Messina highlight tour is a half day guided tour where you can admire one of the most beautiful city of the Sicily Island with a panoramic guide of the coast up to the Capo Peloro
Messina (also known as the Gateway to Sicily) is located near the extreme north-eastern tip of Sicily on the Strait that bears its name and from whose port numerous cruise ships pass. The origins date back to 750 BC. when the Greek colonists coming from Chalcis founded it with the name of Zancle (from the Greek sickle for the arched shape of its port).
With our Messina highlight tour, you will have the chance to visit the highlights of this city. Messina today extends along the entire coast and is almost totally modern, above all due to the violent earthquakes that hit it several times and the bombings that the city suffered during the Second World War.
Our tour starts with the historic center, from Piazza Duomo, with its Orion Fountain, to move on to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele III and the magnificent Teatro Vittorio Emanuele II and the entire Christ the King area. A cultural, architectural, and even spiritual Messina, like that of the Church of San Francesco d’Assisi, the first built in Sicily by the order of the same name.
Then in Piazza Cairoli, we have the chance to taste the local pastry in a famous “pasticceria siciliana” where you can have the famous “cannoli siciliani” The tour will continue with a driving panoramic guide with a private veichle of the coast up to the Capo Peloro where you can admire the famous light tower and the amazing cost of the island.
