Milazzo, a strip of land that extends towards the Aeolian Islands, is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The peninsula is located between two gulfs, Milazzo in the east, Patti in the west. From the Tono Bay, where the most beautiful part of the very long beach is located, the rocky part of the promontory begins, culminating in the wonderful Bay of Sant’Antonio.
The oldest evidence dates back to the Bronze and Iron Ages. Milazzo is famous for the naval battle between the Roman and Carthaginian fleets during the First Punic War.
The castle bears witness to over a thousand years of Italian history in which this place has always played a role of primary importance. On 20 July 1860 Garibaldi won the battle against the Bourbons, which was decisive for the birth of the Kingdom of Italy.
Seeing Milazzo means discovering an ancient city rich in history where many populations have succeeded, driven by the beauty of the places and the strategic position that still make it an important port, commercial and tourist destination to reach the Aeolian Islands.
