Messina

Messina is the Province of Sicily, the closest to the mainland. It is located on the northeast coast of the island near the Strait of Messina, between Sicily and Calabria. Provincial capital is the city of Messina, the major port. The capital of the province is very attractive and interesting, you can admire the wonder of the surviving relics of the Cathedral of the 12th century with a bell tower, and the Orion fountain, created by one of the disciples of the great Michelangelo in the 16th century. It is in Messina that a monument to Russian sailors was erected, who in 1908 saved more than 2,000 people from the rubble, trapped there by the earthquake.
In summer, the province of Messina is one of the busiest areas of Sicily. Here is situated the main summer resort on the east of the island – Taormina (50 km from Catania.) It is known not only for its marvellous beaches, but also for its main attraction – the Greek Amphitheatre. The city is situated on the slopes of Mount Tauro at an altitude of 250 m above sea level. Taormina scenery is amazingly beautiful: azure sky, blue sea, the cliffs with countless bays and coves, mountains, valleys and towns, literally immersed in the greenery of olive and citrus groves. In Taormina the Festival of theater, music and dance is held annually, where is also awarded an international prize. A few minutes drive from the resort town of Taormina is located Giardini Naxos, where you can have a comfortable rest. There are many discos, water rides, restaurants on the coast as well as a golf club.
It is worth mentioning also Milazzo, located 44 km from Messina, on a narrow peninsula. The main attraction of the town is the citadel, built in the era of the Normans, the heart of which is a Norman castle, which is compared with the Tower of London. Milazzo has magnificent beaches stretching along the entire peninsula. From the northern tip of the peninsula, Capo di Milazzo, you can admire spectacular views of the surrounding landscape, lighthouse, Tono bay and Mount Etna.
