Most hotels and attractions lie in the center and are best reached on foot. If you need to go farther afield, ATM buses (tel. 090-22851; www.atmmessina.it) depart from the transportation hub, Piazza della Repubblica. Bus tickets can be purchased at tabacchi (tobacco shops) or news kiosks throughout the city; they cost 1€ for a ticket valid for 1 1/2 hours or 2.60€ for an all-day ticket. The most useful route is no. 79, which stops at the Museo Regionale and the Duomo. Taxis are found mainly at the Stazione Centrale, at Piazza Cairoli, and along Via Calabria. For a 24-hour radio taxi, call tel. 090-2934880.
