TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Touring Messina
This hotel was close to the train, staff were very helpful, with limited english (not a great concern for us). First impression is its old. The decor is gothic & antique. The room was a good size, the bed a little hard. The biggest down fall is the hotel had a really strong cigarette smoke smell, couldn't stay for more than one night. Breakfast was a simple coffee & croissant, but we were able to have it early before the train.

We spent our last day in Sicily in the city of Siracusa which had a very different character than both Catania or Taormina. We were given a tour of the area. My favorite part was stopping at a famous stand and grabbing some delicious and well-needed frozen lemonade! After that we went to ...
Last day had perfect weather. We went to an ancient theater with the casual Volcano as the background scenery. Mt. Etna was huge and beautiful. Clouds covered it up and I got a quick glimpse of it. An overall amazing weekend and I was sad to leave. Definitely want to go back to Sicily some ...
... así hemos visitado la capilla del Palacio Real y las catacumbas del convento de los capuchinos. Estas catacumbas son como una casa del terror, con momias colgado por los pasillos y truenos y relámpagos de fondo dándole el toque aun mas macabro.
Nos empapamos una vez mas al volver al coche que por lo menos seguía intacto donde lo habíamos dejado ya que temíamos no haberle dado suficiente dinero al gorrilla de la zona. Nos secarnos de camino ...
