The bus departs directly from the CTA airport and goes to the Taormina bus depot near the Pensione Svizzera:

http://www.interbus.it/Orarietariffe.aspx?locPartenza=[11&locArrivo=0(7155&DataPartenza=24/08/2013

Enter "Aeroporto Catania" , "Taormina" and your date of travel for precise schedules.

One-way fare is 7.90 Euros.

Welcome to Sicily Dave P!

The Etna Trasporti bus departs Aeroporto Catania (Aeroporto Fontanarossa V. Bellini) outside Arrivals - Purchase your ticket at the biglietteria prior to boarding the bus.

The bus arrives in Taormina at Terminal Bus on via Pirandello.

We'd intended to get the bus back from Taormina to the airport but it looks from the timetable as if we'll have to get the first bus of the morning and then hang around for three hours at the airport. Is there any alternative to a taxi which I imagine would cost a fortune?

Welcome to Sicily Steff733!

What time is your flight?

Taxis are always much more expensive than prearranged transfers - Contact New Travel Service, €69.

Thanks. The flight's at 11.00 and the only bus that would work seems to be the 6.30 arriving at 8.00.

That's correct because the next departing bus from Taormina wouldn't arrive at the airport until 10.10.

It's not that long a wait!

Buon viaggio!
