Most Mt. Etna excursions stop at the Silvestri Craters on the lava-covered slopes, but with this exclusive tour you can reach the top of Europe’s highest active volcano with a volcanologist guide. Take a cable car and off-road vehicle to Torre del Filosofo and then continue on foot about a mile (2 kilometers) to the summit craters. Learn about the volcano’s history from your guide and enjoy sweeping views over the coastline.

Pretty impressive fountain, spent some time walking around it and viewing the many carvings while awaiting the clock tower show. Busy square that seems to be the tourist center for Messina - Duomo, Clock Tower, Neptune’s fountain, little tourist train around city stops here, etc. short walk from the cruise ship docks.

This statue has an imposing position facing the main harbour, but has suffered the ravages of time. Sadly the grandeur and splendour that once was the glory of this monument has been replaced by a rather tired and unkept appearance. The walk along the harbour to the statue is also beginning to evidence neglect.

Our tour bus happened to drive by this statue two times, and our guide made sure that we paid attention to it. After all, Neptune is the god of the sea, and we were on a cruise. So, we dared not offend him. The statues are very nice but are in a traffic area. They are also typical and not out of the ordinary or worth going out of your way for. However, if you happen to be driving around there, keep your eyes open.

We passed the Fountain of Neptune whilst on a one day stopover in Messina. We had done a self-guided walking tour armed with a fairly basic tourist map and was making our way along the harbour front. Standing opposite the yachting marina, the statue is quite impressive though a bit distant from the main town and on a busy part of the road. It stands outside what appears to be a nice looking ‘government’ building though it all looked a bit quiet on the day of our visit (mid-week afternoon). We read later that the statue represents the God, Neptune standing over the two mythical Scylla and Charybdis which in Greek mythology terrorised the straits of Messina. Continuing on from here we found a small park on the harbour side.

Like this fountain and sculpture. Did it as part of a city tour. Did a fly by and enjoyed the whole series of sculptures in the fountain. Worth a look in Messina
