Good afternoon. I'm hoping to get to Sicily in April, and the flight times and prices to Bari are the best to that region, and I had expected that it would be fairly straightforward to travel by train from Bari down to Villa San Giovanni and across the straits. However, looking at Italiarail, the quickest journey takes nearly 12 hours! Getting to Sibari (which I was expecting to be on the way from Bari) is over 35 hours, changing in Milan! Either I'm looking for timetable information in the wrong place or there is no longer a worthwhile service on the lines south and west from Bari (even Bari to Taranto has no service before 1425). Could somebody help please? It's not an area I know (yet), and I may have to change my plans significantly!
