The bus ride from Messina to Taormina is less than 2 hours. Taormina is a beautiful small town. Make sure to go there.

Thank you. Is that a public bus?

We ended up (after considering the bus) booking a driver with others from our roll call. While slightly more expensive, it gave us the piece of mind that we weren’t going to miss the ship...and we visited a winery too!


There appeared to be a number of taxis waiting at the port looking to take folks to Taromina...I can’t comment on how hard t was to find a taxi back to Messina!

I rented a car with full insurance from Avis (1block from pier) for about 50€ and drove to Taormina and Castelmola. It was an easy drive on a highway which you cannot get lost on. Just make sure you drive in the right lane and not the left passing lane. It was a pretty cheap outing for 4 people.
