Traveling from Messina to Taoromina

We are arriving by cruise ship into Messina in October at around 7 am. We would love to just explore Taoromina on our own. Is it easy to get there by train or bus? Would appreciate any info as to what is available, time, pricing, etc. Thanks!

Welcome to Sicily prglidden52!

Rome2rio hasn't always been accurate, and so always reconfirm information, and reconfirm with the provider of the service.

Messina's bus and train station are both located at Piazza della Repubblica (Piazza della Stazione).

It's optimal to arrive in Taormina by bus as Taormina's Terminal Bus is located in town near Porta Messina, and the Taormina-Giardini train station is located below town on the coast requiring Interbus or Taormina ASM Azienda Servizi Municipalizzati Taormina Linea Verde.

Unfortunately 7 October is a Sunday when public transport services are limited, and there is only one bus run at 15:40.

There is significantly more train service with a train departing Messina for Taormina at 8:00, and then 9:18.

Here is the Interbus schedule from the train station (Stazione FS) to Taormina. Click on the information symbol for details.

And finally Taormina’s ASM “Linea Verde” service and schedules.

Just to note, the bus service from Taormina to Messina for the return is too early, and also only one run that day.

You would also return to Messina via Trenitalia.
