Palazzo Il Cavaliere
Ranked #8 of 69 Modica B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2013

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.

Room Tip: Beautiful palazzo; you have to feel the atmosphere

The personal greeting was warm and welcoming. Recommended by Rough Guide and TripAdvisor. Central location and beautifully situated in the centre of Modica, a lovely little town. It had all the romance and atmosphere of a baroque town. The family was very charming and helpful. Not too far from Siracusa and Noto, but a preferable place to stay than either, because of it's intimacy, friendliness and easy access to great restaurants and bars. As vegetarians we were really happily surprised. Price was very reasonable too.

Couldn't recommend it more.

Room Tip: Rooms facing internal courtyard probably best.

We discovered this lovely family run B&B which was a big surprise . Tired After a long day trip coming to this hotel is like coming home . Very welcoming hosts Sarah speaks English which makes it easy to relate . Centrally located has the best eating joints a few metres away . QuAint bars , historical churches , the famous chocolate shops are just round the corner . Coming to Sicily!! One can easily spend 2 days exploring this city and enjoy their stay at Pallazzo de Cavalliere

And indeed thé family are charming, but do not count on modern facilities. The showerhead in my room badly needed to be replaced; the room was very dark and had no eternal window. (Room 2.) The wifi did not work, although there is access to a computer. Afraid I'd not choose this palazzo again.

Welcome to history. Our host family has lived in this building for at least three generations. Great hosts! Great location in lower Modica. I am so glad we stayed in lower instead of upper Modica. We had simply fantastic view from the master suite. See my photo and also the photo of the fresco style ceilings in our room. There are others throughout the building. Great value. Consider yourself lucky if you end up here.

In the hearth of Modica Bassa, this is a wonderful place to stay. The building has got lots of caracter and 'history' and rooms that keep cool even in summer (there is the air con but probably you won't need it).
The owners are lovely and extremely helpful if you need anything from directions, advices on attractions and everything else that regards the area. Free internet in the beautiful lounge area.
The breakfast is huge and yummy, with lots of tipical pastries, fruits and all sorts!... and a stunning view on San Giorgio's cathedral!
Many free parking spaces just outside the hotel.
I definitely recommend it!

A truly gorgeous building in a stunning position in a magical city. Our room with vaulted ceiling was quiet, the air conditioning adequate on a very hot day and night. Across the road from everything, its an easy stroll around the city. breakfast was generous and served in a truly grand dining room. Excellent pastries and salamies, all delivered without fuss. Highly recommend.
