What to expect
Meet your air-conditioned bus at Cathedral Square or the port terminal in Messina to start your tour. Among the sights, you'll see an excellent example of 12th-century Arab-Norman architecture at the Church of the Annunziata dei Catalani, and view the world's largest astronomical clock in the bell tower. Hear from your guide about Sicily's myths and folklore as you pass by the Santuario della Madonna di Montalto. Your tour also follows the winding roads of the Ionian coast. Stop for photo ops of traditional fishing boats and the coastal landscape at the UNESCO–listed Capo Peloro (Cape of Peloro). Then return to your original departure point where your tour ends after six hours.

Messina wow! Chiara our Guide Wow!
Oct 2019
Chiara was our guide & Antonio our driver. The vehicle that picked us up was very clean Antonio a very competent driver & very pleasant. Chiara is an amazing lady, her knowledge of Messina is vast we saw so much & learned many interesting facts. We were so impressed we booked a second tour with them. On the day of our tour there was a street food festival in Messina Chiara accompanied us to the festival & walked around with us explaining how the festival worked, this was a surprise extra

Another exciting day with Discover Messina
May 2019 • Couples
I had used this company a year ago and when we found ourselves coming back to Messina in 2019 they were naturally my first choice. I asked if we could do something different this year and perhaps do their boat tour up the coast. Katia and her team did not disappoint. The tour she put together for us exceeded all of our expectations. The boat operator she choose was excellent. She kept the tour at a pace that all small group felt comfortable with. Highly recommend them

IT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Sep 2018
It had been cancelled a few days before I left for Sicily.
So I can't really rate this tour. But I would have loved visiting Messina with a guide.
