The excellence of the Strait in the showcase: the second Tourism Meeting presented in synergy from Reggio Calabria and Messina


By John

The Strait of Myth between Scylla and Charybdis, on the route of Ulysses. The two metropolitan cities of Messina and Reggio Calabria, with their respective capital municipalities, implement it. The metropolitan councilor Giuseppe Ranuccio and the municipal councilor of Reggio Calabria, Giovanni Latella, in delegation to Palazzo Zanca, welcomed by the mayor of Messina, Federico Basile.

For the first time, formally, the Strait Area will begin to talk about tourism in a united way. The occasion is the second edition of the Tourism Meeting 2024 (Meet), promoted by the Municipality and Metropolitan City of Messina, the Municipality and Metropolitan City of Reggio Calabria, and the Strait Port Authority.

From 23 to 29 June, 19 Italian, European and international tourist buyers, many of whom are arriving thanks to the new air connections of Ryanair, partner of the initiative, will be divided between Reggio Calabria and Messina to evaluate and plan, through site visits, workshops and b2b, possible packages for the two metropolitan areas of the Strait.

A specific memorandum of understanding will implement joint tourism promotion initiatives for the Strait area which will be identified for the occasion: The Strait of Myth between Scylla and Charybdis. Ideally we will follow the ‘Route of Ulysses’, from the perspective of the ‘terraces on the Strait’, in this case the ‘Umbertine’ fortifications.
