If you’re a fan of the film then it’s definitely worth a trip down to Palazzo Adriano. It’s nearly two hours from Palermo but the drive is scenic and once you get out of the car in the square and find the fountain that features in the film you’ll be pleased to have got there. There’s a small office in the town hall where you might be able to pick up a town guide with a trail of film locations, but we found it a bit difficult to follow. However, the tiny museum is very quaint, with lots of photographs, some of the old cinema seats and Alfredo’s bicycle. There’s not a lot to see, but if you want a nostalgia kick then be sure to go there. You might even shed a tear when the soundtrack and theme tune is played in the background. It might be best to book in advance – our host in Palermo arranged the visit for us by telephone as we couldn’t see any way of booking on-line. We did this in a day from Palermo, and combined Palazzo Adriano with the town of Corleone where there is an excellent anti-Mafia centre with guided tours, so this can be a very fruitful outing.

I saw the movie a few years ago and became a fan immediately. So i was really happy when i found out they filmed Cinema Paradiso in the small town of Palazzo Adriano. We went to the touristic info on the square and met with a nice lady. Although she didn't know any English you felt they were really proud of there museum and town. We even met the mayor, who welcomed us in his town. She brought us then to the museum. It's not a big museum but nice. A lot of pictures from behind the scenes and some props from the movie made it a fun visit. They also give you a map to do a walk around the filming locations which is also interesting. It's a great little town and I hope to return there one day!

I'm a fan of the movie and always wanted to come to Palazzo Adriano if some day i could went to Italy. Well, at last it happened this past august and went to Sicily and as soon i left the plane and got my rental car i went straight to Palazzo Adriano. My GPS sent me trough the country side and saw beautiful landscapes along the route. Being also a "The Godfather" fan it was really cool to went through the town of Corleone! At last I arrived to Palazzo Adriano and it is a very quiet and peaceful town. People are very kind and lead me to the tourism office. Once in there i sign the log and went to the museum with a very kind lady whom explained every detail of the items at the museum and lead me to various sites within the town were the film was made. If you're a fan of the movie and sometime go to Sicily you must come here.

My favorite movie of all time. Being in Palazzo Adriano was one of my goals while visiting Sicily. The square, the church, the fountain all brought it back. The tourist office has a visitor log and once signed a very lovely woman took us into the small museum. She was one of the original villagers in the film and to this day she continues to be thrilled to talk about it. There’s many photos and the original bicycle and other props from the movie. Of course the soundtrack was playing and that made you feel you were really there. Then we were shown Alfredo’s house up the block. For a fan of the film, it’s a must visit.
