Here’s an offer you can’t refuse: Book a Carnival cruise to Messina, Italy, for the mountainous scenery made famous by The Godfather. This busy seaport is just 3 miles off the booted toe of Italy and holds Caravaggio paintings, a restored 12th century cathedral, and seafood restaurants dishing up fresh swordfish. Visit Messina on a cruise to Italy, your gateway to Sicily’s best beaches, the hill-top town of Taormina, and smoldering Mt. Etna volcano.
Watch the Orologio Astronomico clock at noon, when mechanical figures spring to life.
Take an excursion to Mt. Etna volcano from your cruise to Messina.
Be dazzled by the golden candlesticks and chalices inside Messina’s Duomo.
