We visited the Tempio Votivo di Cristo Re in Messina, whilst on a one day stopover. We were doing a self-guided walking tour armed with a fairly basic tourist map and had climbed up to the memorial via the ‘Vialle Bocetta’. Initially we thought that...More

A lot of history in the building but have to read about it online. They do not provide any English literature.

This is a scenic area. Our taxi driver told to view the area surrounding the church, I cannot say what it was like inside. It is worth a visit.

This review is NOT about the church, but about the marvelous promenade across the street from the church. From this pretty promenade, we enjoyed a wonderful panoramic view of the sea, the Italian mainland (the “toe” of the “boot”), and the hook shaped peninsula that...More
