Travel to Sicily

ARRIVING

The city of Grammichele is served by two airports:

  • Catania International Airport “Fontanarossa” (IATA: CTA), also named as “Vincenzo Bellini” Airport, is the closest international airport to Grammichele. It is named after the opera composer Vincenzo Bellini, who was born in Catania. It is the busiest airport in Sicily and the 6th busiest in Italy with 7.304.012 passengers in 2014. This airport is served by major airlines such as Alitalia, Lufthansa and Air Berlin, and low costs such as easyJet and Ryanair, which connect Catania to the most important Italian and European destinations.
  • Comiso Airport “Pio La Torre” (IATA: CIY), also named as “Vincenzo Magliocco” Airport, is a small airport located in the Ragusa province. The airport is served by a few airlines, mostly low-cost, but conveniently connects the city with the airport of London-Stansted, Rome-Fiumicino, Milan-Malpensa and Linate, Turin, Frankfurt-Hahn, Düsseldorf-Weeze, Dublin, and Bruxelles-Charleroi.

RENTING A CAR

If you are planning to stay in town, and to book a B&B or a Hotel that is at walking distance to the festival area, you will not need to rent a car, as Grammichele is a small city and we will provide transportation from/to the airport and for the tours. If you book one of the B&Bs or Hotels that is more than 1 mile far from the festival area, you will need to rent a car. Also, if you wish to be more independent and explore Sicily by your own, we can put you in contact with a professional driver for a discounted rate.
