On the trail of Commissario Montalbano: Literary tour covering the places described in Camilleri's novels

New 2016
Vigata and Montelusa are places that are imaginary and real at the same time: Porto Empedocle is Vigata with its streets, abandoned factories, Pasture, lighthouse,flat rock, Salita Granet, Marinella beach, "Commissariato" in Lincoln Street, Monte Crasto, Restaurant San Calogero and Trattoria da Enzo and Girgenti is Montelusa with the Commissioner's Office and Rabato district. We'll follow in the steps of Salvo Montalbano and the other members of Vigata's small police force. Mimì Augello, Montalbano's second-in-charge, Fazio, Gallo, Galluzzo and the incredibly stupid yet likeable Catarella, who mans the station's phones.The tour starts from the place the customer wish. We drive directly to the city centre of Montelusa (Agrigento): here we find the Commissioner's office (Questura) and Piazza San Francesco, the place where the very idea of Vigata came to Camilleri's mind. We walk along Via Atenea to the Santo Spirito Library where Montalbano finds the book that helps him understand the mystery of the Terracotta Dog. Transfer to Villaseta (The Snack Thief ) and continue to Vigata, passing by the Pasture. Stop at the Tower of Charles V (described in Camilleri's first book) and at the pier to admire the sight of Vigata from the sea. Later, we walk in Vigata city centre to Salita Granet and Caffè Vigata with references to variousworks of Andrea Camilleri that are set there (The shape of water, The scent of the night, The terracotta dog, The excursion to Tindari, The voice of the violin).
