My wife and I arrived in Modica by taxi on a rainy night in late September from the ferry terminal at Pozzallo. We clambered up the street to the Hotel Relais Modica. The flight of stairs to the Relais was a charming introduction to Sicily. My wife and I were instantly entranced. We were met by Lorenzo who made us feel so welcome.The room was spacious and the next morning the view from the balcony overlooking Modica toward the Cathedral San Giorgio was fabulous. My wife and I even climbed the 250 stairs from Corso Umberto to San Giorgio!
We met Antonio, the owner, at breakfast, who gave us any information we sought. My wife was so impressed that she left remarks of gratitude in the guestbook in Vietnamese, her native language. We stayed at Relais Modica ten days later to find that our last night on Sicily was every bit as appealing as our first night. Antonio and Lorenzo, piacere, you are the best!
