This tour is a great chance to admire the monuments at the historical center of an ancient city, Messina, on the Ionian coast. The Cathedral Square, the Catalani's Church, the Sanctuary of Christ the King and the Church of Montalto, will be explained to you during the tour with all the distinctive traits.

The tour will start from the Cathedral Square, where you will admire the bell tower with the world's largest astronomical clock. You will continue on with a visit to the Catalani's Church, an extraordinary example of XII century Arab-Norman architecture. Afterward, the tour will continue on to the Church of Montalto, with its wonderful panoramic balcony, and the Sanctuary of Christ the King. During the excursion, you will hear the legends that characterize the Strait’s area. Some of the most famous are Scylla and Charybdis, Colapesce and City of Risa, an ancient town that suddenly sank with all its inhabitants in the waters of the major lake of Ganzirri. According to the legend, in particular climatic and atmospheric conditions, you can still see the ancient walls and hear the rolling of the bells at midnight.

You will get an up-close look at the famous feluccas, the typical boats that are still used for swordfish fishing. You will see Head Pelorus where you can admire the encounter between the Ionian and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The arm of the sea that surrounds Cape Pelorus is a protected nature reserve called Laguna of Cape of Peloro, established by the Region of Sicily in 2001. It is also a site of international importance, included in the ‘UNESCO Water Project’ since 1972. The natural reserve is host to over 400 aquatic species.
