Reggio Calabria Messina Ferry reviews

  • "Italy to Sicily"

    I booked the ticket online and collected it at the counter with ease. There were no problems with the administration or online booking. All the staff were very helpful courteous and pleasant. The ferry was on time and we travelled rapidly to Messina where we disembarked. There are facilities for disabled people as well. No problems to report. A pleasant safe crossing of the Straits of Messina and I would recommend to all potential customers of Direct Ferries.

Messina Guide

Messina is an Italian city and is sometimes referred to as 'the door of Sicily' and lies on the Strait of Messina in the north east of Sicily. The city's port has played an important role in the city's growth and fortunes and supports tourism for the city and surrounding area and is also home to commercial and military shipyards. Since 1548, Messina has been a Roman Catholic Archdiocese and Archimandrite and is also home to the University of Messina which was founded in 1548 by Ignatius of Loyola. A popular tourist attraction in the city is the 12th century cathedral which guards the remains of King Conrad who was ruler of Germany and Sicily during the 13th century. Following a huge earthquake in 1908 the cathedral had to be almost completely rebuilt between 1919-1920 and then again in 1943 following a fire that was caused by Allied bombing during the Second World War.

Ferry services from Messina operate to one of two ports in Calabria (Villa San Giovanni and Reggio Calabria) or on a longer ferry ride to Salerno, just south of Naples.
