About this tour

Guided tour of Messina, the city where two seas meet, the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ionian Sea. The city offers a splendid panorama of the Strait of Messina and the heart of Calabria. Messina was destroyed by the terrible earthquake in 1908, but the tragic memory is still alive. Messina is a completely new city, resurrected after the catastrophe by replicating a glorious past. The key to understanding the new city represents a double difficulty: multiple historical fragments necessarily flow towards the New, in a relationship in which the same new envelops them, expropriates them, never holding back from the surreal, never pausing to name them.

The legend of Scylla and Charybdis surrounds this place. One imagines the existence of two terrible monsters who lived in the Strait of Messina. The beautiful nymph Scylla was transformed into a monster with twelve feet and six heads. The monster was hiding in a cave in the Strait of Messina, on the opposite side to that of Charybdis, who devoured sailors with his mouth. The strait was navigated by Odysseus and Aeneas. Although today it offers a spectacular view from the Cristo Re panoramic square.
