My grandmother's birth town

Messina is a major city of Sicily. It is a large seaport. It is the birthplace of my maternal grandmother. Mt. Etna rises in the background as a guard to all that makes up Sicily. Messina has its charm, and it makes a wonderful stop before you start out to visit all of Sicily. Good hotels and wonderful food. Friendly people.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Port city for jumping off to see the south and north side of Sicily
  • Cons:One crowded busy city
  • In a nutshell:Messina was home to my Grandmother. Mi Familia

    Ahhh, Sicili (See-chee-lee-ah) - they taught me how to say it there. These people DO engage - about everything - or nothing. Love it cause you can't leave it!
