Ragusa - A city of sights

Updated: Apr 20

Sometimes, stepping into a place transports you into an ethereal world that you never knew could look so picturesque. Ragusa is just that, a beautiful and unique historical town in Sicily. Located on a hilltop, it’s famous for its unusual geographical layout and stunning Sicilian Baroque architecture. Ragusa is divided into two towns: Ragusa Ibla (lower old town) and Ragusa Superiore (upper town). These two parts of Ragusa are separated by a deep ravine. Narrow winding streets and staircases connect the two parts and taking a walk from Ragusa Superiore down to Ragusa Ibla opens up the most breathtaking views of Ragusa Ibla. You can see pretty much the whole town of Ragusa Ibla from that staircase. The views are amazing!
