Leave your Taormina or Messina province hotel in the early morning, and relax on your coach ride south to the authentic Sicilian town of Ragusa, the first stop on your Inspector Montalbano tour.

Here you?ll visit Piazza Duomo, home to the Basilica of St George, a site that represents the main square of the show?s fictional town of Vigata.

Just remember to bring your bathing suit!

Continue onward to the small village of Scicli and enjoy a short walk through its lovely Baroque historical center, named ?Montelusa? in the show. Visit Scicli Municipal Town Hall in Palazzo Municipio, and hear how the building was the set location for the Police Commissioner?s office and the Vigata police station. Here you can purchase a ticket to the mayor\'s real-life office (Stanza del Sindaco), used in the series as Montalbano?s office.

At the end of the day, relax on the drive back to your Taormina or Messina province hotel.
