The closest airports to Syracuse are the Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (airport code: CTA) and the Comiso Airport (airport code: CIY), with CTA being the larger international airport. Visitors have various options for getting from the airport to the downtown Syracuse, which is less than 30 minutes from CTA and 1 hour and 30 minutes from CIY.
Car: Within the airport terminals, visitors can find all the main car rental agencies. The route from CTA simply follows the south-bound motorway (Autostrada 339 Catania-Siracusa) up to the the Siracusa Sud access. If renting a car from CIY, we recommend booking the additional sat nav service, as simply following road signs can be confusing.
