Milazzo Guide

The Sicilian city of Milazzo is the third largest city in the Province of Messina and has a population of around 32,000. Located around 40 km from Sicily's capital, Milazzo is situated at the base of the peninsular that protrudes into the Tyrrhenian Sea. An important and popular sight in the city is the Castle of Milazzo, the building of which is believed to have been started by the Arabs and then enlarged by the Normans and restored by Frederick II. The castle's walls have round towers on them and also a 14th century Gothic portal. Other interesting sights include the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Rock Church of St Anthony of Padua, the Sanctuary of St Francis of Paola and the Baroque Church of the Holy Crucifix.

From the port of Milazzo ferries depart to the Aeolian Islands and Naples.


Palermo Guide

The city of Palermo is located on the Italian island of Sicily and lies on the island's north west coast and has a large and strategically important natural port, next to the Monte Pellegrino. The city is typically Mediterranean and can trace its history back to the 8th century and is today known for its Norman buildings, fabulous palaces and the hustle and bustle of its markets. Palermo's historic centre is the Quattro Canti district, which means 'Four Corners' and is where a number of the city's most spectacular attractions can be found. These include the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The cathedral's sheer size and lovely architecture really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also popular in the city is the medieval Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi and the 12th century Castello della Zisa. For visitors who enjoy the performing arts there is also the Teatro Massimo which is a recently refurbished theatre that puts on regular performances.

Ferries from the city's port depart to Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples and Tunisia.
