City Sightseeing® Messina


Messina is a beautiful and friendly city, called “The gate of Sicily”. City Sightseeing® has been operating here since 2007 and, after one year of transition, in 2009 our business is prospering; this year we have also added a second line.

The terminal of the city tour is in Piazza Duomo, the most important square in Messina, with its Cathedral. Here, most of tourists and cruisers gather every day at 12.00 o’clock a.m, to watch the show of the incredible Bell Tower Clock, the most complex astronomical and mechanical clock in the world.

The bus passes through Via Garibaldi and reaches the seafront of the Strait and the popular “Passeggiata a Mare”, a place that evokes the legend of Scilla and Cariddi, described by Homer in the Odyssey, then it goes back to the city centre.

In this tour there are so many stops that tourists can see the main places of interests, such as Vittorio Emanuele Theatre, Villa Mazzini, which houses the Municipal Aquarium of Messina with its 60 different ichthyic species of the Mediterranean, and the Regional Museum, which houses paintings by Caravaggio, Antonello Da Messina, Girolamo Alibrandi and other renowned Sicilian painters and sculptors.

This year, by taking the second line, it is also possible to reach the beautiful Sanctuary of Christ King, built on a hill where Matagrifone Castle once stood and where one of its original towers still remains. The place offers a splendid view of the Strait and the city and, for this reason, it always attracts many tourists.
