At its narrowest point, it measures 3.1 km (1.9 miles) in breadth, though near the town of Messina the breadth is some 5.1 km (3.2 miles) and maximum depth is 250 m (830 ft).

Great shot
It is always interesting to see so much detail in large pans.

Did you take it from the parking area along the highway? If you had extended the field of view on the left, my parent's house would have been included :)
Drop me a line if you will come back in Sicily again!

Cheers,
Mauro
