What to expect

Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Messina. Just a few kilometres from the Italian mainland, Messina sits on a curved harbour at the northernmost point of Sicily's Ionian Coast.

Despite the dramatic distructions that Messina has seen in the past, like the the devastating earthquake in 1908 and the mass bombing in WWII, the city managed to save many monuments and museums that are well worth a visit.

During this 2.5-hour guided tour, you will have the chance to see the most important and beautiful spots in the city, such as:
Piazza Duomo - the heart of the city - with the majestic Duomo di Messina
The statue of Don Giovanni d'Austria
The Church of SS. Annunziata dei Catalani
Via Cardines
The pictoresque Larga delle Due Fontane
The Tribunal and the University of Messina
The Church of San Camillo
The "Casa di Cristo Re"
The Sanctuary of Santa Maria di Montalto

Just one tip: don't forget to bring your camera along!
