Malta to Sicily - October 2012

I am holidaying in Malta for 2 weeks in October 2012 and would like to visit Sicily for 3 days 2 nights, and would like to know the most direct route, boat or plane? best prices and how long the journey would take.

Also any recommendations on B&B /Hotels.

I will have a hire car whilst on Malta.

Thank You

hi you can either travel via virtu ferries or airline airmalta both take you to sicily.

flight is obviously must shorter in time to arrive however give these sites a look and see whats the best deal to travel either by plane or ferry. Last i traveled to sicily we stayed at a lovely place sotto il vulcano family run business and very nice hosts and great bfast too.

I'm sure that you would enjoy using the Virtu ferries for your Sicily crossing - taking the car is no problem - I used them in June and ended up in Taormina - great place. The ferry takes just 90 minutes for the crossing, but with a car you are required to be at the port some 2hrs before departure.

The drive to Taormina should only take approx 2.5hrs using the autoroute - a doddle.

Check Virtu website for current prices - when I went the car was about 50 euro each way and the driver/passenger about 60 eruo each way - total return cost for car and two people about 340 euro. Go for it.

I have flown there, much faster for a few euro, got a bus to Taormina from the airport and stayed at a hotel.

Car is expensive to ferry IMO !!!
