Travel to the School
There are many flights from Rome to Palermo, a few from Milan apart from the international connections. On the initial and final day transfers are provided by the Ettore Majorana Centre. At Arrivals, look for the meeting-point poster "Ettore Majorana Centre". Go to the tourist office in the Arrivals area if you have any problems.
From either Milan or Rome it is relatively easy to reach Erice. You must take a train to Trapani. Erice is situated on the moutain overlooking Trapani. From Trapani take a taxi to Erice. Confirm the price before taking the taxi.
There are two possibilities:
- Drive along the Autostrada del Sole via Milan-Bologna-Florence-Rome-Naples-Villa San Giovanni (Reggio Calabria);
then take a ferry-boat from Villa San Giovanni to Messina and drive to Erice (350 km from Messina).
- Take the ferry-boat either from Genoa or Naples to Palermo, and then drive on to Erice (100 km from Palermo).
The sits on the ferry-boat must be booked in advance.
