An interesting hotch-potch of a town

I admit to some bias as my daughter lives on the outskirts, but there is much to see and do in Ragusa. It is mostly on the top of a steep hill with a gem of a town centre, mainly... read more

I admit to some bias as my daughter lives on the outskirts, but there is much to see and do in Ragusa. It is mostly on the top of a steep hill with a gem of a town centre, mainly rebuilt after a disastrous earthquake in (I think) the 16th Century. This is the part where Inspector Montalbano is filmed.... More

We visited Ibla while staying in the newer Ragusa Superiore in January. The setting of Ibla is really nice, very good if you like hilltop towns/photography. There are several nice squares with some good cafes/restaurants, and Baroque churches/ other buildings to visit. Can be seen in one full day

Thanks to some stubborn Nobles, who rebuilt this town after an earthquake in 1693, you can now wonder around it's streets with many Baroque buildings. Everything is very quiet and there are some decent cafe's and restaurants

As part of our wanderings we stumbled across a wedding taking place and it was a pleasure to see the bride and her father arriving at the church. Ragusa Ibla is interesting with some wonderful buildings and shops and is certianly worth taking time to explore.

We spent a day walking around in the old alleys of this charming town. The old buildings and the lovely view is well worth seeing. It was a lot less touristy than we expected.

We have travelled here a few times now and always enjoy our stay. We stayed at San Giorgio Hotel this time and will surely return. Staff were very helpful and also managed to book restaurants like La bettola and Quattro Gatti which are difficult to book sometimes. This time we stayed for NYE and even though the town was bare...

This is a good place to just walk and see the old town's buildings including the Duomo which is the church of St. Georgio. Many visitors especially come here because it is used for filming in the Inspector Montelbano TV series.

This UNESCO world heritage site is one of the most unique experiences you can have in Sicily. After a massive earthquake in 1693 the majority of the town started new in Ragusa Superiore. The Nobels stayed behind and rebuilt this Sicillian Baroque layer cake. Ragusa Ibla drips with pastel colored charm and romance at every turn. Although there are a... More
