Messina Guide

Messina is the third largest city on the island of Sicily, Italy and the capital of the province of Messina.
Messina is known as the ‘door of Sicily’ and with its port shaped like a sickle, it has always been a trading city. Situated close to the Peninsular, there has been busy thoroughfare between Messina and the Mainland, over the centuries.
Today the city is growing and developing along the coast. Due to destruction from violent earthquakes and Second World War bombardment, modern Messina is constructed with safety in mind with wide streets and relatively low buildings.
