This review is NOT about the church, but about the marvelous promenade across the street from the church. From this pretty promenade, we enjoyed a wonderful panoramic view of the sea, the Italian mainland (the “toe” of the “boot”), and the hook shaped peninsula that...More

Do not be put off by trying to make your way up to this temple. The views over the Strait of Messina and the town are magnificent. The memorial inside the temple is thought provoking as it is a crypt. There is a marble sarcophagus...More

Tempio Votivo di Cristo Re is an amazing War Memorial with beautiful views of the city and harbor. It is well worth the long hike up to it. Remember to go before 13:00 as they seemed to be closing for lunch.

We are not crazy about Messina but, if you find yourself there, climb the hill up to Christo Re. You will get your exercize for the day and will have some nice views of the harbor etc.

If coming by cruise ship, your stay at port will be shorter than most stops. Luckily, there are several attractions nearby that you can walk to and spend 20-30 minutes at each. The Votive Temple of Christ the King is on a prominent hill and...More
