parking for taormina

Hi. We are staying in mazzeo at the moment and want to visit taormina. We drove in yesterday evening but couldn't find anywhere to park. Can anyone suggest where to park please? Weve looked at buses but they seem to stop very early. Thanks

Jo

You would park at the parking stations at either end of town, Parcheggio Lumbi or Parcheggio Porta Catania, but you could also park at the funivia station below town and then take the funivia up to town. You would then park at Parcheggio Mazzarò.

Thanks for replying so quickly. How much is the parking. I have been looking on those sites but cant see a translate bit. What would you recommend?

As you leave the motorway towards Taormina there is a roundabout and a multi-level car park (Parcheggio Lumbi) Shuttle buses then run up the hill to the main gate of Taormina.

I'm not sure how late the shuttle buses run though. There may be parking closer to town but this worked well for us.

from memory the parking was only 2-3Euro and the shuttle was free

You can find the parking rates on the comune website as well.

If you plan to drive up to town, you would find the Porta Catania station the more convenient station, since it's level with Taormina's Corso Umberto, the historic centre's main pedestrian street, and it wouldn't require a shuttle to town.

You wouldn't require the motorway. Simply drive via Nazionale below town past the funivia station in the direction of Giardini, and follow signs for the hospital.

You would approach via Crocefisso on your right. You’ll see signs posted for via Crocefisso –Castelmola, ospedale (hospital), “P” porta Catania, Villa Sirena....

Take this right turn onto via Crocefisso. This road leads directly to the Porta Catania parking station in Taormina.

Once you make the right turn, the road begins to climb with some curves as you'll pass Villa Sirina on your right.

We paid 2 Euros for the first hour & 1 Euro per hour thereafter for parking at the Funivia.
