While there is no outside terrace, our great value-for-money price will allow you to spend time at any of Modica's pavement cafes and indulge in as much gelati and and aperativi as you like. Nearby you have supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and lots of historic sites to see. Modica is famous for its chocolate, with many chances to try local products. In 2003 UNESCO added the city of Modica and the surrounding area to the World Heritage List for its baroque buildings and architectural design unique to this part of Sicily. If you do not wish to drive there is plenty to see in Modica and its environs, using public transport. Beaches are 25 minutes away. If you have a car, Modica is within easy driving distance of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto, three other noted Baroque towns, as well as beaches at Marina di Modica, Donnalucata, Pozzallo and Sampieri. Many of these places have been used in the filming of the Montalbano TV series. Longer day trips can be made to the Greek ruins of Agrigento, the Roman mosaics at Piazza Armerina, and Caltagirone, famous for its painted ceramics. More
