Bus from Catania airport to Modica on Sunday

My family is planning to arrive in Catania around 10:30 on a Sunday in March. We had hoped to stay in Modica for a week, but I have been looking at the AST schedule and there aren't many buses on Sunday, especially in the early afternoon. The train is out because it takes too long on Sunday. Are there any other options? Could we take the bus somewhere closer and get a taxi? Thanks for any suggestions.

Welcome to Sicily!

The AST bus from Catania’s airport to Modica at 13.45 is your best public transport option.

You might take the Etna Trasporti Interbus service from Catania’s airport to Ragusa and taxi from Ragusa – You could see Catania in the morning, although Sunday isn’t the best day to see the city.

Some prices you would expect to pay....

Thank you very much for the information. I think we have decided to stay closer to Catania because we will be traveling with a baby.

Ciao shadow168,

Catania itself wouldn’t be the best destination with a baby, but Siracusa, especially Ortigia would be wonderful!

You could take may day trips from Siracusa including Noto and Taormina, and there are excellent excursions as well.

There’s easy and convenient Interbus service from Catania’s airport to Siracusa.

And even a free shuttle from Siracusa’s bus and train station to Ortigia.
