Travel via public transport

Hi all,

My girlfriend and I are travelling to Sicily soon and will be moving around the island a bit. We can't drive so will have to use public transport and were hoping someone would have some advice for two particular legs of the journey that we are unsure about:

1) Syracuse -> Marina Di Ragusa (23/06/18)

2) Ragusa -> Comiso airport (29/06/18)

We're expecting that going via bus is the best option but we aren't sure on routes/timings, as well as whether we have to book in advance or not. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Paul

P.S. There was an earlier answer that said the Interbus website would show timetables from Siracusa to Marina Di Ragusa but this no longer appears to be correct.

Welcome to Sicily Paul F!

Take the train or AST from Siracusa to Ragusa, and Tumino from Ragusa to Marina.

Interbus also runs limited bus service between Ragusa and Marina di Ragusa.

Tumino also runs the bus service between Ragusa and Aeroporto Comiso, or consider a shuttle.

To secure Interbus schedules from Siracusa to Ragusa, you would travel via Catania, so under Tipo/Type, enter 1 cambio\change.

This is a long route you would consider on a Sunday when transport in Ragusa province is limited.

Hi Vagabonda,

That's some very useful information, thank you! Do you know whether we have to buy tickets for these buses before we travel? I think I read somewhere that a lot of them require you to buy a ticket from a shop/station which then gets stamped when you board.

Prego Paul,

Purchase tickets at biglietterie prior to boarding, and if there's no biglietteria or if closed, then purchase tickets on the bus.

Purchase train tickets at a biglietteria or online.

Hello!

I am also going to Sicily with a friend and we are both non drivers so we will also have to take the public transportation. We will arrive on the 5th of August in Pozzallo with the boat from Malta and we will be staying either in Ragusa or in Modica. The problem is, I couldn´t find any bus or train on that Sunday that would take us there.

Any ideas how to get to Ragusa or Modica from Pozzallo on a Sunday?

I´d be thankful for any reply!

Thanks, Kinga

What time are you arriving in Pozzallo?

There's AST bus service from Pozzallo to Modica on 5 August.
