Does bus from Taormina to Catania stop by Taormina rail sta?

Dear all,

We plan to arrive Taormina in early morning and stop by there for a few hours before heading to Catania. Since it seems there is no left luggage service in downtown Taormina, I guess we have to leave our luggage in the railway station. In that case, after wandering in Taormina, we need to go back to the train station to get our luggage.

In case the train doesn't fit our schedule, does bus from Taormina to Catania also stop by Taormina railway station?

Thanks

Welcome to Sicily Eric X!

No, unfortunately Interbus doesn't stop at the train station on the way to Catania from Taormina.

http://www.interbus.it/

Under “Data/Date” (departure date), enter a date for this upcoming week to match the day you'll travel; under “Partenza/Departure” (the town you will be departing), scroll down to and click on Taormina; under Arrivo/Arrival (your destination town), scroll down to and click on Catania; under Tipo/Type, enter direct; click on “Ho letto e accetto le condizioni per l'utilizzo del servizio web”; then click on “Cerca” for schedules.

Click on the information symbol, to retrieve schedules, connections, stops, duration, connection time, cost, and bus company.

HOWEVER, you might take Interbus from Taormina to Giardini, and SOME of those bus would stop at the train station, Stazione FS.

Or you could take Taormina’s (inexpensive) ASM (Servizi Municipalizzati di Taormina) “Linea Verde” to the train station.

And then take Interbus from Giardini Naxos to Catania.

Just get back from Italy.

Actually I do find the bus I took from Taormina to Catania stopped by the train station... Not sure if this is the case for all buses...

Thanks anyway.

Thank you Eric X!

I have checked directly with Interbus in Taormina, and the buses are now stopping at the train station in Giardini.

The Interbus website is not indicating this stop.
