THROUGH MESSINA, DISCOVERING ITS PAST … IN SEGWAY PT!
8 participants maximum
Messine, entirely rebuilt after the terrible earthquake that destroyed it in 1908, appears as a modern city, thanks to its boulevards that draw a regular urban planning. But the visitor who is aware of any detail will discover the history of the city aboard his Segway PT.
Starting from Via Castellammare -GPS 38°11’29.2"N 15°33’22.3"E-, near Via Garibaldi, next to the Catalani Church, we will go to Piazza Cairoli –commercial centre of the town- and from here we will reach Piazza Pugliatti where there are the Court of Justice and the University. After that we will go to Piazza Duomo to admire the fountain of Orion and the Cathedral with its bell tower, famous for its astronomical clock unveiled in 1933 when the reconstruction of the Christian temple was finished. We will reach the church S.S. Annunziata dei Catalani passing in front of the baroque fountains. Close to this church, in Via Lepanto, we will see the monument to Don Juan of Austria and then we will proceed to Piazza Antonello closed by neoclassical palaces.
On the way that goes to the medieval church San Francesco d’Assisi we will admire the baroque palace Monte di Pietà. After that we will get into the public gardens and we will reach Piazza Unità d’Italia where there are the Palace of the Government and the fountain of Neptune by Montorsoli. From here we will move back to Piazza Municipio paying attention to the statue of Ferdinand de Bourbon and the Teatro Vittorio Emanuele.
It is possible to extend the visit by agreeing any changes with CSTRents staff on site. Among the possible extensions we suggest: 1) Shopping - Viale San Martino; 2) Panoramic view - Montalto Church; 3) North Coast - Museum.
