Transfer Palermo to Portorosa

Hi,

I will be travelling from Palermo to Portorosa in August.

I was considering taking the train from Palermo to Furnari and then arrange a transfer from Furnari to Portorosa.

Is that the easiest and cost effective way to get there?

Thanks for your advice.

You might take the train from Palermo to Barcellona and then the AST bus service from Barcellona to Portorosa.

Thanks for your quick reply vagabonda!

My second concern is to know how much i can rely on the announced timetables.

Are trains often late?

Yes, train are often (not always) late. It's unpredictable, but there aren't alternatives, unless you rent a car or book a private transfer.

Prego 107SO1234,

Trains (on this route) are very often late....

You might take the Garage delle Isole shuttle service from Palermo to Milazzo, and then take AST from Milazzo to Portoroso.

Optimally you would hire a car in this area!
