— 2 nights

Town of Bridges

Once a flourishing ancient city, Ragusa was rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in 1693.
Venture out of the city with trips to Scicli (Scicli & Gli Aromi Sicily) and Spiaggia di Santa Maria del Focallo (in Ispica). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Ragusa Ibla, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of San Pietro, step into the grandiose world of Castello di Donnafugata, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Duomo San Giorgio.

Ragusa is a city and comune in southern Italy. It is the capital of the province of Ragusa, on the island of Sicily, with 73,288 inhabitants in 2016. It is built on a wide limestone hill between two deep valleys, Cava San Leonardo and Cava Santa Domenica. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.HistoryThe origins of Ragusa can be traced back to the 2nd millennium BC, when there were several Sicel settlements in the area. The current district of Ragusa Ibla has been identified as Hybla Heraea.The ancient city, located on a, 300m high hill, came into contact with nearby Greek colonies, and grew thanks to the nearby port of Camerina. Following a short period of Carthaginian rule, it fell into the hands of the ancient Romans and the Byzantines, who fortified the city and built a large castle. Ragusa was occupied by the Arabs in 848 AD, remaining under their rule until the 11th century, when the Normans conquered it. Selected as County seat, its first Count was Geoffrey, son of Count Ruggero of Sicily.
