Staying in Zafferano Etnea

Been looking at villas in Zafferano Etnea. Could I get there from Taomina or Catania via bus? If based there could I get to Etna, other top spots by bus? Would I be better off staying in Nicolosi? Can you travel between Nicolosi, Zafferano Etnea and Mascalucia easily? I keep reading lots and being persuaded by new areas! In theory we could base ourselves anywhere, arriving by train into Messina early August next year and then we have a week. I fancy basing myself somewhere and either buses to make day trip with 2 kids. Trying to avoid hiring a car but could... So much to choose from! Help...

Welcome to Sicily Jo S!

Etna flank towns aren't typically optimal bases for day trips via public transport.

If you decide against hiring a car, then select a base destination with convenient public transport, especially if you intend day trips.
