How to reach Catania and Monastero Dei Benedettini from Catania Airport   

By public transports: Outside the "Fontanarossa" airport terminal (arrival level, out from the airport on the left) there is a public bus stop of Azienda Municipale Trasporti (AMT). The AMT line number nicknamed "Alibus" runs about every 20 minutes, from 4.40 am to midnight (see here) from the Airport to the Catania Central Station. You can buy the ticket on board, ticket price: €4.00. Remember to validate your ticket at the box placed inside the bus. Get out of the bus at the Piazza Stesicoro bus stop. Many hotels area availabe around there. From piazza Stesicoro it is not hard to reach the Monastero dei Benedittini on foot. Walking distance is about 950 m as shown in the picture below. Please note that the stretch along Via Antonino di Sangiuliano is on a steep slope.

By taxi: There is a Radio-taxi service (+39-095-330966 or +39-095-8833) which usually offers good fares.   
Taxis are available at any time outside the airport and in Catania just on call.  
We recommend you to not use taxis different from the former. The others will ask you very high fares.
