There is a bus service direct from the airport to Taormina that takes approximately 90 minutes and costs euro 4,00 each way. Tickets may be purchased at the airport or at the bus station and buses leave nearly every hour during the high season and obviously less during low season.

Alternatively, there are local buses leaving from the Central Railway Station in Catania and it takes approximately 2 hours to go via the inner roads. To get to the Central Railway Station in Catania you must take a city bus called Alibus, which leaves every 20 minutes from the airport to the Central Station Square (Piazza della Stazione). From there, several buses or trains go to Taormina daily.

The Taormina bus stazione is a 10-minute walk from the centre of town, while the Taormina Railway Station is located in Giardini-Naxos, along the coast.

Taormina is high atop Monte Tauro and in order to arrive in Taormina from the Giardini-Naxos train station, you must take a local bus or taxi (a 10-minute drive).

We offer an airport pick-up service from the Catania Airport to Taormina. This service must be reserved at least one week in advance of arrival. All flight changes or late flights must be immediately communicated directly to the service. Direct contact information to be provided. This service is not cancellable within 48 hours of your arrival.
