Discover how to spend an unforgettable Christmas in Messina

Natale a Messina

Messina is a city that offers many reasons of interest and charm, especially during the Christmas period when it transforms into a magical and welcoming place, rich in lights, colors, sounds, and flavors. Here are some suggestions on what to do and see in this splendid Sicilian city to make your Christmas in Messina a unique and memorable experience:

    • Visit the Nativity scene in the city center at Piazza Cairoli and admire the Christmas lights that adorn the streets and squares of Messina’s historic center, creating a fairytale and romantic atmosphere. You can also shop at the markets, where you’ll find typical and artisanal products, perfect for your Christmas gifts.
    • Discover the 4 enchanted villas: the Christmas lights at Villa Dante, the Christmas Village at Villa Mazzini, the Enchanted Forest at Pineta Montepiselli, the world of fairy tales at Villa Sabin. You can easily move around with traveling buses with music and Santa Claus touring the city’s neighborhoods.
    • Visit the Cathedral of Messina, the main place of worship in the city, which houses valuable works of art such as the baptismal font, the pulpit, the wooden choir, and the treasure. Don’t miss the spectacle of the Astronomical Clock, which every day at 12 rings the bells and displays statues of historical and religious figures of the city.
    • Take a stroll along the promenade of Messina, where you can admire the breathtaking view of the Strait of Messina and take beautiful photos. You can also board the ferry that connects Messina to Villa San Giovanni and enjoy a mini-cruise on the strait, perhaps at sunset when the sky is painted with wonderful colors.
    • Indulge in the gastronomic specialties of Messinese cuisine, enriched with typical dishes of the Christmas period such as fried cod in batter, pasta ca’ muddica, roasted kid, cannoli, bianco e nero. You can taste these delicacies at one of the many restaurants in Messina.
    • Attend the Midnight Mass at the Cathedral of Messina, a tradition deeply felt by the people of Messina, who gather to celebrate the birth of Christ and listen to the singing of the Pastoral.
    • This Christmas 2023, don’t miss the show by Pooh “Friends Forever” on December 28th and New Year’s Eve in Piazza Duomo with THE GOOD FELLAS and DJ SET BY RADIO ITALIA WITH DJ PAOLETTA.
