Here is our itinerary so far:
DEPART Philadelphia, PA (PHL) 28April2014 @ 6:45pm (18:45)
ARRIVE Venice, IT (VCE) 29April2014 @ 9:15am (9:15)
DEPART Venice, IT (VCE) 29April2014 @ 1:00pm (13:00)
ARRIVE Catania, IT (CTA) 29April2014 @ 2:45pm (14:45)
I have read that I have two options for transportation to Taormina....
INTERBUS and TRENITALIA
On the Interbus website, I have found a bus that says it departs at 15:45 and arrives at 17:11. Unfortunately when I go to www.onbus.it to book, that time is not available. Does this mean that this bus is all booked up? Will we be able to take this bus if we don't purchase a ticket in advance (we were trying to save a few bucks by doing it in advance).
After that didn't work I looked into Trenitalia.
Again I have type in my itinerary (Catania Centrale TO Taormina-Giardini) and although I see a time of 15:46 for departure, it says it is not available for purchase. :(
We will have been traveling for MANY hours...so we just want the fastest and cheapest so we can start relaxing ASAP!!! We are willing to splurge if it saves significant time. We are not afraid of public transit but if someone tells us it's worth it to splurge for direct transport we would definitely consider it!
Thanks so much!
