Messina Private Shore Excursions

Messina tours, Messina private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Sicily's magnificent Ionian Coast draws visitors from all over the world. Any traveler who arrives at the port city of Messina should travel south along the scenic coastal road to Taormina, an almost perfectly preserved medieval town perched on a terraced hillside. A private Messina shore excursion with a local guide will ensure you see the Ionian Coast's most compelling sights.

Taormina's most famous draw is the fabulous Teatro Greco - the most dramatically situated Greek theatre in the world. You can catch a performance in this ancient theatre that seems to hang suspended between sea and sky. Wander the winding streets of this charming town, as your guide explains the area's history, culture and art. At nearby Mt. Etna National Park, you can see the deserts of lava and alpine forests that flank Europe's largest and most active volcano.

Your guide is keen to customize a private Messina shore excursion to suit your unique travel interests in this beautiful region of Italy.
Tour Guide Legal Requirements
If the nature of the tour is that the guide is 'interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of an area', Italy requires the guide have a guiding license. A person giving tours such as the 'best nightlife spots', 'shopping and fashion tour' or 'restaurant tour' for example, does not require a license. This definition follows the European standard for tour guiding (CEN).

To become a Licensed Tourist Guide, candidates must pass an examination given by the local public tourist authorities to assess and test their knowledge of the area in terms of its history and geography, its art and architecture, its museums and art galleries, churches, its environs and cultural features. As part of the requirements, candidates must also prove their knowledge of each foreign language they applied for with oral and written tests. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.
Deboarding Requirements
Please check with your local Italian consulate for up to date visa requirements for cruise ship passengers.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
