A beautiful natural harbour full of history

Messina is a pleasant town located to the northeast of the island of Sicily.Located on the Messina Straits and with a large natural harbour, Messina is one of the busiest ports in the Mediterranean. Its strategic location just five kilometres from the Italian mainland has made it an important site for silk, textile and chemical industries and a regular a port for ferries and cruise liners.

A day away from your luxury MSC cruise ship can encompass the ancient city of Messina itself, with panoramic tour or take in towns further afield. Consult our comprehensive package of excursions to learn more about the deals available and the best way to make the most of your time onshore. A holiday stopover in Messina provides the perfect opportunity to view Europe’s highest and most famous active volcano, Mount Etna, and a visit to the Silvestri craters.

Those in search of a spiritual dimension to their vacation may like to visit the ‘picture-perfect’ town of Tindari, which is home to the ancient black Madonna. Families can offer little ones a fun day out during our beach tour, which includes a trip to the local leisure centre and Lido.

Finally, a trip to Taormina makes a lovely day out, thanks to its beautiful architecture, stunning setting, excellent shopping opportunities and ancient monuments, including a Greco-Roman theatre, cathedral and 11th century palaces.
