We are very excited to be visiting Sicily in July, and are finalising our travel plans. We have a flight out of Palermo airport July 18 at 12pm, and are deciding weather to spend our 4th night before this flight in Palermo or Castellammare. We are a young couple traveling on a budget so do not wish to spend the 60euro on a private transfer, and I thought I previously had read that there was no bus from Castellammere to Palermo airport direct, and we would have to travel via Palermo. However checking now there appears to be a direct service, is this correct? How reliable are these buses? From what I can see there is one at 8:15 that would get us in at 8:45. Is this a guaranteed departure?
And a side question, is it possible to visit Erice from Castellammare by public transport?
Thanks in advance!
