Catania Parking Choices
The best place to park at Catania-Fontanarossa Airport is the P4 lot, which is for long-term parking. The P4 lot has 789 spaces, including sixteen handicap spaces, but you will also find long-term parking spaces in the P2 and P5 lots. The P1 and P3 lots are good for short-term parking.
Catania Ground Transportation
Two taxi companies serve the airport: Radiotaxi and Night Service, both of which charge per mile. You can contact each company directly to schedule your trip. If you catch a taxi outside the airport, make sure it has a working meter. Public transit in the form of the AMT Alibus is another option for travellers heading downtown. The first bus leaves the airport at 5 a.m. and runs every twenty minutes from then until midnight. The bus will take you to the city centre, and one of its stops is right outside the Catania Railway Station.
Enjoy a Meal
Catania-Fontanarossa Airport has restaurants on both sides of its building. Prior to passing through security, you will come across a small coffee bar that serves food and drinks. After security, you can grab some food from self-serving kiosks or have a more leisurely meal in a large sit-down restaurant or a second small coffee bar. These restaurants are great for whiling away the hours before you depart Catania.
The Airport in Reykjavik
Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland. Because of the island's isolated location in the remote north Atlantic, most visitors to Iceland choose to fly to the country by way of Reykjavik Airport, which accepts flights from Air Iceland, Eagle Air, and Atlantic Airways. Unusually for a major airport, it is actually located near the centre of the capital city, in Vatnsmyri. This is made possible by the city's open layout and general lack of obstructions.
On Leaving Reykjavik Airport
Reykjavik Airport is near the heart of downtown and thus close to hotels, restaurants, and other amenities. The airport is served by not only the city's metro bus service but also private taxis and shuttles. The airport also hosts on-site facilities for Avis, Budget, and Hertz. Visitors are encouraged to make arrangements in advance, as booking your transportation and lodging through ebookers will help cut down on unnecessary delays and expenses.
The Climate in Reykjavik
Iceland is near the Arctic Circle, and it lives up to its name in the winter, with January temperatures ranging from lows of -2°C, to highs in the low single digits. Summer is warmer, of course, and temperatures in July run from lows of 8°C to highs of 15°C.
Attractions in Reykjavik
You certainly won't be bored in Iceland. Like the rest of the island, the capital is surrounded by active volcanoes and has some of the most dramatic scenery in the world. Many of the activities you'll find here involve some kind of tour around the scenic countryside. One of these is Viking Horses, a private company offering horseback tours and day trips for parties of up to eight people. In the city, a visit to Hallgrimur's Church (Hallgrimskirkja) is itself worth a trip to Iceland. Expertly constructed from the volcanic basalt of Reykjavik, the cathedral is so tall that its tower has historically been used as a navigational checkpoint for ships as if it were a lighthouse. The site is open daily and offers classical concerts from 3 p.m.
