Getting to Acireale on a Sunday from Catania

Ciao

Can anyone advise me on the easiest way to get to Acireale on a sunday from Catania?

When I was previously in Sicily I seem to remember public transport wasn't so effective on sundays...

Many thanks,

Rich

Transport is very limited on weekends, especially Sundays!

Welcome to Sicily Pickle261169!

There is no train station at Catania's airport, so you would first take the Alibus from the airport to Catania Centrale. Then you would take the train to Acieale, but Acireale’s train station is located outside town, and there's infrequent transport from the station to the town centre.

There's very infrequent Interbus service between Catania and Acireale on Sundays.

Ad unfortunately no Sunday AST or Zappalà & Torrisi bus services.

Expect to pay € 55,00 for a taxi from the airport to Acireale, your easiest and most convenient option.

Prego Pickle261169,

If you decide on the train, perhaps you could request your hotel to arrange a taxi, perhaps € 10,00.

Buon viaggio!
