What You Can Expect

'Inspector Montalbano' Filming Locations Tour from Taormina

Explore filming locations on a Sicily tour

Emerge early and depart from your hotel in either Taormina or Messina in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the charming Sicilian town of Ragusa, real-life setting of the fictional Inspector Montalbano town, Vigata. 

Visit the grand Piazza Duomo and Basillica of St George, structures regularly featured in the spy drama, and then continue to significant landmarks like the Palazzo Donnafugata and Circolo di Conversazione, where the popular episodes ‘Gli Arancini di Montalbano’ and ‘The Scent of the Night’ were filmed.

Enjoy some leisurely free time to explore independently and then reconvene with your group for the scenic journey to Punta Secca, a charming seaside town known as 'Marinella' in the show. Stroll the sandy beaches upon which the protagonist likes to recline, and gaze at the grand façade of the Montalbano Commissioner's House. 

Opt to enjoy lunch on the beach at your own expense, or take a revitalizing dip in the Mediterranean Sea before travelling onward to the quaint village of Scicli, famed for its beautiful Baroque monuments. Recognize the town known named 'Montelusa' in the show and visit distinctive landmarks like Scicli Municipal Town Hall, used as the site of the Vigata police station in the show. 

Having explored the area, return to your vehicle for the comfortable journey back to your Messina or Taormina hotel, where the tour concludes.

We really loved this tour. Inspector Montalbano series alerted us to the beauty of Sicily but this covered so much more. Christi the guide has read his reviews and introduced more about the series but his knowledge of Sicily and ability to impart it was excellent


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Interesting tour which covered much more than Montalbano sites. Non-stop narrative from guide was great and a treat at lunch meeting one of cast.

The locations visited were excellent and worthwhile even if you are not an Inspector Montalbano follower. The guide's knowledge of locations and Sicily in general were second to none and he kept to the busy schedule whilst ensuring that there was sufficient time allocated for our own exploring. The towns visited Ragusa Ibla, Punta Secca and Scicli were beautiful and feature Baroque architecture at its best.
