This excursion will be a really fascinating experience because it will allow you to go, in the space of a few hours, from Sicily to Calabria, travelling from the island to the Italian peninsula , crossing the Straits of Messina by ferry - a lovely journey across the blue sea with hills on either side.
New travel services will pick you up from your hotel in one of our luxurious cars and take you to the port of Messina, where we will drive right onto the ferry heading for Villa San Giovanni, and then Reggio Calabria.
Once on board the ferry, a beautiful and very romantic panorama appears in front of us, embracing both Italy and Sicily, separated by only 3 kilometres of sea, framed by the green hills on either side.
After half an hour of travel we reach Villa San Giovanni, and from there we will drive to Reggio Calabria where, thanks to the information given to you by our drivers, you can visit, in your own time, the National Archeological Museum. This museum contains important collections from Grecian times and the famous Riace Bronzes, two very beautiful Greek sculptures discovered accidentally by fishermen in 1972 in the sea near the town of Riace, only 200 metres from the coast and at a depth of 8 metres.

When you have finished your visit to the museum, we will take you by car to the sea-front of Reggio Calabria, said to be one of the most beautiful in Italy because of its stunning views along the coast of Sicily, where you can have a quick snack, then we will head to Villa San Giovanni to take the ferry back to Sicily.
Although almost totally destroyed by a terrible earthquake in 1908, Messina still manages to retain some traces of its past, such as ornate fountains and buildings that recall the Spanish domination.
Here, thanks to the advice given by our drivers, you can visit on foot the small and pleasant historical centre, a main shopping area full of elegant shops, and then the attractive Cathedral square, with its characteristic bell tower - the biggest mechanical and astronomical clock in the world. After that, we will drive you up into the hills for a last, magical look across the Straits.
At the end of this full day tour we will take you back to your hotel, full of incredible images and memories that you will always remember.
