Cities and Towns in Sicily

Very people people ever talk about Messina, although it is one of Italy's most important port towns and definitely one of Sicily's most important commercial centers and there are dozens of ferry departures between mainland Italy and Sicily every single day of the year.  

Messina is where most cruise ships land when docking and from here the big cruise lines offer many excursions from, however in terms of places to base your stay in Sicily, there are far better places nearby Messina to stay in and this city is really just a "jumping" off pad so-to-speak in so far as your visit through Sicily is concerned.

We have a number of excursions from Messina to consider if you are coming from a cruise ship and you can visit our Shore Excursions section for more information and/or get your travel agent to contact us at for what to do if you are visiting this port of Sicily

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
