The exterior served as the early police station for Montalbano and quite why they chose to move this to Ragusa when they still film in Scicli for the Commissioner's office only the producers could say. It is an impressive town hall and the Mayor's office which you can visit is a wonderful place, you get a short accompanied tour and... More

This is actually the Scicli Town Mayor's office and we had to wait to visit it as it was being used for a wedding ceremony when we first arrived so lots of very happy people around and we had to carefully avoid appearing in lots of the photographs being taken! Yes it's an imposing office with various items and insignia... More

Had to go and see the mayors office, which doubles as the office for Montalbano's boss. Very good guide and lots of photos. The street outside is the exterior shot for the police station.

Familiar from the Montalbano programmes, this fine, lavishly decorated room opens on to a balcony with a view over the UNESCO World Heritage Via Mormino Penna.

As a fan of Commissario Montalbano, I enjoyed seeing the room where his chief held court, with its beautiful period furniture and view over the piazza .

We visited Scicli on a day trip from Modica. It's a beautiful town which deserves many more visitors. We've never watched a full episode of either the original Montalbano series, or the Young Montalbano. However - because we were in town, we visited this place, which in real life is the mayor's office. We had a 15 minute tour with... More

The mayors office here is home to the Questura that Montalbano frequently visits, usually parking his car just outside and running up the stone steps. We wandered past in the evening and noticed it was open (still at 7.30pm) so went inside. A really friendly young lady showed us the room, explained what scenes were shot here, the history of...

Mayor's room in the town hall ... used in the TV series Commissario Montalbano. Much smaller than it looks on TV!

Here you can visit the room that in the fiction is the of office of Commissario Montalbano, that' it. In reality it's the office of the Mayor of the Town The room is exactly the same of the fiction, it's nice, but not amazing. I guess that if it wasn't Montalbano's room, nobody will go there to visit it. In... More
