Catania-Fontanarossa Airport

Airport Car Hire

Catania Airport is the busiest airport not only on Sicily but in southern Italy as a whole. It is a major gateway for tourists from all over, but particularly Brits. The entire island is accessible from Catania, particularly if you hire a car. It is also convenient to get to the southern part of the boot that is Italy from the airport. All sorts of Italian adventures can be had with Catani as their starting point. 

Tolls: There are some toll roads on Sicily. An example is the motorway between Catania and Messina (the A18). Fortunately, it is possible to pay for tolls with cash. No electronic transponder is needed on Sicily.  

Taking a hire car to the mainland: Most hire companies at Catania Airport allow their cars to be taken between Sicily and mainland Italy. Usually, travellers make this a one-way trip (that is, not returning to Siciliy or not returning to the mainland). There is an additional fee for this, though it is not large percentage-wise if hiring a car for a week or more. You can search for the location where you would like to drop off the car and the extra fee will be included in the total prices. 

One-way rental between Sicily and Sardinia may not be available by the specific hire company you choose. And if they are, the fee is significantly higher than travelling to the mainland. 

So don't wait! Plan your trip to Sicily, hire a car, and enjoy the sunny beaches! And here are some destinations on the island to put on your list: 

  • Piazza del Duomo. Catania is famous for its Baroque architecture, and the Piazza del Duomo, or the Cathedral Square, is arguably one of the best places to enjoy it. Some of the buildings located here include the Cathedral of St. Agatha, as well as the Palace of Clerks, Diocesan Museum, and the next-door Municipal Palace.
  • Mount Etna. Still active and dominating the view from anywhere in the city, Mount Etna is another symbol of this part of Sicily. There are several ways to visit it — you can get quite far up with a rental car — but to access the summit, you will need to join a guided tour of which there are plenty to be booked in Catania.
  • Ancient Catania. Sicily was once a home of Ancient Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, and numerous other legendary civilizations, and Catania was no exception in this regard. Some of the most notable heritage sites include the Roman Odeon, Achillean Baths, Rotonda Baths, and an amphitheater. Plenty of other legendary sites can be found in Southeast Sicily and beyond.
