Day tour: Montalbano Elicona Sicily from Messina

0

The Montalbano Elicona Sicily day tour is one of the trips to Sicily off the beaten path, ideal if you are looking for day trips from Messina port and you want to experience the real essence of Sicily far from the most crowded tourist destinations. Here you can discover a mix of natural resources and a various number of monuments and locations, all encased in a wonderful shrine of colours, flavours and fragrances.

The medieval village of Montalbano Elicona Sicily -nominated the most beautiful Italian village in 2015- with its monumental richness is a small but essential jewel of our island. For this reason, it can easily be included in the Sicily towns to visit list.

As many other Sicily day tours and day trips from Messina, we will start our journey from Messina, reaching Montalbano Elicona Sicily after about 90 minutes of driving. Once there we will stop first in a local small cheese factory where the owners will host us for a quick tasting of the famous “provola di Montalbano”- a spun paste cheese made with cow milk. Then we will continue with the discovery of the village, having a relaxing promenade on the tiny medieval streets, exploring important monuments such as the Church of Saint Catherine, the Church of Saint “Niccolò il Vespro” and the stately castle. At the end of this Sicily day tour, we will stop in a restaurant positioned at the back of the castle of Montalbano where we will have the opportunity to taste typical products as local cheese, salami, sweets and delicious wine.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.
