Su visita a pie de 2 horas comienza en la Plaza de la catedral, bajo el hermoso campanario construido en 1933. Otros monumentos interesantes que merecen la pena son la Iglesia catalana, testimonio de estilo normando-árabe, la Galería Vittorio Emanuele, la segunda en el sur de Italia y el Monte de la Misericordia de estilo barroco. Con tantos lugares para visitar, no infravalore el Santuario de Montalto y el Santuario de Cristo Rey, la Iglesia de San Francisco, el Palacio Zanca y el Antiquarium y el Palacio de Cultura, dedicado al famoso pintor Antonello da Messina.
The 2 hour Messina Walking Tour exceeded our expectations. Communication before doing the tour was excellent and everything went very smoothly finding the location of the tour. The entire staff of Discover Messina were extremely friendly and took time to talk with us personally. Carlotta, our guide, was magnificent. She was extremely informative, knowledgeable, and understood our walking needs. Her personality was very enjoyable and made the tour exciting and interesting.
Carlotta of Discover Messina was the tour guide. She was very enthusiastic and in particular was keen to point out where churches had been affected by the 1902 earthquake. Tour finished with a free granola - very nice.
We were able to see the important sites in central Messina at a comfortable pace and stop in to an authentic local food purveyor to sample some locally grown foods. Our tour guide also showed us a piazza not listed in most guide books but we found a treasure in walking through the Piazza Municipio. She lead us to the Cathedral Piazza in time to see the noon astronomical clock performance. Afterwards, she directed us to some shopping areas, although many of them were closed for siesta.
