How to reach Giardini Naxos
On Sunday, May 12 and Monday May 13, we have together with SAT (Sicilian Airbus Travel Group) organized a private shuttle for the PPB Conference participants from Catania "Fontanarossa" International Airport to UNAHotel Naxos Beach (approx. 50 km). The service is free of charge. From the Arrival hall of the airport a SAT hostess will give you the directions to the bus.
Departures from the airport
The departure times will be announced here for Sunday and Monday May 12 and May 13.
The UNAHotel can also be reached by public transportation or by taxi. Public buses (ETNEA lines) are available from Catania Airport (on the right from the Arrival exit) to Giardini Naxos according to the following timetable.
At Catania Airport take the bus for Giardini Naxos and get off at RECANATI stop (after about one hour). From there you have only 300 m walk to UNAHotel Naxos Beach. Tickets may be bought on the bus. One way ticket costs euro 8,00.
Taxi and Car rental
Taxis are also available at the airport. The taxi fare from Airport to Giardini Naxos is fixed by the municipality in 80 Euro (per car, so sharing the car is very convenient). Note that no extra charge is needed for night service and luggage.
We recommend that you check the official taxi fares that are indicated at the taxi parking place and that you explicity ask the taxi driver how much you will be charged.
