Messina, Sicily Cruises


Messina, Sicily overview

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.

We went to Taormina and the Blue Grotto. One of my favorite ports. Taormina is breathtakingly beautiful, we did lots of sightseeing and shopping and then took a boat ride to the Blue Grotto where the water was an unbelievably beautiful blue color. Then they dropped anchor and we were able to swim around the boat. When we returned to the boat the captain served Prosecco to everyone and played Italian music. It was just wonderful.
