We went to see Ragusa Ibla because of Montalbano. A very strange and different visit and town. Very run down with no traffic or people except for tourists. We have travelled a lot but never seen anything like it. It´s not picturesque rather ugly. Walk around it and see the views. Don´t miss the difference between Ragusa and Ragusa Ibla.... More

very picturesque hilltop town. Well worth walking down the little alleyways. Some excellent restaurants to go with the architecture and the views. Beautiful by day and night.

Ragusa, like Noto, was rebuilt following the earthquake of 1693. The hilly location provides many steep lanes leading to unexpected views and structures. The Cathedral is a beautiful structure. The town is very walkable. Good food including an excellent gelato stand.

....if you're listening. Anyway, well worth the visit. Never mind the Montalbano draw, this is a really striking place to visit.

So much to see, the tiny alleys, roads, and old buildings. The clinking of dishes and smell of wonderful food exiting the local's homes as you walk buy. Great place to just walk around. Take a picnic lunch, or shop at one of the many stores and have lunch in the garden.

Following the trail of inspector Montalbano and Kaos the scenes are breathtakingly beautiful. Climb the steps and enjoy the view. The whole centre of Ibla is listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site

Beautiful Baroque town visible from miles around. We reached it by bus from Modica, and then a smaller bus from Ragusa. Much preferred it to Noto.

The Baroque architecture of Ragusa Ibla is a wonder to see. No real need for a guide as wondering the city squares, all the side streets, and climbing the numerous alley/ stairways around town will yield wonderful finds. A nice slow paced place with a lovely garden and views, and pretty squares and shops (including Sicilian wine and produce shops)... More

Great little town in Southeast Sicily. It is a beautiful old town, and a great place to use as a home base to visit other towns.
