How to reach the island

Ustica is a small and rocky Island, so does not have an airport. If you arrive from North Italy, Europe or everywhere out of Italy, the most convenient solution is to flight to Palermo.
Many airlines companies have direct flights, including low cost flights from all major Italian and European cities.
From the airport a comfortable bus of the company "Prestia & Comandè " takes you to the port in Palermo. It leaves every 30 minutes.
For help on flights booking or to arrange a private transfer from the airport to the port at economical prices, please contact us.
From the Palermo port, as well as other locations in southern Italy (Naples, Trapani), you can find ferry boat and hydrofoil services direct to Ustica.

Here you can find the links to the websites of the boat companies, to have a look at timetables.

From Palermo
- Siremar >>
- Ustica Lines >>

From Trapani
- Ustica Lines >>

From Napoli
Ustica Lines >>

Note: there is no difference between timetables for the winter season (usually in force until May and from late September onwards) and for the summer season during which trips are more frequent within the week.

Finally, for those coming from Rome or Naples may be convenient to take the ferry boat. Tirrenia and Grandi Navi Veloci move from Civitavecchia and Naples.
In all the cases, you may board in the evening and arrive at the port of Palermo in the early morning, in time to catch one of the first hydrofoils to Ustica.
So you are travelling at night and you have the whole day available for starting your holiday!

It is not necessary to come in Ustica with the car.
Ustica is small, with few parking and you can reach everything around the island by feet.
People arriving by car in Palermo can leave the car in the port parking (guarded during the day and night).
Once on the island you can rent a scooter at reasonable prices, also for a few hours.
We strongly recommend to have a trip around the island and have a stop in bays to watch the sunset from the cliffs, it’s really exiting!
