Among our Messina tours from port, this day tour combines two beautiful destinations of Sicily: the popular Taormina and the less-known Messina Sicily. Our tours from Messina port are perfect if you are planning to visit Sicily on a cruise ship.

Starting from Messina cruise port, after almost 50 minutes, we will reach the famous Taormina and have a Taormina excursion with an enchanting walk on Corso Umberto, the main street of the Ionian pearl. Spectacular visions will unfold in our eyes, surrounded by a unique and exclusive atmosphere where the modernity of the high fashion boutiques, restaurants and handicraft shops are in perfect union with the antiquity of the palaces and monuments. You will admire suggestive squares surrounded by breathtaking views, with Mt Etna and the coast of Giardini Naxos in plain sight. Also tasting an authentic Sicilian cannolo or a delicious arancino will be a worth living experience. Then we will come back to Messina Sicily where you will have a tour of this beautiful city. We will start from the amazing historical center with the famous astronomical clock of the Cathedral of Messina. Then the Messina tour continues driving along the coast to reach Capo Peloro, the closest point of Sicily to the mainland and a magical place where to appreciate the mythical waters of the Strait of Messina.
