Milazzo, a strip of land that reaches out to the Aeolian Islands, is part of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The peninsula is located between two gulfs, Milazzo in the eastern part, Patti in the western one. From the Baia del Tono, where the most beautiful part of the long beach is located, the rocky part of the promontory begins, culminating in the wonderful Baia di Sant’Antonio.
The oldest evidence dates back to the Bronze and Iron Age. The city is famous for the naval battle between the Roman and Carthaginian fleets during the first Punic war. The castle testifies 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, decisive for the birth of the Kingdom of Italy.
