Walking history of Messina

The most difficulty we had was being in the correct place to meet our guide as there were bus guides wearing the same orange scarves. They and port security were very helpful! Our guide gave us the choice of walking along the lower part of the city or the upper portion. We chose the upper and were rewarded with a fabulous view of the harbor entrance, our ships, the opposite shore and a history of the church itself.There are a LOT of steps to navigate taking the same route both ways, so be prepared for that.
She timed it all so we could see the church clock tower display at noon as well as a tour of the interior of church itself.
She explained everything in both English and Spanish.
We didn’t stay for the sweets as we needed to return to our ship. Our tour lasted about 3 hours.

Great tour with an energetic and knowledgeable guide

This was a great, easy tour with an energetic and knowledgeable guide. As we walked off the cruise ship there stood our guide with our name on a sheet and from there we took off to walk and learn about this beautiful city. Easy to book online at a very reasonable price. We loved the tour. My only negative is why oh why do people with mobility issues book a two hour walking tour.

Must See Messina Clock Tower and Walking Tour!

Claudio (hope I have his correct name) was our guide and did a wonderful job of explaining the history of Messina on this 2 hour small group walking tour. The highlight was the clock tower show at noon, a must see when in Messina. Gelato sample at the end of the tour was a refreshing and unexpected treat! Our group was about half English-speaking and half Spanish-speaking, and Claudio handled the situation well, explaining each sight fluently in both languages. A lot of walking involved, but not difficult at all.

Very informative tour
Our guide, Chiara, was very knowledgeable and energetic. The sites were interesting and the bell tower
show at noon is not to be missed. There are steps to climb during the tour but otherwise it is easy
walking. The cannoli at the end of the tour was delicious.
