How to do I get from Messina to Reggio calabria

by versage

I will be arriving in messina on a cruise ship and was wondering how to get to Reggio calabria...

Re: How to do I get from Messina to Reggio calabria

By ferry + train. Details and times in English here:

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

Takes from around 1h 20min, from Messina Marittima station, with one change from ferry to railway station at Villa San Giovanni.

One-way fare is not given but the more expensive express train from Villa S. Giovanni > Reggio di Calabria is only 12 euro,...regional trains will be much less (probably around 7 euro at a guess). Ferry won't cost you much either.

In Italian, but easy to work out. One-way fare 4.30 euro.

There's no need to take the ferry or ferry/train as you can take the hydrofoil and be there in 30 minutes. Check the timetable here http://www.metromaredellostretto.it/index.php?lng=1

Travel Tips for Messina

THE OLD LAVATORY IN CEFALU' ...

by arkadia

THE OLD LAVATORY IN CEFALU'
This picture show the old lavatory in Cefal├╣ on the North shore of Sicily. Here, all the women of the fishing village used to come and wash. There is a stream that comes directly from the ocean into this 'corte' (little place in between the houses).
It's very interesting to see how it works.

Fresh Fruit and Conversation

by travelgourmet

Messina is a large port city, the gateway to Sicily from the mainland of Italy, with the port filled with water vessels from the rowboats to the large cruise ships, but walk a couple of blocks inland and the streets come alive with homes, businesses, and vendors of food. I always find the fruit vendors carts are most helpful to satisfy the thirst one builds up from walking a city.

Plucking a fresh orange or an apricot from the cart, will not only cleanse the palate and refresh you, but a world of conversation with the vendor as you attempt "how much" in your limited Italian to pay for it. Not only do they give you the answer " in English" but will act as if they knew you for years. What a neat way to learn about the people and city you are visiting. In Messina, the carts come alive with conversation.

Lidi di Mortelle

by isolina_it

In a place called Mortelle, a few kilometres from Messina you can find seaside resorts. The inhabitants of Messina love to spend their summer vacations there.

These resorts provide many services from beach activities to restaraunts so that people can spend long periods of time whithout having to worry about anyting before a unique scenary of the Strait Messina.

The most known they are:

Lido di Mortelle
Lido del Tirreno
Lido Spiaggia d'Oro

by LysDor


Its a more or less one hour drive by car from Taormina on the A18 motorway with lots of tunels. The city itself was a bit of a disapointment after the picturesque Taormina except for those few sights and the harbour. From there you have access to Eoli islands, did not go this time and of course mainland.

Messina has often been associated with its disasters. The bubonic plague was brought to Europe on a ship that arrived in Messina, and several earthquakes have destroyed parts of the city over the centuries. The most destructive was that of 1908. It also got its nickname "The City of Ghosts" when the Allied bombardment Messina in 1943!



God first made the world and then he made the Straits of Messina to separate men from madmen. - Sicilian proverb
