Holidays in Ragusa

Travel Information

Language: Italian

Currency: Euros

Local time: GMT/BST+1


Ragusa is a town high in the Monti Iblei mountain range, making a stunning setting for your next holiday. The town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its Baroque architecture. The town has a fascinating history as much of it had to be rebuilt after an earthquake in the 15th century. When Ragusa was rebuilt, some local aristocrats chose to build a palace district on the site of the old town. Modern Ragusa is split into two distinct districts; the old town which is now known as Ragusa Ibla, and the more modern Ragusa Superiore.

In Ragusa Superiore, you’ll find the town’s archaeological museum where you can discover artefacts dating as far back as the Bronze Age, as well as the beautiful Baroque cathedral. Ragusa Superiore has a charming selection of shops and boutiques, perfect for a spot of retail therapy on your Sicilian holiday. Ragusa Ibla also has its own Baroque Cathedral, the 18th century Duomo di San Giorgio. This cathedral is located in the centre of the old town and features a collection of ancient artwork and statues. The town’s park, Giardino Ibleo, stands at the edge of Ragusa Ibla and overlooks the Sicilian countryside with breath-taking views. A mild Mediterranean climate and a lively atmosphere make Ragusa a popular tourist destination year-round for any tourist, from couples to families.

Top Ragusa resorts

Modica

Modica is another UNESCO-listed Baroque town in south-east Sicily but is also famous around the world for its Aztec-inspired Modican chocolate. The town is just a few miles from Ragusa, high in the Monti Iblei. Public transport runs from Ragusa to Modica throughout the day, a 20-minute journey that only costs around €2.50. Modica has two beautiful Baroque cathedrals of its own, and these are the most popular tourist sights. The Duomo di San Pietro and the Duomo di San Giorgio which is considered to be one of the seven wonders of the Baroque. Smaller churches are found throughout the town, but the Chiesa Rupestre di San Nicoló is particularly worth a visit for its unique location in a cave, decorated with Byzantine wall paintings. There are many chocolate shops around the town, but Antica Dolceria Bonajuto is the town’s oldest and most famous chocolatier. The family-run business even offers tours of the factory in addition to selling delicious gourmet Cioccolata di Modica.

Scicli

Scicli is slightly more off the beaten track than other Sicilian Baroque towns, so it’s less crowded in the holiday season. Don’t be fooled, however, as it still has some of the best sights in the Baroque world. Tourists developments are beginning to pop up around the area, so visit soon if you’re looking to enjoy a taste of Sicilian authenticity. The original settlement dates back to 300

The original settlement dates back to 300 BC but was rebuilt in the Baroque style after the 1693 earthquake, earning its UNESCO-listed status. There are plenty of historic sights to see around the town, but the most interesting are the cave museums, actually used as homes until the mid-20th century! Some of the best Baroque architecture can be seen in the Piazza Italia, a town square lined with elegant palaces and villas. Further away you’ll find the stunning Palazzo Beneventano, a Baroque masterpiece.

Noto

Further towards the east coast is the town of Noto, the capital of Sicilian Baroque architecture. It was in this little town that the Sicilian Baroque style first developed at the turn of the 17th century. The best way to experience Noto is to simply wander through the narrow streets, as every building in its historic centre is a masterpiece in itself.

Its winding alleys and side-streets contain many hidden cafés and restaurants that would be easy to miss otherwise. The grand 18th century Duomo and the Palazzo Ducezio are the town’s most impressive sites, located just next to each other. Inside the Palazzo Ducezio, the Hall of Mirrors costs just €1 to see and has some magnificent fresco paintings from the 19th century. While you’re in the town, make sure you visit the ruins of Noto Antica, the remnants of pre-1693 Noto.

Relax on the beaches of Marina di Ragusa

Marina di Ragusa is a small village on the southern coast of Sicily, just south of the town of Ragusa. The marina is popular with younger generations for its vibrant nightlife, but the beaches are the main appeal here. With over two kilometres of golden sands stretching across the coastline and highs of 33oC in the summer, Marina di Ragusa makes the perfect place to relax and catch the Sicilian sunshine. Many of the beaches have sun loungers and parasols to hire and are lined with bars and cafés serving light refreshments throughout the day for when you want a break from the heat. Lifeguards are posted along the shore, making Marina di Ragusa a popular destination for families.

Food and drink in Ragusa

Sicilian dishes feature heavy Arab, French, Greek and Italian influences throughout, making for a unique dining experience.
