Milazzo: destination or departure?
The town of Milazzo, although not large, enjoys notoriety for being the junction point towards the archipelago of the Aeolian Islands - Vulcano, Lipari, Alicudi,
Filicudi, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli - which each year gather millions of tourists from around the world. But if Milazzo can be experienced as a point of passage to other destinations,
it is also good to highlight the beauty and the historicity of this place already much appreciated by those who visit the mainland and its surroundings.
Your car rental in Milazzo will therefore allow you to discover unique and enchanting places that only Sicily can offer.
Let's start to discover Milazzo, a town located on the promontory of the north-eastern coast of the island. The place has ancient origins: founded by the Greeks in 713 BC, it was the
scene of the Punic Wars and later became an authoritative Roman city.
The city was then dominated first by the Arabs, and then by Swabians and Normans until a long Spanish governorate. In 1860 the landing of Garibaldi in Sicily led to its annexation to Italy.
Today Milazzo preserves numerous testimonies of the past populations that support its artistic and cultural importance. From the port you will easily see the castle that dominates the city,
a massive structure that after the first Byzantine layout, was enlarged and fortified by Frederick II of Swabia and later surrounded by an imposing wall during the Spanish era.
Right on the edge of the walls you will find a curious effigy: two huge eyes made of lava stone that for centuries have aroused curiosity and amazement in visitors.
The historic centre of the town pivots on the old, seventeenth-century Duomo, inside which is a spectacular stone spiral staircase. There are many religious
buildings in the ancient village, churches dating back to the late Renaissance that you can easily visit wandering through the alleys. Particularly spectacular is the complex dedicated
to San Francesco di Paola, on the hill of San Biagio, unique throughout the island.
But what makes Milazzo a truly amazing place is its Capo, that is the offshoot cliff that stretches to the sea determining the marine protected area. We are in a true naturalistic
paradise, where the typical Mediterranean vegetation of prickly pears, olive trees, junipers, and agaves gently descends towards the sea through narrow and romantic paths from which
you can admire an incredible view of the sea and the Aeolian islands.
The most famous hike is the one that will lead you to the famous Venus pool, a marine lake surrounded by rock, of unparalleled beauty. Here do not miss the sunset, it is
among the most beautiful ones, mother nature can give you!
The surrounding area
After visiting Milazzo you cannot miss its surroundings, small villages overlooking the sea that line up, one after the other, and that seem to take us back in time.
Then, let's go to Patti, a characteristic Sicilian village with pebble beaches and crystal clear sea. In addition to taking a tour of the town, full of churches and historical
monuments, we point out the Roman Villa of Patti, discovered in recent times and evidence of latifundismo already in ancient times.
In the immediate vicinity you will find Tindari. It is an unmissable natural jewel: after visiting the shrine, perched on top of a promontory from which you can enjoy an
incomparable view of the gulf, and famous for its Black Madonna destination of continuous pilgrimages, visit the Greek theatre and then descend into the lagoon. The place,
unique in the world, is an isthmus of land that ends gently in the crystal clear waters of the sea, creating the beach of Marinello.
Continue towards Palermo and stop for a dip in the clear emerald waters of Gioiosa Marea, one of the most desired tourist destinations on the east coast, from here continue
towards Brolo, a lovely mediaeval village just away from the sea with its ancient castle protecting the village, and then straight to Capo d'Orlando, for a walk to the marina
- a real local attraction - and for a stroll in the town's main avenue.
Here, sitting in one of the many bars along the avenue, you can enjoy a typical Sicilian granita that will make you fall in love with the place!
If you want to go further then it will be impossible for you not to get to Santo Stefano di Camastra, the land of Sicilian ceramics, a real joy for your eyes that will fill
with the typical Mediterranean colours to discover a true artisan excellence of a century-old tradition,you can't refrain from shopping!
