I was very curious about Ibla, that is the old Ragusa's town, it's a little bit similar to Matera for example but it's not very organized. Every tourist guide and b and b for example have high prices and not very equal quality services. I suggest to be quiet and ask always for photos when you book a bed and... More

Ragusa Ibla is a small town with a plethora of historical baroque buildings. Every street corner has another church or palazzo. It also has restaurants aplenty, should you be in need of restauration, having walked to many miles up and down steep streets and stairs.Going as we did off season meant some churches were closed. The weather was wonderful for... More

It rains very little in Ragusa... but it all fell while I was there, it seems... Despite the rain I was able to explore the semi deserted town and found it very interesting indeed. There is a bus that goes back and forth through the narrow streets so walking is an option. If you go there in winter, as I... More

You need to be a bit adventurous to get yourself here. We took a train from Taormina but had to hire a driver with a car to get back to Siracusa as the train connections are very primitive. There are however a few drivers who will take you around the area if you don't wish to drive. It cost us... More

Amazing Sicilian city. Ragusa Ibla is a gem clinging to the cliff. Lots of narrow winding streets. Lovely baroque architecture. Amazing how it clings to the cliff.

This is a must for any Montalbano fans out there but for those who are not still an amazing place to visit. The city of Ragusa was literally split in two when Sicily experienced a catastrophic earthquake. Today two new Ragusa 'a exist but Ibla has incredible baroque architecture, beautiful piazzas, windy and charming streets. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, shops... More

One of the Southern Baroque cities, Ragusa Ibla sits high a top a hill looking into a valley gorge. The town seems to dangle over the cliff like a bunch of grapes slipping over the edge of trees fruit bowl. You can also get this sense from Modica and Scili though these two towns seemed less pedestrian friendly. The place... More

Seriously, this entire town is so stinking pretty! Everywhere you look there are beautiful churches, amazing restaurants, and enotecas. The way it is built up on the hill offers a panorama nearly everywhere you look.
