Map & Directions
From the Airport:
Take the orange AMT bus #524 for €1 (the stop & tickets are to the right as you exit the terminal) to the local bus station at Piazza Borsellino (10 minutes). Get off and walk past 'McDonalds' and 'Café Alcala' up Via Alcala. At the top turn right into Via Cristoforo Colombo and then take the 1st street on the left, Via Plebiscito. Walk up the hill and our palazzo is at #133, on the left.
NB: From the bus stop it is a 5 minute walk and the best way to get to the B&B
Alternatively, you can take the 'Alibus' for €4, which runs from the airport to the Central Station. The stop to get off at is as you exit the port by the arches of the viaduct. Walk left down Via Dusmet, following the arches, until you reach the 'fish market' at the end, with 'Bar Etoile D'Or' on your right. Turn left under the arches, following the street 'Via Cristoforo Colombo' and then take the 2nd street on the right, Via Plebiscito. Walk up the hill and our palazzo is at #133, on the left.

NB: There a 2 routes, #431 N ('nera'/black) and #431 R ('rossa'/red). Both take Via Plebiscito but the black route is much quicker! If you do take the red route, ask the driver for Via Angelo Custode/Via Plebiscito, vicino il Castello and you will still find us easily.

Follow the road ('Via Cristoforo Colombo') left under the arches and then take the 2nd right into our street, Via Plebiscito.
The bell/intercom is at the 1st door on your left as you enter through the big iron gates, named Nunziata/Morgans.
