Atmospheric, interesting place.
There is a museum and a theatre which still give performances.
There are a lot of puppets representing different characters.

“Interesting but run down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Had a lot of interesting puppets from around the world, but did not make enough of itself. Bored woman at dark desk took the 5 Euros, but most of the AVs did not work and the one that did was a videoed show that lasted an hour and had only two seats in front of it. A pity because the subjects were really interesting and the puppets are marvellous. Needs to try harder.

“Street Vendors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Too many street vendors are allowed to interrupt your meals. They are allowed to walk around most open air restaurants. So annoying when trying to eat!

“Puppi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We went to this puppet museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. The collection covers puppets from all over the world. The traditional Sicilian puppet section is the best.
We were upset that between june and october they do not hold regular puppet shows.
However the Museum staff sent us to
Teatro Argento The Sicilian Puppet Theatre on Pietro novelli street near the Cathedral where we watched the most amazing show by a family of puppeteers whose family have been running the theatre since 1893!! (Tel 091.6113680 to book )
