Explore the ancient city of Tyndaris on a guided day trip that includes Messina

Messina was once called Zancle by the Greeks due to its sickle-shaped harbour but today is more often called "the gate of Sicily", as it is the first city that visitors see when they arrive in Sicily from the Italian mainland. However, far from being a door to the other cities of Sicily, Messina itself has much to offer, which you can discover, along with Tyndaris, on this fascinating day trip that is a real treat for those intrigued by ancient history.
