Then we begin the walking tour of the “Castello”, built by the Arabs on the site of the greek acropolis and enlarged several times during the French and the Spanish period. Then we take the “Lungomare Garibaldi” along the seafront and cross the  district of “Vaccarella”, we stop here to enjoy the openair fish market and then we follow the panoramic road which runs along the eastern side of the Milazzo promontory to the end.
