The short section to Porto Empedocle was closed to passengers in 1976 and since then has only seen some freight trains and some special/touristic passenger trains, but has never been closed.

Some years ago it appeared on Trenitalia's official timetable, with trains shown as running only on two days each February. Certainly the least frequent regular (i.e. appearing in an official timetable, not counting special journeys not published in printed timetables) passenger railway in Italy, and maybe in the world.

No, it is a closed line and the 'Ferrovie Kaos' group try to promote and recover this line through this special events with a touristic tour into archeological park of 'Valle dei Templi' (World's UNESCO Heritage)

Venosta Valley electrification plans revealed
Friday, September 18, 2015



PLANS for the electrification of the 60km Merano - Malles Venosta Valley line in northern Italy were presented to local mayors on September 17 by South Tyrol provincial councillor for mobility Mr Florian Mussner and the president of South Tyrol Transport Authority (STA) Mr Martin Ausserdorfer

The line reopened in 2005, 25 years after it was closed by Italian State Railways (FS), and ridership has surged over the last decade to around 2 million passengers a year

I intend to visit Sicilia by train.

Does exist offers (unlimited trips on route)?

Or, I can change the regional train on the route, but no new ticket? Example: route Letojanni - Catania. Stop in Taormina, pictures, and the next regional train to Catania, with same ticket, Letojanni - Catania.

Don't know about any subscription, and I think there isn't.

Monthly ticket surely exists but may not suit you.

The answer to the second question should be yes: regional train tickets are based on kilometers, hence if you buy a 60km-ticket from city A to city B and decide to stop in city C which is in those 60km, you can board another train to reach city B after.

Yep, it should be so.
