If you come in Sicily and your are wandering about in Messina what to see or in Messina what yo do, you should think about this sea experience, sailing on the legendary waters of the Strait of Messina.
The encountering of the two seas, the vortex and the currents, Scilla and Cariddi, the immersions without an end of Colapesce, the breathless views of Fata Morgana, the sickle of Orion thrown in this navel of the world who gave birth to the vast area of the port of Messina, are only a few of the fascinating stories that you can discover sailing this part of the Sea. Here saints and heroes left their prints: from Hercules to Eolo, from Odisseo to Enea, from Saint Paul to King Arthur, from Richard Lion Head to Giuseppe Garibaldi.
The Strait of Messina is for sure one of the Messina Italy attractions to include in the list of Messina what to see.
With this Messina shore excursions, let yourself be lulled by the waves, feeling part of our seafarers, admiring the seducing landscape of Capo Peloro, of the Port were it stands the stele of the “Madonna”, visiting the channels of the lakes of Ganzirri and Mortelle; where you will see the mussel growers, then continue towards the cliff of Scilla, stopping at the Port of Chianalea, and visit the fishing village with a tasting of bread and local swordfish.
You cannot give up to a deep in the beautiful waters of the Strait, swimming into the crystal clear waters, observing the swordfish fishing- experience the thrill of the deep-sea fishing, driving a speedboat who flies above the waves, the sunsets, the photo, the life. All unique experiences to live, listen, feel, try the fantastic marine universe of this portion of paradise on earth capable of offering you particular emotions.
As Francesco says (our collaborator): “may be difficult to understand the sea, but it is sure that it will teach you how to understand yourself, offering a smile.”
