I loved all the old churches and old buildings. The people were all very friendly and helpful. Food was great and very reasonably priced.

Old city with spectular views. Small streets with loads of character Beautiful u were fall I love with the place. Can be very hilly so you need to be aware of that. Public transport was a bit of a hassle until you get your bearings

Ragusa Ibla is on the UN World Hertiage List - for a good reason! Significant amounts of international funds have been used for restoration (and hopefully not too much have been diverted..) Walk the narrow streets. Stop to look at the architectural details. Do a bit of shopping - and eat happily (See review of MAD Restaurant). You can do... More

The old town is traffic free and the atmospheric medieval streets are fun to explore with lovely old buildings and friendly people. It is relatively un commercialised which adds to the sense of discovery and the place comes to life in the evening when everyone comes onto the streets to meet and talk and take their evening stroll. Magical!

Fabulous traffic-free walks through this old town. Historic buildings of subtle beauty and the gardens are worth visiting for some shaded relaxation. Folk music al fresco in the main piazza is a special treat and there's even a little train ride through the streets for children. Delightful.

Best "City" we've visited on our 9-Day vacation (although we were in noto, siracusa, modica, enna) Beautiful atmosphere in the evening- when the Piazza gets busy. For Dinner go to the trattoria "la bettola"- wonderful cute tiny Place to eat traditional Food! Reservate!

The view of Ibla from Santa Maria Delle Scale is magical. Walk down the 250 steps into the beautiful baroque city

Beautiful city but the steps are a bit of a killer, well worth a visit for a morning or late afternoon.
