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.

Great tour
We had a great time wandering around Messina’s old town. Margarita was an excellent guide. The
tour showed us various historical sites. Although the hike to the top of the town was challenging for us,
the views from the church was perfect. We highly recommend this tour.

Messina Sicily walking tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Katia who presented us with a clear picture of Messina’s transitional situation while exemplifying the strong heart and soul of Sicily.
The tour involves uphill walking and numerous stairs but lovely views.
An enjoyable small wine tasting was optional.
The cannoli Katia offered us at the end of our tour was the best ever!
