The city is divided into the lower and upper sections. The lower is the original site and it is wonderful. You can catch amazingly beautiful views from many of its sites. There is a garden at the edge of it where we encountered blooming trees and flowers and where the loudest sounds came from the birds singing. Caution, there are... More

Enjoyed walking around the old village on a hill below the big newer city. Lovely views. Nice gardens and impressive Baroque Duomo. Enter from left side up a lot of steps

Coming from the upper town of Ragusa, by chance we stopped near the terrace where the fifteenth-century church of Santa Maria della Scala is located. A mighty view lies beyond and nothing quite prepares you for the first glimpse of Ragusa Ibla (exactly as you see it in “Inspector Montalbano”). There are plenty of handsome old towns in Sicily, but... More

Loved the picturesque setting and history at every turn. We loved wandering around to see the small shops and restaurants that lined the streets. Plenty of gelato shops...

The old town of Ragusa Ibla is extremely picturesque and the churches are gems of architecture. Restaurants provide local cuisine from Michelin two stars down to fast food snack bars. All delicious. Be prepared to walk up steps - the town is built on a hill.

If you want a taste of an Italian hill-town, you could do no better than to go to Ibla. There are steep narrow streets with the houses crammed onto the hillside and the Piazza in front of the Duomo is a lovely place to sit and watch the locals. However, driving on the narrow and twisty roads is not for... More

The town is compact and easily walkable with stunning Baroque architecture, great views, and a fascinating history. Lots of good places to eat.

OK, so everyone will tell you that you must go to Ragusa. But remember, they are talking about Ragusa Ibla, not the newer town of Ragusa, and driving, parking and getting around in Ragusa Ibla in tourist season is HORRIBLE. So, here's the secret. First, go earlier in the year. We were there in mid April. Few tourists. Perfect weather.... More

This baroque city is a supreme architectural place; the uphill stairs and narrow roads give this place its definition. The Duomo is a unique jewel to the place. There are plenty of restaurants, cafeterias and souvenir shops. the fresh orange juice is a delicacy.
