Great choice of shops, bars and restaurants, the place to see and be seen. Lots of people watching opportunities well into the night. Beautiful buildings, well lit and lots going on

The perfect example of this is; Lorenzo Camarda Luxurious Boutique - an artisan shoemaker where the most exquisite (and comfortable) hand-made shoes/boots are sold by this family boutique...More

I have never arrived at the port. I assume you are talking about Messina . I should think there's are taxis there but at what cost I have no idea what they will charge.
