    Chiara was our guide and she was full of personality and information! She showed us so much that
    we never would have discovered on our own! She was especially great in answering our questions and
    giving everyone time to get to the many places we visited.We will never forget that amazing bell tower
    and the wild lion roar! We heard that her company's van had been destroyed by fire and we hope that
    the culprits are caught and that Chiara and her colleagues are able to continue with their fine work!

    Carlotta of Discover Messina was the tour guide. She was very enthusiastic and in particular was keen to point out where churches had been affected by the 1902 earthquake. Tour finished with a free granola - very nice.
