Messina Walking Tour
1 hr, 18 min
Stroll over via I Settembre, famous because it was from here that the European Revolution of 1848 started. Then pay homage to the Donna Rosa Donato, a valorous heroin of that time.
At 12pm, you will be below the astronomic bell tower of the Cathedral in order to admire its inner workings and the usual 'cock – crow.' Stop for a coffee break and a souvenir. Then walk down through Via Lepanto, in which there is the statue of the admiral John of Austria, the captain that in 1571 won against the Ottoman Turkish Empire. Then, have a look at the Medieval Catalani’s Church and a greeting to the Messina 'Riconoscente pel benefizio del portofrancostatue' and the Madonna della Lettera who, from the top of the San Salvatore Castle, blesses the citizens of Messina.
Visits inside the Banco di Sicilia (where there is the bust of Rosa Donato) and at the Chamber of Commerce are available only between 9am to 1pm.

What awesome tour guides!! 5 stars!
The tour was brilliant!! I definitely recommend it! The guides were friendly, highly knowledgable about the city and its history which i thoroughly enjoyed! They looked after me and it was like taking a walk with friends who were proud to show you around their town! Their passion for the city of Messina was highly evident! I would do this tour again and go on any tour run by Welcome to Me!!
