Province of Messina in Sicily

The province of Messina in the northeast of Sicily

The province of Messina is rich in beautiful places like the exclusive Taormina in the east or the beautiful towns of Milazzo, Capo d'Orlando and Oliveri on the northeast coast. Unique seaside resorts with miles of beaches like Laghetti di Marinello, a lot of nature with an incredible tree population in the Nature Reserve Nebrodi and archaeological legacies from many eras await you here.

In the northernmost part of the province of Messina are the Aeolian Islands. Particularly noteworthy here are the islands of Vulcano, Lipari and Stromboli.

For those who prefer to travel away from mass tourism, the mountain villages of Novara di Sicilia and Montalbano Elicona are recommended. From here, hikes can be made to the Argimusco Nature Park with its megaliths, the Sicilian Stonehenge. We also recommend a visit to the Alcantara Gorge.
