South-East Sicily

Explore

#NOTO - Enter Corso Vittorio Emanuele, enjoying a pistachio ice cream and discovering the history of the great palaces and churches with peach-colored walls and set off to discover a small town that "hides" one of the most beautiful historic centres in all of Sicily.

 

#RAGUSA - In Ragusa, a staircase connects the two souls of the city: Ragusa Superiore and Ragusa Ibla. Walking these steps is like entering a history book, peering into the past among old houses and sumptuous buildings.

 

#MODICA - It is known for its chocolate and for its "hundred churches". It divides into Modica Alta and Modica Bassa and the buildings are in gray rock perched on a hill. Its UNESCO World Heritage treasures are scattered around different areas, but what will most likely take your breath away will be the unique panoramic views of this area, both day and night.

 

#SCICLI - A town set between the three stone valleys, also known as quarries, with ancient churches, eighteenth-century noble palaces and arid countryside marked by dry stone walls and carob trees.

 

#SIRACUSA - From the millenary old town of Ortigia to the Maddalena peninsula and the secret beaches of Plemmirio, a holiday between myth, history and nature.

#THE SEA - Along the 150 kilometers of coastline, you will find fine sand, wild rocks, deserted and hidden coves. But also beaches with five-star Beach Clubs.

 

#ISPICA CAVES - Those who love trekking cannot fail to dedicate at least one day to visit the Ispica quarries, one of the most evocative and unspoiled places of the Iblei. It is a river valley that crosses the Hyblaean plateau for about 14 km, between Modica and Ispica, and which houses prehistoric necropolises, Christian catacombs, natural caves.

 

#MARZAMEMI AND PORTOPALO DI CAPO PASSERO - If you like small fishing villages, Marzamemi is the ideal choice. Set of different films and locations of a beautiful beach in the Spinazza area, this ancient seaside village is the most photographed for the beautiful square, full of restaurants and surrounded by a thousand shades of blue: from the sky to the sea, to the windows and chairs of the premises.

 

#VENDICARI NATURE RESERVE - A protected wildlife oasis whose lagoons and ponds are the stop for migratory birds and an intact landscape with sudden glimpses of the blue sea and the ancient Tonnara, whose remains seem to recall classical temples.

 

#FLOWER FESTIVAL - The Infiorata is a tradition revived annually on the third Sunday of May. A festival event that sees flower artists use flowers and flower petals to set up decorations and colored and fragrant carpets in the center of the city. Over the years - the first edition is in 1980 - the Infiorata has become one of the most significant and famous festivals in all of Sicily, set in the beautiful Baroque city of Noto.
