I had great hopes for this attraction, one of the palaces of the fascinating Tomasi di Lampedusa family. There are extraordinary carved wood ceilings to view. Some of the rooms have photos and displays about the family, including the famous author of "The Leopard." I had read that the town was turning the palazzo into a museum and I hope this is not the final result. A young man who works there spoke to me in rapid-fire Italian although I had told him he spoke too fast for me to comprehend. He led me on a personal tour, but I didn't understand much of what he said. What a shame. A brochure in English would have been nice. The stairway to his office (if there's another entrance, I couldn't find it) had the only chair lift I've seen at a public attraction in Sicily to provide access to those with mobility issues. I had to laugh because the presence of the chair lift left no room for a railing to help those who can walk up the stairs.
