KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Taormina

  • Car hire in Taormina provides an ideal opportunity for you to experience the greater Sicily area without trying to figure out bus routes, relying on the schedule of someone or something else or paying exorbitant fees to a taxi driver. You'll have the chance to take several road trips to places like Mount Etna, which is about an hour away, or take a roughly 1h 30min drive to Syracuse. It'll take you just under 3 hours to visit the famous Agrigento Valley of the Temples, dating back more than 2,000 years; they’re difficult to reach via public transport.
  • A nearby airport to pick up your Taormina car hire is Catania Fontanarossa "Vincenzo Bellini" International Airport. It’s located about 1 hour from Taormina and is your likely arrival and departure point when travelling by flight. There are several major companies offering car hire from the main level of the arrivals hall at the airport. You'll also find a few extra companies at the car hire building located outside. Follow the signposts outside the exit to get to the car hire building.
  • Driving a car hire in Taormina can be challenging. The city is built to suit walking and biking and doesn't accommodate cars too well. The point of choosing a car hire in Taormina is to be able to explore the surrounding areas. When driving in the city, be aware of the thin streets that become pedestrian streets. Many pedestrians walk along the driving streets as if they are pedestrian roads. You'll want to drive slowly when you're in the city.
  • The major difficulties driving in Taormina include the small streets, the large number of pedestrians and the local scooters. The streets are better built for smaller cars and can be difficult to navigate. When choosing a car hire in the city, it would be wise to find somewhere to park the car and walk to the major sites instead. There are also large parts of Taormina that are no-driving zones, which makes having a car in the city centre difficult.
  • Book your rental car in Taormina at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Taormina are around 94% cheaper than other car types, on average
