Some companies beat that 80,00 euro rate - For example, Sicily Limousine Services has a current rate of 69,00 euro....

It isn't necessary to book through your hotel. You can easily book on your own via email, or even Skype!

New Travel Services charged us 65 euro. Good company and probably amongst the keenest prices. Have used them several times and would recommend, BTW a taxi from the airport can be risky the one time we did this the driver was ancient and driving in Taormina was clearly taxing for him. He also didn't know where he was going and we had to direct him :) and it was 80 euro a few years ago. So definitely prearrange!

Hi Belfastgirl23,

I agree about the taxi – Prearrange a private transfer for the best rates and the most reliable service.

Christian (New Travel Services) is hard to beat – Very competitive rates, reliable services, friendly and helpful…

Would you consider writing a review Belfastgirl23?

Christian from NewTravel drove us from the port of Catania to Taormina this morning and I highly recommend him. Easy to book on line. He says he prefers to deal direct and is cheaper than booking through hotels and travel agents who charge a commission.

Modern comfortable Mercedes, safe comfortable driving and Christian is friendly and knowledgable.

We chose him through many good reviews on TA.

Thanks, Vagabonda!
