About

Messina is a city located in the Northeast of Sicily, on the the Strait of Messina, a natural narrow passage between the Easter tip of Sicily and the Western tip of Calabria.

The spectacular passage connects the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ionia Seas: its beauty has been inspiring stories and legends for centuries! Messina's foundation dates back to the 8th century BC and over time it has collected precious monuments and unique cultural habits. 

The greatest richness of the region is definitely the extraordinary natural richness of the sea: the marine currents that flow into the strait favour the abundance of sea life. You can dive in the depths of the limpid sea to explore underwater gorgeous flora and fauna, relics, and ruins from ancient civilisations. From Messina you enjoy excursions over land and sea to the Aeolian islands, a volcanic archipelago listed in the UNESCO's World Heritage List. 

Not far from Messina you can find the Alcantara Gorge a canyon with black lava walls 50 meters high: here you can experience thrilling canyoning activities in uncontaminated nature. In the region of Messina you can practice many outdoor activities: trekking, mountain biking, paragliding, quad driving and numerous other exhilarating activities!
