Our third stop on our trip to south-east Sicily was Modica but only after we had been to Ragusa. If you are around, you must visit Ragusa. Start your trip at Ragusa Alta then walk the road downwards to Ragusa Ibla. This for sure is a very scenic stroll to one of the most beautiful old villages of south-east Sicily. Make sure to spend at least half a day in this lovely village; it is definitely worth it. Spectacular views and a some very nice piazzas and of course not to forget the Duomo San Giorgio.
The Bed & Breakfast has been for ages within the family. The palazzo has a nice and big entrance and has been restored very well. The rooms are nicely furnished and kept in the original style as much as possible. The owners are very proud of their property and they really make their guests feel at ease.
The breakfast is very tasteful with lots of fresh products and some home baked pies. The breakfast room breathes history as you can tell from various pictures of old family members. The view from the breakfast room is really stunning. You see the Duomo San Giorgio in full glory. Apparently San Giorgio has been a real saint since one can find a church or Duomo named after him in a lot of towns in this part of Sicily. So remember going there after breakfast, it is definitely worth the climb.
