While Ragusa Ibla is an excellent place to visit, please do it by walking. The mini train is a rip-off: It goes very fast, the comments are only in Italian and hardly audible, the wagons are covered and, thus, you can't see anything of the house fronts when passing through the narrow streets.

This is a picture perfect little place. We took the little train ride round which was well worth the 5€ ticket price. The bar on the right hand side of the square very near the cathedral steps was a very good find. Not expensive, very friendly service and a lovely location to enjoy a coffee, glass of wine or local... More

If you are able do the steps, it is most rewarding to walk from Ragusa Superiore to Ibla and back. There are several restaurants in Ibla it is a lovely place to spend time.

We took a day trip with guide out of Taormina to visit Ragusa Ibla and Modica. It was the highlight of our 9 days in Sicily. While everyone is drawn to antiquity visiting the Greek and Roman era ruins in Sicily, most miss these hillside towns with built into the Sicilian hills. The aristocratic villas in Ragusa have been preserved... More

The walk down the steps from Ragusa ('new' town) is a bit of a trek, but worth it for the sights and views on the way down. Ragusa Ibla itself is charming, and the ice cream shop near the Duomo is also well worth a visit. The green park at the foot of Ragusa Ibla is well shaded and includes... More

Ragusa Ibla is beautiful and historic as many reviews have said, but if you want to take a break from all those churches then book a tour with 'Unlocking Doors' a small company who will take you on an approx one hour guided walk into private places in Ragusa Ibla. Quite by chance we found their office next to the... More

We stayed in ragusa superiore and were very disappointed, until we walked down 300 stairs to Ragusa ibla. A beautiful baroque town that is really worth visiting

My travel plans were disrupted along with my quadriceps tendon by a fall at Rome airport so I had to reduce my travel ambitions. I still managed to hobble effectively around Ragusa and take the bus to Ibla. Both were great. Apart from braving steps and inclides in Ibla I took the bus to Punta Seccas to check out sites... More

buildings are outstanding, many of wich are abandoned and give a negative connotetion to the entire site. Touristing info are only available when you do not need them. They were closed becuase of the patron day celebration, they are also close on week ends
