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. Try to visit the city's Bell Tower at the stroke of noon--the hour when one of the world's largest and most fanciful mechanical clocks springs into action. Messina's museum is also noteworthy for its Renaissance masterworks.

This was probably my favorite port. We went to Taormina and Mt. Etna on a shared tour excursion: Being on Mt. Etna was truly life changing but bring a jacket! You're 6,000 feet above sea level and it's freezing! We went to a honey farm for free samples of honey, olive oil and wines and explored the beautiful shopping town or Taormina.

Please don’t miss Mt Etna!! Simply amazing and stunning!!


Don't miss the spectacular clock display at 12 o'clock at the cathedral - it is fantastic. Some people took a train out to the beach and said it was quite beautiful.
