In Sicily are three major airports:

  • Palermo: 20 minutes drive to Casa Pianino
  • Trapani (Birgi): 40 min drive. This summer (2018), Ryanair decided to stop flying on Trapani, due to complaints filed by Alitalia following a public tender. We hope this will be resolved by the summer of 2019)
  • Catania is on the other side of the island and is not really recommended. 4 hours drive on average.
