Milazzo & Tindari Sicily: the heritage experience

(3 Reviews)
  • Private Tour
  • From 7 hours
  • Jan 1' - Dec 31'

Description

Milazzo and Tindari Sicily are places of devotion, archaeology, military and maritime power: let’s experience these two towns with their historical and impressive heritage. The ancient Greek colony of Tyndaris is today a famous religious destination due to the Byzantine simulacrum of the Black Madonna of Tindari, held in the majestic Sanctuary. Discover the rich archaeological area and the Antiquarium where you can live the Greek and Roman lifestyle of ancient times: in Tindari you will visit the ruins of a villa decorated with precious mosaics and equipped with a thermal plant. What do you think about a thermal bath?

Located in front of the archipelago of the Aeolian Islands, the town of Milazzo is characterized by the ancient village (Borgo Antico) dominated by the fortress, where we can experience the medieval history featured by various populations that built the Citadel or the Castle in different phases: Normans, Swabians and Spaniards left their marks over the centuries.

A truly educational and enlightening experience, with spectacular views!

Kudos to the tour company, “Discover Messina”. They did a fabulous job showing and explaining both the fortress of Milazzo and Greek/Roman ruins of Tindaris. Also included in the tour was the church of the Black Madonna. Our tour guide, “Chiara” set a pleasant walking pace and politely and professionally answered all our questions. Her in-depth knowledge of these sites and of ancient Mediterranean history was impressive. Furthermore, our beautiful Messina resident and historian, seamlessly integrated aspects of modern Sicilian cultural with past traditional ethos. This synergy of information brought antiquity to life and gave meaning to the artifacts we observed.

Also, hat-tip to our friendly driver, “Antonio” (Tony) who safely delivered us via the narrow streets of Milazzo and Tindaris.

I highly recommend this tour for its comprehensive scholastic value and breathtaking scenery.
