 Syracuse Free Walking Tou

Syracuse Free Walking Tour

Every Tuesday & Friday afternoon (summer months and Christmas period)

Fontane Bianche's beach Fontane Bianche,  about 9 miles southern from Syracuse is among the favourite beaches in the area, from locals and tourists for the crystalline water and golden sand. It's also a summer base for many tourists in the summer thanks to the hotels, B&B and apartments which are located there. Due to the distance from the town a car or public transport is needed to arrive there. There are two bus lines which connect Syracuse and Fontane Bianche (nr. 21 and 22 from Ast). Unfortunately at present, the local busses' service quality is very poor: few busses, often late and crowded with people during the summer months.

 

An other option to get to Fontane Bianche during the summer is the train. For some years now, Trenitalia has activated again the small station of Fontane Bianche. There are not many trains during the day (and often there are no trains on Sundays) but during the week it can be a comfortable alternative to the public bus. The train station of Fontane Bianche is located about 600 m from the nearest beach access and on the way to the little village of Cassibile.

In Fontane Bianche there are beach resorts and free beaches. From the mid of July to the end of August it's usually very crowded. During the other months there are not too many people on the beach.

The travel time by train from Syracuse to Fontane Bianche is 14 minutes and it's also possible to take bikes on the trains. The fare is € 2,50. It's possible to buy the tickets online or at Syracuse's train station. There is no ticket office in Fontane Bianche.

Below you can fine the timetable for summer 2017. We always suggest to have a look at the official website of Trenitalia for updates.  We are not responsible for changes after the publishing date of this post.

The trains which arrive from Syracuse continue, after Fontane Bianche, to Avola, Noto and some of them also to Ragusa. If you have an accomodation in Fontane Bianche it can be a good solution to visit south-eastern Sicily.
