June 11 Messina to Letojanni (Day 258)

We had leftover pizza for breakfast then headed to the ferry. Again, don’t trust Google maps! After wandering around for 10 minutes trying to figure out the directions on Google maps I finally asked the ticket agent at the train station where to catch the ferry. He said “go through the station and it’s right there”! Easy peasy! Google maps was sending us to the automobile lane for the car ferry! We walked on with all the other foot passengers for the quick ride across the Messina Strait to the bustling town of Messina.

The first thing you see when leaving the ferry port in Messina!

Around the corner!

We continued our walk to the train station and caught our train after a short wait in the park nearby, watching the fountain water dance. Our stop was Letojanni (pronounced let-o-hanni). A two block walk took us to our Airbnb.

The decorative door to ‘The Artist Bear Apartment’.

Everything is painted with the bright colors and motifs of Sicily, and everything is for sale too!

What isn’t painted is tiled! It took me awhile to find the cutting board!

We cleaned up, stowed our gear and went out to explore town. We found a nearby restaurant and had a late lunch/early dinner.

Sicily is known for seafood! A shrimp and mussels spaghetti!

And really good wine pours!
