Kudos to the tour company, “Discover Messina”. They did a fabulous job showing and explaining both the fortress of Milazzo and Greek/Roman ruins of Tindaris. Also included in the tour was the church of the Black Madonna. Our tour guide, “Chiara” set a pleasant walking pace and politely and professionally answered all our questions. Her in-depth knowledge of these sites and of ancient Mediterranean history was impressive. Furthermore, our beautiful Messina resident and historian, seamlessly integrated aspects of modern Sicilian cultural with past traditional ethos. This synergy of information brought antiquity to life and gave meaning to the artifacts we observed. Also, hat-tip to our friendly driver, “Antonio” (Tony) who safely delivered us via the narrow streets of Milazzo and Tindaris. I highly recommend this tour for its comprehensive scholastic value and breathtaking scenery.


From the cruise we took this tour. The company shore excursions was very good and very easy to deal with. Especially the guide mariaritta. She was bubbly and energetic. Would certainly recommend


Milazzo: En vehículo podrás recorrer tranquilo Milazzo y Tindari aue están muy cerca. Si eres un gran deportista y no esperas el poco transporte q hay en Milazzo deberás caminar un poco más de 12 km para llegar a Capo Milazzo. No te pierdas a mitad de camino del Castello di Milazzo ingresando por 5 €, aunque no esperes muchas explicaciones ni en textos vale la pena visitarlo, tiene las mejores vistas. Si vas caminando a Capo Milazzo (como yo) la recompensa es verdaderamente maravillosa, te espera una piscina natural bellísima. Tindari en cambio tiene una playa maravillosa que queda muy cerca de la estación de tren, sin embargo para poder ver la Madonna Nera tienes que caminar 17 km porque está en la cima. Vale la pena disfrutar de esa playa!!! Debes llevar sombrilla, agua y comida porque ni en la estación de tren hay personas!!! Lo digo en serio! Sólo una máquina para comprar pasaje y la nada. Valen la pena visitar ambos lugares y si tienes auto ni lo dudes!!!!!


Stupendo! Ci sono luoghi meravigliosi, e posti nei quali poter mangiare cibi buonissimi e tipici del luogo! 🤩
