Messina Guide

The Italian city of Messina is the capital of, and located in, the Province of Messina and is the third largest city on the island of Sicily. It lies on the Strait of Messina, opposite Villa San Giovanni on the Italian mainland, in the north east of Sicily. The port in Messina is an important economic driver for the city's economy as it is a key component in the city and region's tourist infrastructure. It also supports both commercial and military shipyards. Agriculture is also important in the area and visitors exploring the countryside will often find oranges, lemons, mandarin oranges and olives growing. Since 1548, the city has had a Roman Catholic Archdiocese and Archimandrite seat and is home to the University of Messina which was also founded in 1548.

The city's port offers passengers ferry services across the Strait of Messina to the ports of Villa San Giovanni and Reggio Calabria in Calabria. There is also a longer crossing to Salerno, which is to the south of the city of Naples. Most ferries that arrive in Messina dock at either the Messina Marittima/Bluvia dock or at the Molo Norimberga docks on Via San Ranieri. Occasionally some ferries will dock at the Rada San Francesco di Paola I docks on the northern edge of the town.

Panarea Guide

Panarea is an Italian island that lies off the north eastern coast of the island of Sicily and is the second smallest of the Aeolian islands which are a group of volcanic islands. The island is popular with tourists who go there to enjoy its beaches and lovely scenery and for a small island, it is surprisingly well equipped. San Pietro on the island's east coast is the landing beach for the island and is also where most services and facilities are located. There is also a small port that caters for ships, hydrofoils, fishing vessels and pleasure boats.

Among the beaches on the island are Cala Junco, in the south of the island and is accessible both by sea and by land along a path that leads to the beach. Along the road to Cala Junco you can also reach the beach of Cala degli Zimmari. These are the only two beaches on the island accessible by land.

The small port accommodates ferries departing to Napoli and Milazzo.
