Taormina back to Palermo

I want to go to Taormina from Palermo on the weekend and I see the train has a 6:05 departure on Saturday, which is great. But to return, I have to leave at 6pm - that's the latest train back to Palermo (I don't want to take a 11:30pm train and return at 8am Monday!)....is there a bus that leaves Taormina and goes back to Palermo later??

Thanks!

I couldn't believe it at first, but a you appear to be right. Whether you go via Catania or Messina, you still need to leave Taormina at around 6pm. Sicily is a big island, and it's 300km to Palermo.

I don't think there is a direct bus between the two, but I hope I'm wrong on this. I tried....

but maybe a Palermo based company may offer something.

Suggest you enjoy an extra night in Taormina, and head back Monday.
