After breakfast we will discover Ragusa. Essentially Baroque, the Ragusa you will see today dates almost entirely from 1693, because it was razed to the ground by a terrible earthquake that hit most of the eastern side of Sicily. The wealthier, more aristocratic citizens built a new town in a different site, now Ragusa "Superiore", while the other half of the population decided to rebuild on the original site, on a ridge at the bottom of a gorge, now Ragusa Ibla, that really draws visitors: the sight of the jumble of houses, churches and civic palazzi piled on top of each other, clinging to the walls of the gorge, is really quite breathtaking. The town is part of the Val di Noto UNESCO Heritage site and 18 of its buildings are protected by UNESCO patronage: the Basilica di San Giorgio that lies at the top of some 200 steps and has an impressive neoclassical dome that was added in 1820; "Giardino lbleo". The Hyblean Gardens offer some fantastic views of the town; the Chiesa di Maria delle Scale (St. Mary of the Stairs) lies between Ragusa Superiore and Ragusa Ibla and is reached via 242 steps, though the reward at the top is worth it. In the afternoon private transfer to Modica. This is a very particular town, divided in two parts: Modica alta, whose buildings almost climb the mountain and Modica bassa, down in the valley, with its Corso Umberto, historical centre of the town. What makes Modica a part of Unesco World Heritage is its baroque style and its pictoresque little streets, full of ancient workshop and rich palaces. Reentry in Ragusa and dinner at restaurant Duomo. Situated in an 800's palace, its chef is well known and the restaurant is considered the best in Sicily, for the combination between tradition and innnovation, traditional taste renewed and revisited. Overnight in hotel.
