    You need to book a tour, and try to do it the day before, because this is a very popular place to visit. There are visits in Italian and English, and they are held by former factory workers, very passionate about their jobs/lives. The factory has been renovated for the purpose of the visits, and contains very nice exhibits. A must!!!

    A fantastic little museum that a friend had recommended. We took our four children, aged between four and eleven and all of them absolutely loved it, as we both did. You have to book your guided tour, which is so informative and interesting. We also had time to take lots of amazing photos. Hard to choose our favourite, but the upside down living room was great fun!

    When poor Sicilians couldn't afford doctors their only resort was their faith and a pilgrimage up Mount Pellegrino to Saint Rosalia's sanctuary. The views driving up are spectacular for tourists but that's not what people on their knees going the pilgrim's way saw or why they went. The grotto of baby's bibs and motor bike helmets bespeak sadder, more basic concerns that people still do not rely solely on modern medicine to solve. St Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo, died aged only 35 in 1566, her short life controversial because women were not supposed to live as hermits in caves. Look up to where the limestone cave claws its way and see the eccentric plumbing that channels drips away from pilgrims' and visitors' heads.

    We spent a morning in this park at the top of the hill in Liperi. It is a collection of historic sites that includes a great museum, the castle, the Cattedrale di San Bartolomeo and the Acropoli. It is well marked and has good descriptive signage.

    Well if you are in the area I do advise to have a wonder around this garden. It has a particular atmosphere, and you can imagine the artist living there on his own with his sculpted heads...it is the combination of the place and the story behind it that makes it interesting. Particularly if nobody else is there and it is quiet...

    The monastery is very well worth visiting. The English tour is really great. Our guide did a great job explaiing the history and architecture of the monastery.

    We were not really sure what to expect and it turned out to be a fantastic experience seeing toys from our grandparents childhood as well as our own. (We are both 30 years old). The owner of the museum was very informative and enthusiastic which added to the experience, definitely worth a visit.

    Found this lovely little gem after having coffee in the square at Nicolosi. We were greet by a very friendly man, who said he could give us a tour. We weren’t sure what to expect and with British trepidation off we went. The whole experience was very informative with models, pictures, short film clips and a chance to ask questions as we went along. We were there for just over an 1hr, the time flew by. It’s free but you can make a donation which we were happy to do. We were charged €9 each yesterday for a guide on Mount Etna, and it was nowhere near as good or informative as the Museum. Give it a go, it’s well worth an hour out of your day. Also has a lovely courtyard where you can eat and get a drink.

    A really important Sicilian museum for all interested in history / archaeololgy to visit. The small museum building within a small fort is well stocked with interesting artifacts relevant to the first Greek colony of Sicily. The archaeological remains contained in the vast outdoor park are extensive. They are however widespread and need to be 'hunted' for. Full explantions in English are limited on the outdoor excavations. When we were the first time the grass was starting to be cut. On a subsequent visit to the exterior larger areas of grass had been cut and archaeologists were active in one of the main dig areas.

    I'm not sure how a museum can be so unassuming from the outside yet is a real gem inside. There is only a small name on the buzzer to enter but what lies inside is wall to wall ceramic tiles and also displays of vintage pieces and furniture. Entrance fee included a personal guided tour in english or italian. A wonderful experience.

    My group had the rare privilege of meeting the boat captain that found the bronze of the Dancing Satyr. The museum does a wonderful job of placing the bronze in the context of the era and the lighting highlights the beauty of the sculpture.

    One of the best archeological museums I have visited. Information was provided to put the historical items in perspective. The interior of the palazzo/museum if wonderful. Nice coffee bar. Not much to look at on the outside but don't be fooled by that. Venture in and retreat in time.

    The mill is in a lovely setting. We were greeted by Enza and able to have un caffè before starting the tour. Fascinating to see a working mill and get a glimpse into the mill's historical past. Followed the visit with a walk to the nearby grottos. Very enjoyable.

    The building does not allow people wearing shorts! The building also serves as a court building. The museum resides inside the court building. Do not wear shorts!
