This is one of the best places ever to enjoy a great sunset! Definitely one to check out in a great small city that looks so old style.

If you're a Montalbano fan, this is a must-see. The house is there, just as you remember it, along with a nice bar.

The position by the sea is so much better than imagined with the amazing terrace overlooking a small bay. Lots of atmosphere and lovely to hear more about the filming. So glad we stayed here, unforgettable! Great bar opposite!
