Introducing Messina holidays 2020

At the most north-eastern point of the Mediterranean island of Sicily sits the harbour town of Messina. With its captivating culture and rich history, Messina holidays offer the ideal getaway for those seeking more than a laid-back break. Known as the door to Sicily, Messina was regarded as little more than a trading city for many years. Nowadays, this coastal gem is ever-growing and ever-developing, attracting visitors with its vibrant festivals and historical celebrations as well as its spectacular surroundings. Mainland Italy can be viewed across the Strait of Messina beyond the port and is only a short ferry crossing away. Whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in its fascinating museums or spend your time sampling the delicious cuisine of Italy, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for on holidays to Messina.

Wine and Dine

 Known for its delicious ice-creams and scrumptious patisseries, as well as serving up some of the best traditional Sicilian and Italian dishes, you’ll want to give everything a try in Messina. For a taste of something sweet, head to Bar de Luca, where some of the town’s best gelato, granita and brioche is on the menu. La Tonnara are known for their sublime seafood and Sicilian specialties, so if you fancy dishes that are as popular with the locals as the tourists, why not give it a try? If you’re looking for a romantic dinner spot serving traditional Italian fare, Ristorante Bellavista should be at the top of your list. With enchanting views overlooking the Stretto Marcello, it’s the perfect location for an intimate dinner for two.

Messina also has a rich history in wine production and is home to many of Sicily’s finest wineries and vineyards. Don’t leave without trying a glass of Faro if you’re a red wine enthusiast, as Messina is the hometown of this great red.

Top Attractions

While its beautiful backdrop is likely to be the main focus of your holidays in Messina, there are plenty of activities to take part in while you’re here. As with many areas of Italy, there are vast squares and piazzas to explore, with the Piazza Del Duomo one of the most beautiful. Opposite is where you’ll find the Duomo, a charming cathedral well worth a visit. Originally built in the 12th century, the structure has been re-built several times but remains a particularly striking addition to your must-see list. The Bell Tower and Astronomical Clock provide a captivating display everyday at 12pm that visitors to Messina must catch a glimpse of. Messina also provides a great base for discovering surrounding areas, with Milazzo not too far away. Catch the ferry to Reggio di Calabria for a day trip discovering Calabria’s largest city. Explore the castle with its ancient ruins or wander around some of the charming churches in the town to unearth some of Messina’s fascinating history.
