    What to Expect
    Meet your air-conditioned bus at Cathedral Square or the port terminal in Messina to start your tour.

    Among the sights, you'll see an excellent example of 12th-century Arab-Norman architecture at the Church of the Annunziata dei Catalani, and view the world's largest astronomical clock in the bell tower. Hear from your guide about Sicily's myths and folklore as you pass by the Santuario della Madonna di Montalto.

    Your tour also follows the winding roads of the Ionian coast. Stop for photo ops of traditional fishing boats and the coastal landscape at the UNESCO–listed Capo Peloro (Cape of Peloro). Then return to your original departure point where your tour ends after six hours.
