transport taormina to sciacca - best to drive?

I am a female traveling alone - will be staying in Taormina for 10 days in Oct/Nov and would like to to to Sciaccia for the day during my trip to see the sustainable golf course they have there (professional interest). Would public transportation be impossible? Are there other alternatives? How easy is the drive? thanks so much!

Welcome to Sicily italaphileboston!

Public transport would not be possible – You could hire a car or hire a private transfer.

Sciacca isn’t at all near Taormina - Sciacca is 276 km from Taormina, and it would take 03h35 to drive in each direction.

Check driving routes and estimated driving times and distances on ViaMichelin.

http://www.viamichelin.com/

The route would involve autostrade and secondary roads, and it's not particularly challenging to drive.

Assuming you’re referencing the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort – Although listed as Sciacca, the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort is not located in Sciacca. It’s located on the SS115 about a 15-minute drive east of Sciacca.

There’s no train station nearby and the bus that runs between Agrigento and Sciacca doesn’t have a stop here.

Prego italaphileboston,

There’s really nothing around the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort – You would absolutely require a car.

You might consider another option nearer Taormina.
