Messina is a harbour on the eastern coast of Sicily, a short ferry crossing to mainland Italy lying to the east. Due to the several earthquakes that have struck the area on several occasions, the city is almost completely modern. The city is the starting point for tours and trips to Taormina and Mount Etna, both of which are truly unforgettable. Admire the fountain in the Piazza Duomo, the monument to the Immaculate Madonna, and the Duomo itself with its distinctive facade that is adorned with marble and reliefs depicting everyday events of fourteenth century life.

If you are in the square at noon, you can witness the world's largest astronomical clock come to life with mechanical figures and music. The majestic Cristo Re Cathedral is also worth a visit, with its domed spire and yellow stone walls. The Regional Museum, one of the top sights, is noteworthy for its Renaissance master works. Appreciate the architecture of the churches and sanctuaries, especially the Cathedral, while the Cappuccini Monastery and Savoca are interesting historical sites. There are also some delightful fountains in the Botanical Garden at the local university.

A great statue of the Virgin Mary by the harbor displays the inscription meaning "We bless you and your city". This is a quotation from a letter which, according to legend, Mary gave to the Christians of the city. For nature lovers, Messina also provides destinations of considerable interest. From the city you can easily reach the Peloritani Mounts, surrounded with green woods and dotted with old farmhouses and small villages (Basicò, Tripi, Mazzarà, San Andrea and others). This is an area offering tourists the chance to spend time in a unique environment, and to enjoy home cooked meals and excellent local wines.
