After driving down the coast of Calabria it was time to take the ferry to Sicily.
I had tried, without success to book our passage, only to find out from the helpful person at the hotel in Pizzo that you can’t book. You just line up, buy a ticket just before the ferry and drive on…which is what we did.
There was lots of room inside, but I suppose it is much busier in high season.
In 20 minutes we were in Sicily.
The ferry company is called Caronte &Tourist…carontetourist.it. The two way ticket was €78 and is valid for 3 months.
The whole process was very easy and uncomplicated. The ferry leaves from Villa San Giorgio, just north of Reggio Calabria. The directions through the town and to the wharf were easy to follow…not what we expected at all.
We are now in Taormina. Internet access is patchy and we have already been to several great places, so the posts may not come in order, but they will come eventually.
