What to expect

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

Despite the dramatic destruction that Messina has seen in the past, like 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, and many more.

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