Traveling from Siracusa to Taormina on 1 of May/Festa del Lavoro

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I have just booked flight tickets to Sicily and will be landing with my girlfriend at Catania Airport on the 29 of April(Sunday) and returning home on the 4 of May(Friday). I have been thinking about staying first 2 nights in Siracusa and then to go for 3 nights to Taormina, but have just noticed that if I decided to do so I would have to travel on the 1 of May which is Tuesday.

Could you please tell me how much Festa del Lavoro on the 1 of May could affect my trip from Siracusa to Taromina?

I see that connection between these two cities is very good, there are buses leaving almost every hour during the week; it is slighty worse during the weekends, but have no idea how it is on holidays, especially labour day.

Can I expect the timetable on the 1 of May to be similar to the one during the weekends? (for the moment, let say on Sundays there is one bus leaving Siracusa at 8:00-which is a bit too early for me; the next at 13:00 and arrives in Taormina at 17:00 which destroyes the day a bit.).

is it a good idea to move to Taormina on the 1 of May?Or maybe in this case it would be better to stay 3 days in Siracusa and move for 2 days to Taormina?

thank you
