Amazing place, but is not actually fitted for elderly people - the best view is from high stairs that is quite a big challenge to climb

A baroque town on a hill, with winding cobblestone "streets", ever narrower alleys, balconies with flowers, great views, beautiful surroundings, friendly people, and a small downtown with several good restaurants.

This city (also set of the famous Commissario Montalbano), is a gem to visit. All in white stones goes up, where you have the chance to see a great view at the top. Really worth visit and have a walk around.

A lot of stairs, a spirit of an ancient city. It is a must if you go to Ragusa! At the end of this part of the city there is a very nice garden (park) that is worth visiting,

Small cute town with a lot of history. Stores close down around lunch time for a few hours. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Lots of great dining options to sit outside and people watch. My family and I stayed in town here in Ragusa Ibla at a small bed and breakfast and thankfully had family from Ragusa to help show us... More

We went to see Ragusa Ibla because of Montalbano. A very strange and different visit and town. Very run down with no traffic or people except for tourists. We have travelled a lot but never seen anything like it. It´s not picturesque rather ugly. Walk around it and see the views. Don´t miss the difference between Ragusa and Ragusa Ibla.... More

very picturesque hilltop town. Well worth walking down the little alleyways. Some excellent restaurants to go with the architecture and the views. Beautiful by day and night.

Ragusa, like Noto, was rebuilt following the earthquake of 1693. The hilly location provides many steep lanes leading to unexpected views and structures. The Cathedral is a beautiful structure. The town is very walkable. Good food including an excellent gelato stand.

....if you're listening. Anyway, well worth the visit. Never mind the Montalbano draw, this is a really striking place to visit.
