Guided Tour of Messina

38 reviews | 383 travellers
The activity was interesting and María Rita an excellent guide. A pity that the communication between Civitatis and the provider was not good. We were waiting at the port for "an hour" for them to come pick us up. Civitatis reported that it would be half an hour after the arrival of the cruise ship and the agency came for us an hour later than reported. A lack of respect.

Guided Tour of Messina

The tour meets close to the Messina port, where we'll begin our guided tour of this Sicilian province. Throughout the day we'll take you on a journey through the tumultuous past of this volcanic island, which has suffered from earthquakes and invasions - leaving a lasting mark on the city.

In the port, we'll spot the monument that welcomes seafaring visitors to the city - a golden statue of the Virgin Mary blessing the city, and reveal the story behind the sculpture.

Then we'll make our way to the historic centre of Messina, arriving at the Piazza del Duomo to admire the historic, 12th-century architecture of the cathedral. One of the highlights of the building is the ornamental clock tower - one of Messina's must-see sights.

Close to the cathedral is the Church of the Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani, with influences from Arab, Roman and Byzantine architecture, and built upon the ruins of an older temple to the sea God Neptune.

And as Messina is known around the world for its cannoli, we couldn't let you go without indulging your sweet tooth! finish the tour with a tasting of these local pastries, at a traditional Messina bakery. Delicious!
