Syracuse is served by a network of buses run by AST (tel. 840-000323; www.aziendasicilianatrasporti.it). Buses leave from the center of Syracuse for Piazza della Posta, which lies across the bridge on Ortygia Island. The best place to catch a bus in Syracuse proper is Piazza Marconi (also called Foro Siracusano). The most frequented routes are nos. 21 to 23, which also stop at the rail depot.
Sometimes it's better to call a taxi (tel. 0931-69722). The fare from the train station to Ortygia is about 10€.
