Historic trains are returning to Sicily this weekend. The “Train of the Sea and Ancient Civilizations” will take passengers from Palermo Central station to explore the western part of the island, known for its picturesque landscapes of Sicilian countryside, olive groves, and hills, until reaching Castelvetrano. From there, it will be possible to visit the area of ancient Selinunte, one of the largest and most important archaeological parks internationally. It’s a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the island’s thousand-year history and natural beauty. Shuttle services will be available between Trappeto station and Trappeto Lakes, Castellamare for Scopello and Zingaro, Alcamo and Segesta, Castelvetrano and Selinunte, and Cave di Cusa. Departures from Palermo will be on Saturday and Sunday, August 26th and 27th, at 8:30 am.
On the splendid 19th-century railway line between Syracuse, Scicli, and Ragusa, passengers will have the chance to experience a timeless journey aboard a vintage train through several UNESCO World Heritage sites. Looking out of the historic train’s window, they can enjoy bucolic landscapes and the beauty of cities like Noto, Pozzallo, and Modica, creating a visually magical cultural experience. Shuttle services will be provided between the stations and historical centers in Ispica, Scicli, Modica, and Ragusa. Departures from Syracuse will be at 2:35 pm on Saturday and Sunday, August 26th and 27th.
