Rinella Guide

The small village of Rinella is located on the island of Salina, or Santa Marina Salina to give it its full name. Forming one of the Aeolian islands, it is around 140 km to the north east of Palermo and 70 km to the north west of Messina. Known for its caves and black beaches, and its square which was a filming location for the movie "Volcano", Rinella is also home to the island's second port.

The island is divided into three regions/towns. Santa Marina is on the eastern coast, Malfa is to the north and Leni is in the south west of the island. Rinella is located down towards the sea from Leni. Located above the village of Leni is Valdichiesa in the island's centre. Other villages on the island include Capo Faro, Pollara and Lingua.

Ferry services from the small harbour depart to Palermo and Milazzo on the island of Sicily.


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.
