HOW TO GET TO SICILY

Arrival by plane

In Sicily there are 2 international airports: Palermo and Catania, which are served daily by all major airlines. Regional airports are also available in Trapani, Lampedusa and Pantelleria. The fastest way to reach us is when you arrive in Palermo. From there you can take a rental car, take the train to us or take advantage of our transfer service. Get information here.

We recommend the low-cost airlines Air-Berlin, RyanAir or Germanwings, which offer really moderate prices and fly directly to Catania and Palermo from Germany.
