Catania: Shore Excursion Along the Messina Coast; Tyndaris & Cefalù

City Tour

Luxury Limousine experience. Full day 8 hrs


Departure from Messina and return to Messina.


We have chosen a magnificent tour to drive you along the northern coast line with wonderful roads overlooking the Ionian sea and over the Eolie's Islands.


We will stop first and visit Tyndaris, which began as a settlement back in the Bronze Age (about 1500 B.C). We will see the very important Christian Sanctuary that sits high on the hill above the city: it is famous for its black Madonna statue that draws visitors from afar and gives it its name, the Sanctuary of the black Madonna.


We then take a drive to visit Cefalù, a charming unspoiled village with winding, narrow, medieval streets and delightful restaurants overlooking a rocky coast. The most important monument is the Dome of Cefalù which was begun in 1131 by Roger II and it was intended as the principal religious seat in Sicily; also of interest is the museum "Mandralisca".


If we have enough time, we may drive a little more along the coast line to get to the charming village of Santo Stefano di Camastra, filled of several ceramic shops and colored pottery.
