We came on the train from Modica and it is a fantastic journey as the train chugs its way upward sometimes inside the hill sometimes not up to Ragusa Superior. We then walked down to the steps [Via Scala] down to Ragusa Ibla. Quick visit to the church at the bottom of the steps which is up some steps and... More

A bit like Ireland only a old Catherdal at every corner. stay away from the 'pub' too costly which is a pity. But the city is classic.

I have often seen TV programmes which have featured shots of hilltop continental towns. I was blown away by the real thing. The whole town from the views one got from down by the river of the houses seemingly perched on the hillside to the splendid views that rewarded our climb to the Piazza Dottor Solarino. The town really deserves... More

Quaint town with many cafes for lunch and coffee breaks. We walked the main street in Ragusa and then walked down the stairs to Ragusa Ibla and it is a steep but beautiful walk down and many places for photo opportunites, coffee breaks or a granite...frozen ice drink which is quite refreshing on the hot days. A quick drive over... More

This was part of a long planned trip with our friends David and Kate Hastings to tour south of Italy and Sicily embracing Italy’s years of history and culture along with the current. To do this we asked Planetrail to plan our whole trip which started with a flight to Rome where we stayed for three nights at the Hotel... More

There are a lot of steps in Ragusa Ibla but well worth the effort. If Baroque architecture is your thing you will be spoilt for choice though some of the churches could do with some tlc. A wander round with a town map is probably the best thing to do whilst having the odd coffee from time to time. The... More

The old town of Ragusa was completely rebuilt after the earthquake of 1695 and now represents a great opportunity to see a town built in the Baroque style of the time. Once you find the old town( not that easy-make sure you park as close as possible or you may end up with averylong steep walk) the sights. Are. All... More

Modica has a charm and ease and start your day there - two hours is sufficient- then drive half an hour to Ragusa Ibla 'Old Town' for lunch in Ristorante Rusicana and a relaxing afternoon in the main corso ( 'street') where gelati cafes abound. If you are a fan of the TV series 'Montalbano' then drive down to Punto... More

Went to Ragusa Ibla looking forward to seeing all the churches and palazzos and the cathedral. After driving around a fair bit to find a parking space,. we finally found one right at the bottom and had to walk up steep hills, lots of steps to get to the first church. I am not a fan of the catholic church's... More
