Experience Sicily’s Charm
The Ancient Gateway to Sicily
As in the past when merciless warriors used this city to invade the island, Messina is still today the main gateway to Sicily- minus all the blood! With its distinctive curved harbour on the northern most point of Sicily, the narrow stretch of water of the Strait of Messina is the only thing that divides this island from mainland Italy.
