Holiday Villas in Messina - Italian style accommodation
Culture and tradition are the two core values present in this holiday resort. We recommend taking a trip to a nearby village at some point during your stay in a villa in Messina. Here, you will be awarded with an insight into the more traditional way of life present in Messina, and - if you're lucky - you may well be able to sample a freshly produced local specialty. Black pork sausages are a must-try for any daring food-lover but if you prefer a more traditional menu, then the Italian restaurants located throughout the region will more than cater to your needs.
No trip to this area of Sicily is complete without a visit to Mount Etna. This famous landmark that is but a few minutes’ drive from the city is regarded as one of the most active volcanoes in the world, making it the perfect tourist site for geologists, historians and anyone who wishes to be amazed by the power of nature. Surprisingly, the slopes of Mount Etna provide a fertile soil perfect for vineyards and orchards. A visit to the lovely city Catania, the second largest in Sicily is also highly recommended. In case you are up to a longer trip, you can also go up to Calabria and visit Lamezia Terme, famous for its thermal springs, a splendid cathedral and castle ruins. Keep your eye out for a bottle of locally produced volcanic wine, the perfect souvenir for family or friends. If you're not that patient, it also makes the perfect tipple for an evening spent on the balcony of your holiday villa in Messina.
