Full description
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 destructions that Messina has seen in the past, like the the devastating earthquake of 1908 and the mass bombings of WW II, 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 the following: Piazza Duomo - the heart of the city - with its majestic Duomo di Messina, the statue of Don Giovanni d'Austria, the Church of SS. Annunziata dei Catalani, via Cardines, the picturesque Larga delle Due Fontane, the tribunal and the University of Messina, the Church of San Camillo, the Casa di Cristo Re and the Sanctuary of Santa Maria di Montalto. Just one tip: don't forget to bring your camera along.
