Norman structure, Greek influences and typically Sicilian air are the three souls that characterise Messina, where we stop over during our Costa Cruise.

This Sicilian city, proud of its ancient history, is a landmark that cannot be lost. The port of Messina, with her channel and characteristic lighthouse, will remind you of Homer’s epic. The stop in Messina offers cultural tours and excursions that will offer you some pleasant surprises. For example, you can visit the largest astronomical clock in the world featuring the zodiac signs. The picturesque Cathedral of Messina, a typically Norman structure, is well worth a visit. While the many villages around the city seduce you with the beauty of their simplicity.

Not to be missed:

• Bell Tower of Messina

• The Church of the Santissima Annunziata dei Catalani

• The Dome
