Welcome to Milazzo!

The peninsula of land that extends from the Sicilian coastline towards the Aeolian Islands is home to the city of Milazzo. It is not just one city, but three, which mixes many different architectural styles. Overlooking the city of Milazzo is the castle and the ancient walls. The old city center or “borgo” lies in the shadow of the Castle on the foot of the hillside and has many examples of striking medieval architecture. The modern city is found along the coastline and near the port. “Modern” relative to the “borgo”, yet some of the building in this zone are from the 1500s. The Cape of Milazzo offers amazing and unique views: from the Aeolian Islands to the white cap of Mt. Etna that reaches a height of 3,325 meters and towers over the mountain ridges of Nebrodi. It is an unforgettable site and a photographers dream and has a unique history.

Catania airport is 130 km away. Palermo airport  is 220 km away

Thank you for ensuring wide dissemination of this message.
