Gateway to Adventure

The Porta Messina is one of the main entrances to the incredible town of Taormina, and is as interesting a sight as any of the architectural sights within the town. Restored at the beginning of the nineteenth century, it was raised in honor of Ferdinand IV or Bourbon.

The arch sits at the beginning of Main Street, and opens right onto a welcoming site for tourists, full of cafes and shops. Many quality hotels can be found near this gate.
