Catania Travel

Hi just some more questions before I arrive in Sicily next Wednesday.
I will be in Siracusa for the day to visit the Sactuary, will there be a market daily there? If yes is it far away from the Sanctuary?
Catani will be my next stop for 3 days. Would like to visit Misterbianco and Etnapolis. Where do I have to go to catch the train/metro/bus to travel there and which is the best/cheapest/safest means of travelling.
Thanks for the help

There are a number of street markets in Siracusa. My favorite is of course on Ortygia. Santuario della Madonna is about a mile from Ortygia.

Sorry I forgot to add to my above post. Transportation from Misterbianco and Etnapolis are from Catania with circumetnea.it

The best way to reach etnapolis from Catania is by the "Tangenziale", take the freeway "A19 Palermo Catania" exit in Misterbianco and follow the Paternò directions.

By the Sanctuary, do you mean one of the monuments in the archaeological park ? Or maybe the catacombs ?
