"Coming by ship into Messina and catching train" Messina Transportation Tip by maryandken

Messina Transportation: 10 reviews and 11 photos

Once docked at port, easy short walk to the train station to get a ticket to Taormina. Just a few blocks to the station. It's about an hour ride on the train to the destination, easy to buy a RT ticket. Once in Taormina, don't think you can walk into the center of the town, it's too far, and straight up. You need to either wait on the bus at the station, or catch a taxi. We caught a taxi and it was 20 Euro. Caught another one back down when we were ready to go. Caught the train back and got there in plenty of time.
