transportation by bus in catania

If you're landing at Catania Airport and plan to explore the magnificent Sicily, you're in the right place! Catania Airport is one of the main transportation hubs on the island and offers various options to travel to the main Sicilian destinations and beyond. Here's a practical guide on how to take buses from the airport.

Where to Buy Tickets?

Immediately after leaving the airport's arrival area, on your right, you'll find three main ticket sale points for buses:

  • Interbus and Etna Trasporti: These companies offer connections to various destinations in Sicily such as Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Syracuse, Ragusa, Marzamemi, Gela, Piazza Armerina, and Sicily Outlet Village. But that's not all! There are many other destinations available, so we recommend checking the schedules and routes directly at the ticket office or on their websites.

  • SAIS Autotrasporti: This company is ideal if you want to reach places like Caltanissetta, Canicattì, Agrigento, Porto Empedocle, Barrafranca, Pietraperzia, Sommatino, Vittoria, and Comiso. Additionally, SAIS Autotrasporti also offers connections to farther destinations like Rome, Puglia, and Campania.

  • SAIS Autolinee: If your destination is Palermo, Enna, Messina, or once again the Sicily Outlet Village, this is the company for you. Make sure to visit their website for detailed information on routes and schedules.

Connection to the City of Catania: If you wish to stay in Catania, the Alibus is the perfect choice. This service connects the airport to the city center with departures every 20-30 minutes. All schedules are available online, so we recommend doing an internet search to best plan your trip.

We hope this guide has been helpful, and we wish you a fantastic trip to Sicily! If you need further information, don't hesitate to contact us or visit the transportation companies' websites mentioned above. Safe travels!
