Description

On this fun, informative Segway tour, discover the city of Messina, which was entirely rebuilt after the terrible earthquake destroyed it in 1908. Starting from Via Castellammare, near Via Garibaldi, next to the Catalani Church, you will go to the city's commercial center - Piazza Cairoli - and on to Piazza Pugliatti where there the Court of Justice and university are located. Next, move on to Piazza Duomo to admire the fountain of Orion and the Cathedral with its bell tower, famous for its astronomical clock unveiled in 1933 when the reconstruction of the Christian temple was finished. You will see the church S.S. Annunziata dei Catalani, with its beautiful baroque fountains in front. Nearby in Via Lepanto, see the monument dedicated to Don Juan of Austria before proceeding to Piazza Antonello, enclosed by neoclassical palaces. On the way to the medieval church San Francesco d’Assisi, admire the baroque palace Monte di Pietà. Continue through the public gardens to reach Piazza Unità d'Italia, where you will see the Palace of the Government and the fountain of Neptune by Montorsoli. From here, you will ride back to Piazza Municipio, observing the statue of Ferdinand de Bourbon and the Teatro Vittorio Emanuele along the way. Tour itinerary can be modified on-site with your guide to include, for example, shopping at Viale San Martino; a panoramic view from Montalto Church, or the North Coast Museum.
