Messina is the third largest city on the island of Sicily, Italy, located on the northeast corner of the island. The city is rich in history and culture, with fascinating temples and statues to visit around the city, as well as a stunning coastline. Whether you want to learn about the island's history in the museum, wonder over the amazing architecture of the buildings, visit Mount Etna where you can see the infamous volcano, go shopping around the town for a unique souvenir, or simply unwind on the beaches for panoramic views – then you can do just that during your visit to Messina.
The main shopping areas in Messina are in walking distance from the port. There are many shops offering luxury items such as designer clothes, perfume, jewellery and hand-crafted souvenirs. There are also markets in the city where you can buy homemade honey and nuts, handmade jewellery and leather goods.
The local currency is the Euro. Messina is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich meantime (GMT +1).
