About Messina, Sicily

The setting for Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, Messina has much to offer in the way of history. Its dramatic, boulder-filled harbor has challenged navigators since the days of Ulysses.

Messina's museum is also noteworthy for its Renaissance masterworks.

Messina isn't very exciting, take the train to Taormina, which is a really beautifully situated old town with plenty of shopping, restaurants, great views and more.

Previously been to Taormina in a private taxi with another couple which was excellent but this time used the local tour bus and train which was excellent value. Try and be in the square at midday for the chimes.

Take the ships excursion bus to Taormina as there isn't much to do in Messina. Taormina is a lovely place.

Much that you would want to see is close to the port. We took the little train tour from the square.
