KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Taormina

  • Car rentals in Taormina provide numerous advantages over public transportation. A Taormina car rental will provide you with a significant level of convenience and flexibility, ensuring that you avoid the fixed schedules of public transportation. With a rental car, you have the freedom to explore Taormina's attractions, including Teatro Antico di Taormina, Villa Comunale di Taormina, and Chiesa Madonna della Rocca, within your own schedule. You can also reach the region's remote areas, which may be inaccessible by buses or trains. With a rental car, you can directly reach your desired destinations without multiple transfers or longer travel and waiting times, saving valuable time and enabling you to maximize your sightseeing opportunities. A rental car can also offer you greater comfort and convenience, especially if you're traveling with a group or carrying heavy luggage.
  • Catania–Fontanarossa Airport (CTA) is the main international airport serving Taormina and its metropolitan areas. If you are traveling to Taormina, CTA will be your destination airport. There are several car rentals in Taormina available at this airport. Upon disembarking from your flight, you can proceed directly to the arrivals area and locate the car rental desks without difficulty. The rental desks are well organized and staffed by knowledgeable professionals who will assist you with the rental process. Whether you've made a prior reservation or wish to rent a car on the spot, the car rental providers at CTA offer a wide selection of vehicles that will accommodate your budget and preferences.
  • Driving in Taormina provides a unique experience. The roads are often steep and narrow, with tight curves. As a result, navigating through the town can be challenging, requiring a high level of concentration and careful maneuvering. As you venture further into the outskirts and surrounding areas, you'll experience traffic congestion. It is essential to drive defensively and remain aware of other drivers, as Sicilian motorists tend to be quite assertive and accustomed to the local driving style. Keep an eye out for traffic signals and obey the posted speed limits. In addition, be cautious of crosswalks, as pedestrians have the right of way. It is essential to use your blinkers when changing lanes or making turns and to be mindful of motorcyclists and cyclists sharing the road.
  • When driving your vehicle from the car rental in Taormina, get prior knowledge about the city's rush hour periods. In the mornings, from around 9:00 am to 11:00 am, there is usually increased traffic as locals head towards downtown for work. The evening rush hour begins at around 5:00 pm and lasts until around 8:00 pm, as people return home from their offices. The city's major roads can become congested during these peak times, leading to slow-moving traffic and limited parking options. To escape the city's rush hour times, you can avoid Taormina's major thoroughfares, including Corso Umberto and Via Luigi Pirandello, or plan your trip ahead during off-peak hours.
