Montalbano places :)

Hi There,

I will be in Stazzo, near Catania for 10 days in middle of july with my better half.

We love the Italian serie "Montalbano" and would like to visit a few places where the series were shot.

Any ideas, places worth visiting ? :)

Thanks !

Excellent, thanks.

I will make notes of those towns, villages and see if we can manage from Stazzo with the rental car :)

Some of the locations are a distance from Stazzo, but Ragusa Ibla is one of the main locations, and it should take about 2 hours to drive.

Enjoy!

Yeah, I did some research and I found the same result. I am interested in those two, and two hours we can sacrifice on Montalbanos altar :)

The Baroque towns are beautiful, delicious cuisine, so not much of a sacrifice!

Do you live in Sicily, if I may ask ? :)

You are so helpful and seem to know every little bit of the island :)
