Montalbano TV locations tour
Although Andrea Camilleri's novels are set in the fictional town of Vigata that resembles Porto Empedocle (From Montelusa to Vigata tour), the Tv films are set in the area of Ragusa.
This tour will take you to the major real life locations used for the Montalbano TV series and will give you the opportunity to enjoy the unique scenery of this part of Sicily
We make our way into Vigata in the province of Montelusa and stop in front of the police station (Scicli). Few steps away is the Questura or Commissioner's office of Montelusa. Then, we drive to Ragusa Ibla to see the Church of Vigata (Cathedral of San Giorgio) and other locations featured in "The shape of the water", "The voice of the violin" "The snack thief". Stop for lunch at "Trattoria San Calogero", the reastaurant that Montalbano goes to.
In the afternoon, we continue to Punta Secca to see the exterior of Montalbano's house and Donnalucata (Marinella) where you can imagine him swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. Finally, we go to the Castello di Donnafugata (House of mafia boss Balduccio Sinagra) and the Pasture at "Pisciotto", the site of an abandoned factory that features in a couple of movies
