In the south-east of the island, there is a place called “the other Sicily” for the diversity and uniqueness of its history. This place is Ragusa, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a baroque jewel that has its heart in the ancient part of Ibla where there are 14 monuments recognized as heritage of humanity. Surrounded by green valleys, for nature lovers there is the Irminio River Nature Reserve and the Cava Randello Nature Reserve.
The centre of nightlife is located in Marina di Ragusa with its promenade full of cafés, bars and nightclubs crowded with young people having fun. A truly amazing mix is what you breathe at Piazza Armerina , defined as the city of mosaics for the Roman finds, where the medieval old town blends in with the baroque style. And while you get “tired” during cultural tours, at Modica , the city of one hundred churches and Quasimodo, there is a gentle remedy to recover energy: an antique, excellent chocolate.
