Typically no. three of the Ragusa/Noto/Scicli gems; but for many, understandably, rated the best. A lovely crusty mid size town in southern Sicily equal to the other Val di Noto cities. Very well known to us Montalbano fans, and now being discovered by a larger audience. Much architectural to love in wandering the center and surrounding streets & alleys. Thankfully... More

What a nice surprise! Scicli totally surpassed our expectations. When we stopped over in a town that was not even mentioned in our Italy Lonely Planet we thought we would be done in one hour or so...little we knew we would have wanted to spend a week in there! Lots of churches, friendly locals (yes, there are friendly locals in... More

Scicli is not always on the beaten track of the more flamboyant Ragusa Ibli and Modica, Noto route - however it is SO worth the extra few miles to include it in your tour of the south. There are a number of locations here which have been used in the TV detective Montelbano series which you can access - (including... More

We enjoy the smaller towns and communities which provide a personal experience with those we connect. These cities recognize tourists but have less in the way of pandering to them such as the larger cities have done. We would be curious to see what the on season looks like for tourist traffic and reaching out for amenities usual to tourist... More

Very amazing place and area. Make sure you plan your visit during the sunset so you can walk up to the church up and enjoy the stunning view of the sunset and the city lights. All restaurants there are unique and nice

We didn't find ScIcli in the tour books, but it is near Ragusa and on a tip, we decided to give it a try. Good idea. It is very, but less touristy than Ragusa or Modica. Narrow streets, great views and homes clinging to the hilltop. Nice walking town and not bad to do by car.

We made a brief visit to Scicli at the end of a day but were pleased not to have missed it. We enjoyed a walk up the hill to the old castle and the beautiful views as the sunset. The centre was a little more bustling and busy than some of the smaller hill towns.

Off the normal track of the other more well known Baroque towns of Ortigia, Noto, Modica and Ragusa. Quieter and smaller and probably my favourite.

This is a very quaint town and easy to drive in--compared to larger cities like Catania or Siracusa. Nice place for a one-night stop while touring Sicily.
