Prices have really come down - Of course depending where you're located, around 1 euro 20-1 euro 25 per litre.

Last August - A litre costs 1 euro 47.

Hi. You can save money with the self service option. In the bigger gas station you'll find that the self service pump costs 5 of more euro cents less. Self service is called "fai da te" in italian, and signposted. Now the self service price is between 1 euro 13 cents for liter and 1 euro 17, depends on the company.you can even save if you rent a car with diesel fuel. diesel now is around 1 euro 5 cents for liter.

Biondo,

Thank you very much. I'll keep your information in mind, though I don't think Fiat Punto is available in diesel version.

Dear Vagabonda,

We are arriving in Naples at 14:50 and hope to make it to Taormina the same day. If we arrive (by car) in Taormina around 23:30 or so where would you look for a hotel (clean but not very expensive. For one night - we are off to Syracusa the next day). I don't want to make a reservation since I'm not sure we'll make it the first day. I've heard that the last ferry to Sicily is around 22:00. Thanks!

Why not fly from Naples to Catania? Air Italy has very inexpensive flights – Probably less expensive than the ferry.

Then take the direct Etna Trasporti bus from the airport to Taormina and hire the car on your departure from Taormina.

You really should book in advance – It would be a huge risk to arrive in Taormina at 23.30 without a reservation.

We are planning to travel a lot (Taormina, Syracusa, Agrigento, then 5 nights in Scopello (Tranchina) with day trips to Palermo, Erice, Segeste, Cefalu, Monreale). Then 5 days on Amalfi Coast. Since we got a great deal from Hertz ($175 for two weeks) we decided to get a car. Do you know when is the last ferry to Messina? I don't think we can leave Naples before 16:00. Thanks!
