Messina in the northeast Sicily is the third largest city on the island just a few kilometres from the Italian mainland. Shipyards, cruise tourism and agriculture are the main resources of the city. Messina is famous for wine production and lemon cultivation. For centuries it has been a major transport hub and today it's an important gateway to and from Sicily.
Messina is a city of wide boulevards and elegant turn-of-the-century buildings of both religious and military architecture. You can visit many churches like the beautiful Church of the Annunziata dei Catalani or the historic gate of Porta Garzia at the fort Real Cittadella. Walking around the city you will also see lovely fountains, for example the Fountain of Orion near the cathedral is worth a visit.
Italy boasts a wealth of popular destinations and has something for everyone to enjoy.
Take a romantic gondola ride in Venice, see the ancient Colosseum in Rome, visit the leaning tower of Pisa, admire the many masterpieces in the Uffizi gallery of Florence or simply relax on one of the many beautiful beaches that can be found along Italy's miles of stunning coastline.
Florence is an often overlooked tourist destination. However, it is well worth a visit.The town was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and it still shows in the architecture of the city. There are many fine art galleries from famous artists - including the Galleria degli Uffizi, where you can see Boticelli's `Birth of Venus'.
The galleries themselves are often works of art, with the walls and ceiling ornately decorated with various brightly coloured murals.
