Travel to and from Stromboli and Milazzo

Hi,

I have secured accommodation on Stromboli from 18/09 until 22/09, arriving in Palermo on 17/09.

Three questions:

1. I need to get from Palermo to Milazzo to catch a ferry. Do I have time to do this on 18/09?

2. Am I able to pre-book tickets for the ferry? Siremar.it seems to only appear in Italian.

3. I need to be Agrigento by 2000 on 22/09. Is this possible? The train lines seem to take an hour and with siremar appearing only in Italian, I am finding it difficult to understand.

Any guidance appreciated as I have paid for my accommodation on Stromboli and I am a little concerned I can't do it all.

Vagabonda, if you are out there, any guidance appreciated.

Welcome to Sicily LondonGav!

Yes – Take the train from Palermo to Milazzo and the AST bus from Milazzo’s train station to Milazzo’s port. Then take the Ustica Lines hydrofoil from Milazzo to Stromboli. Yes, you can pre-book your ticket.

There is no easy way to arrive in Agrigento...

But you could take the train from Milazzo to Catania and the SAIS Trasporti bus from Catania to Agrigento, or you might take the Ustica Lines hydrofoil from the Aeolians to Messina, the SAIS Autolinee bus from Messina to Catania or Catania’s airport and the SAIS Trasporti bus from Catania or Catania’s airport to Agrigento.

Or you might simply take Trenitalia from Milazzo’s station to Agrigento Centrale with several changes, probably via Termini Imerese.

Prego LondonGav,

AST buses run frequently between Milazzo's train station and port and generally the buses greet arriving ferries, but bus schedules change in autumn, so check "Messina Orario estivo" and "Messina Orario invernale" for the most current schedule. It took awhile in spring for the schedule change....
