What Our Customers Say:
The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...2013-11-26Andrey
It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.2013-11-26Marijke Phillips

A Quick Guide to... Messina
Messina, located in the northeast of the island of Sicily, Italy, is the third largest city as well as the capital city of the Messina province. Messina was originally named Zancle, meaning ?scythe? owing to the shape of its harbor when it was founded by Greek colonists sometime in the 8th Century. It is believed that Messina was the harbor where the Black Death first entered Europe by ships arriving from Crimea.
Because Messina has such a rich long cultural history, there are a lot of amazing sights to see in this lovely coastal city such as:
- The Cathedral, built in the 12th century
- The Church of the Annunziata del Catalani
- Santa Maria degli Alemanni, built in the early 13th century this is one of the few examples of Gothic architecture that exists in Sicily
- Sanctuary of Montevergine, where the body of St. Eustochia Smeralda Calfato is preserved.
Frequenty when cruise ships come into port, they will dock right downtown, so don?t be surprised if when visiting some of Messina?s popular shops you stumble upon a large cruise liner.
It is highly encouraged to pay a visit to the Torre Faro, a former electricity pylon that is now an observation tower that provides a 200 metre high view over Messina and the Messina Strait that will take your breath away. Be warned: if you choose to visit Torre Faro to see this breathtaking view, you should be prepared to walk up 1250 steps, and then back down again. The view will be worth it.
