Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

Taking the train from Naples to Taormina in Sicily is extremely easy, but it’s not fast. You’ll be rewarded by some fabulous coastal scenery, so consider a daytime train if you have the time. These trains are usually much cheaper than the overnight service.

Sit on the right side of the train for the best views. The train skirts Vesuvius on the route out of Naples. Heading south, the railway plays cat and mouse with the wild Cilento coast, here and there diving down to the sea before retreating inland. Once into Calabria, the line more consistently hugs the coast. At Villa San Giovanni, the entire train rolls onto a ship for the short crossing to Sicily. Dry land is reached at Messina, from where it is just 40 minutes down the coast to Taormina.

Naples Centrale to Taormina-Giardini

All trains to Sicily depart from Naples Centrale station. You'll arrive at Taormina Giardini station which is on the coast just south of Taormina itself. The station is notable for its tilework. It’s a good glimpse of Taormina style.

The daytime trains make four intermediate stops on the mainland while travelling south from Naples to the ferry terminal for Sicily. The ferry lets you catch the sea breeze before the short final part of the journey from the port of Messina down to Taormina. All in all, this rates as one of Europe’s finest rail rides.
