Strait of Messina

The Strait of Messina is the narrow section of water between the eastern tip of Sicily and the southern tip of Italy. A natural whirlpool forms there (see Charybdis).

A ferry connects Messina (Sicily) with the mainland at Villa San Giovanni[?] in Calabria. There is also a hydrofoil service from Messina to Reggio di Calabria[?].
