Messina, Sicily, Italy Luxury Cruises

Explore the beautiful island of Sicily on a luxury cruise to Messina. This fantastic city has long been a major port since it was founded in the 8th Century BC, with a rich history reflected in the breath-taking architecture you’ll find here. That same history hasn’t always been kind, with much of the original city destroyed in a massive earthquake in the early 20th Century, before the Second World War left its own scars. Many of the treasures have emerged intact, including the gorgeous Annunziata dei Catalani Church, built in the 12th Century, and the world’s largest astronomical clock.

Messina also acts as a gateway to some of the other popular destinations on the island. Principle among these is Mount Etna, the tallest and most active volcano in European history with over 130 eruptions. Climb Etna to enjoy incredible views in every direction, giving you unrivalled landscapes to soak in. You can also visit Taormina, a charming resort town with its mix of medieval ruins and contemporary shops and restaurants. Be sure to visit the Greek Theatre here, built in the 3rd Century BC and still hosting concerts and music productions to this day.

The currency in Messina is the Euro. Messina is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +2).
