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.

Salerno Guide

The Italian city of Salerno lies on the Gulf of Salerno, in the Salerno region of Italy. The city lies on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is close to the Amalfi Coast and is perhaps best known for being the home of the world's first medical school, the Schola Medica Salernitana. Being the cultural hub of the region, Salerno has many things for visitors to see and do. The city has some lovely pedestrian streets and large piazzas and for visitors who have a car they can easily drive around the city as traffic is not a problem and parking is available in most areas.

Salerno is located at the geographical centre of a triangle nicknamed Tourist Triangle of the 3 P (namely a triangle with the corners in Pompeii, Paestum and Positano). This provides Salerno with a unique opportunity to attract tourists who visit the city to take in sights that include the Lungomare Trieste, the Castello di Arechi, the Duomo and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana.
