Can anyone help me find some information about any interesting places to visit in the vicinity of Messina. I will be arriving by ferry at Pozzallo early morning, I will be staying for 4 full day's there. My 1st stop will be in Sovaca. I have already been to Messina and Taormina, so I wish to visit other places which are in that area. By the way I'll be travelling with my own car. Do you have any suggestions how I would plan my itinerary and any b&b where I can stay over night. Thanks in advance Stephen
My wife and I will be arriving in Messina by cruise ship in a couple of weeks. I have a little difficulty walking but with the use of a hiking stick I get around. Because I walk at a slower pace than most, large tours are not a real option for us. Can anyone recommend a private guide/driver to take us to Taormina and the nearby areas? Are there any other options that seem worthwhile? Thanks. Alan

Hi all, We will be in Messina for about 5 hours and was wondering if there are any high adventure activities offered there? Rock climbing, repelling, canyoning, ect? If not, any great ideas on how to create a memorable big birthday in this port?? Thx!!
I'd like to take my family out to Tindari. And I understand it's not far. But I don't know the best way to contact/contract with a taxi driver who only wants a half day fare (and feels like working on Sunday). A late lunch in a village on the way back, maybe. This is MY anti-crowd, anti-Taormina notion -- we will be exhaustively covering Pompeii just days before. I'm eagar to hear all opinions. thanks.

The ship tours and almost all the Etna day tours I can find from Messina seem to go to the Silvestri spent craters and that's it. I want to go up higher and see more cool volcano stuff!
