The cathedral of Messina is one of the oldest churches in Sicily and its bell tower contains the world’s largest astronomical clock, which was made in Strasbourg. The port is multifunctional and extremely competitive: mooring facilities are available for ships of up to 300 metres and it will be further improved with a new maritime passenger station and vast areas for buses and shore services.
Milazzo is a charming little town on the Tyrrhenian coast, lying at the beginning of a peninsula stretching towards the Aeolian Islands. Here you will ﬁnd old churches, Palazzi and the fortiﬁed Citadel which stands dramatically on the ruins of the primitive Greek, Roman and Byzantine settlements. Both ports also offer a number of interesting routes including cultural, shopping, eating and drinking and searelated leisure activities.
