Travel to Catania
Do you need some travel info? Well, you are in the right section. I want to say that it's our intension to pick you up at the airport whenever you arrive, so don't worry too much about it. I heard that someone of you will arrive to Palermo's Airport and need some info to reach Catania. So I recommend you to travel to Palermo in the morning so that you don't have to stay in a Hostel. Remember that there are an average of 3-4 hours to get to Catania from Palermo's Airport. So, in my opinion, it would be the best to travel directly to Catania.
