Most people who hear of Messina think of Roman ruins, wartime invasions, Carthage, who knows what kind of antiquated legend. While this is a huge part of any visit to the city, fun sit atop the city's best attractions too. After a visit to the fantastic churches, squares, fountains, are best viewed from a table at a cafe, a traditional bar, while dancing in the streets. This is a fun place. This is Messina's small gift.
