Best Tour Of Our Cruise

We were met right off our cruise ship. We joined our guide, Maria Laura, and jumped into the van with another couple from our ship. Maria Laura took us to many stops in the city, telling us the history, and interesting facts about Messina. One stop was for lunch, where I tried the local calzone. And another stop was at the bakery for cannnoli. After touring the city, we traveled outside the city, where Maria took us to the lakes. Our next stop was to the museum, where Maria gave us A personal guide there. Lastly, we went to Messina Cathedral and the Astronomical Clock to finish our tour. With plenty of time before our ships departure, we still had time to shop around the drop off at the port. Just A really pleasant day. We highly recommend this tour with Maria Laura, who answered all of our question. She really made the tour enjoyable.
