TIPS IF YOU ARRIVE IN THE PORT OF PALERMO:
If you bought your ticket ONLINE, remember to redeem the voucher in the BARBARO ticket office. We suggest you enter the port area through the Via E. Amari (corner with Via F. Crispi). Here, you will also find the shuttle bus both to the ferry (Ferry "Antonello Da Messina"--Società di Navigazione Siciliana-SNS) and the hydrofoil docks (hydrofoil "Tiziano" by SNS or Catamaran "Ale M" by Usticalines). Port staff available at the entrance for onsite information
If you DO NOT have your ticket yet: contact the biglietteria "Barbaro Viaggi" (Tel 091 324255). This is now the ONLY ticket office for both the SNS (previously SIREMAR) and Usticalines companies. It is located inside the port area (updated as of April 2016). We strongly recommend you to be at the ticket office at least 40 minutes before departure
From the Palermo Airport to the Port/Politeama, we recommend the city bus by the "Prestia & Comandè" company or a taxi sharing service available at the airport. We can book taxi services for you or, for groups, dedicated van/bus transportation.
