Museum of modern art of the 20th century and also 21st century accompanied with some temporal exhibitions (also with amazing exhibition of Sicilian painted wagons). Beautiful villa against ugly factory next to it, amazing!

Not much remains of the baroque character of this palazzo on the edge of Bagheria. Instead, the ample space has been given over to the work of local 20th century artists - especially Renato Guttuso. Since I had never heard of Guttuso before, much less...More

Another regional museum that is filled with surprises, housing the works of Guttuso, his personal collection of art and a few other surprises. The modern and traditional paintings are a varied, but impressive collection. Guttuso's photographs are revealing, and an exhibit dedicated to cart making...More

Fom the Marx Brothers to Federico Fellini . Posters associated with early modern films are featured prominently, with a large selection of movie-posters that range from 1927 through 1984. The exhibit was developed in large part due to the generosity of the Lo Medico brothers,...More

Sight-seeing by bus/train or on escorted day tours (6 Replies)
Hi, I will be based in Palermo for 2 weeks in September and would like to visit the following places/sites: Monreale, Segesta, Cefalu, Selinunte, Siracusa, Bagheria and Valley of the temples. However, because I'm in a wheelchair (I can't walk at all) I don't know whether it'd be easier using public transport or organised day tours. My companion can lift me on/off vehicles and in/out seats if it'll help. Please could someone answer my queries below. I've searched the forum and know we...More

Hi Vagabonda, Thanks so much for your reply - I don't know what I'd do without you! Unfortunately though I still have more questions for you, for which I apologise.

Does the tourist train connect ALL of them? I've read that there's a bus (Autolinee Salemi) from Palermo to Castelvetrano and then to Selinunte - is...More
