A hilltop town that’s well worth a visit if you enjoy walking and don’t mind steps. Destroyed in the 1693 earthquake and rebuilt in the Baroque style, there’s lots to see and a good selection of restaurants. A self-guided city walking tour with a handheld audio is available and takes you through the old town. Ragusa Superiore is a very... More

I have been twice to Ragusa Ibla and I must say have found it enchanting both during the day but more so at night. The inner streets are pedestrian areas and all lined up with nice restaurants serving excellent Sicilian food. If you are driving there be careful not to drive through the old part of the city as it... More

Ragusa really surprised me as went to noto prior to here and much preferred Ragusa. It was great as visited out of season so not many tourists which was a massive bonus! Wandered around the many streets and had a drink and bruschetta in the piazza! Well worth the drive out here and way above Syracuse and noto

Beautiful city spread over a ridge. We went there as we love the Montalbano series, but couldn't get a tour a too early in the year. The piazza in front of the cathedral is very pretty. However, almost everything is shut between 2pm and 4pm, and it was rainy and cold on an early March visit

Little, beautiful town, full of charm and typical Sicilian character. Amazing baroque buildings and a lot of fantastic places to eat.

Thus was certainly a tasty & different treat! The moscato gelato was superb, not overpowering but leaving a hint of the sweet wine flavor. Try it when you come. It's truly divine!

Easy to "do" in one day. Lots of palazzi and churches to gape at -- many are decrepit but that is part of this town's charm. Recommend spending two nights to enjoy the local eateries.

Ragusa Ibla is a beautiful baroque city and a world heritage site really worth visiting. There are a number of baroque churches, a pedestrian area for shopping and amazing views of the beautiful surrounding coutryside.

It's a pity that one of the most beautiful baroque area of Sicily is just abandoned to its neglect. Most areas are buried in waste, many private houses are closed and left to decay and some of the attractions are closed to visitors. Furthermore the tourism office is closed on weekends and, despite the opening hours shown on site, probably... More

Ragusa Ibla is a lovely place to visit. We spent several hours just wandering and we're lucky enough to find the cathedral open. Another large baroque church but this is worth seeing inside because of the large glass Coppola letting light stream into the church. We were on public transport and from the bus station in Ragusa we took the... More
