How to move around Sicily by train

Pin It
Though trains are not ideal to move around if you have just a few days available, still they remain the most comfortable way to move along the Tyrrhenian and Ionic coast until Siracusa. Moreover, all Sicilian provinces are served by the railway.

The path between Palermo and Messina takes approximately 3 h 30’, depending on the stops. Intercity trains in this case are not convenient, since they take the same time but cost more. The journey Messina-Siracusa with regional trains takes between 2h 45′ and 3h 30′.

Intercity trains take 2h 30′ to 2h 40′. Both line routes are also served by express trains coming from continental Italy, but they suffer from chronic delays, so try to avoid them unless they are ready for departure when you arrive at the station.
