    “Very rural! There are generally larger distances on small country roads. For shopping and eating you have to go on average 6 ... 9 km (and according to claims, if necessary also significantly more). There are several small supermarkets and various restaurants nearby.

    Attention! Sicily is great! Although we were mostly stationary, we had after 14 days 2000 km with the rented car. Tours to Syracuse, Taormina, Catania or Mount Etna are all-day trips from here! Even on the highways around Modica 80 km / h is considered a speed limitation, since the roads are not so good. However, the speed restrictions hardly seem to hold anyone. ;-)”

    “The house is outside the village. Numerous shopping possibilities (very good assorted supermarkets) in about 15 minutes (by car) distance. Bakery within 5 minutes. The town of Modica has a nice old town. No tourist center, patina with charm, Catania is 1.5 hours away. Syracuse is an hour away. Agrigento is just 3 hours away (bad roads). Marina dii Modica and Marina dii Ragusa have nice free and especially clean beaches with suitable infrastructure and are 35 and 45 minutes away respectively.”

Scicli (24 km from Ragusa; 26.000 inhabitants; 160 meters above sea level) is an elegant town situated in a wide valley among rocky hills, at the confluence of three valleys: S. Bartolomeo, S. Maria La Nova and the riverbed of Modica.

consequence of the terrible earthquake of 1693, which upset a big part of Sicily. The town was rebuilt in baroque style, following the principle of illusion effects obtained with the right arrangement of buildings and churches, creating this little baroque jewel that Scicli is today.

The town tour could begin in the wide and picturesque "Piazza Italia", surrounded by beautiful palaces of the eighteenth century and dominated by the impressive calcareous rock on which arises the ancient church of San Matteo. On a side of the square stands out Matrice, a church of the eighteenth century dedicated to S. Ignazio. The beautiful baroque facade is rich of statues and sculptures which make it a real jewel of art. Then pass to the church of S. Bartolomeo of the XV century, where there is a wooden crib of 1573 but subsequently renewed. It is the only church that was spared by the terrible earthquake of 1693.

Palazzo Beneventano is one of the most important baroque monument of the territory near Ragusa.

Another important monument is the monastic area of Carmelite which dates back to 1386.

Other interesting churches are: Santa Maria La Nova in neo-classical style, dated back to the XV century, San Matteo, Santa Maria della Consolazione, del Rosario e della Croce.

The most important religious celebrations in Scicli are: Madonna delle Milizie celebrated the last Saturday of May; the Cavalcata di San Giuseppe; and the celebration of Uomo vivo or "Gioia". The Cavalcata di San Giuseppe take place the weekend after March 19; it is a picturesque procession through the city illuminated with great bonfires. The "Holy Family" is the head of a procession consisting of horses saddled with wonderful floral compositions, the best of them wins a prize. "L'Uomo vivo" is celebrated at Easter. The statue representing Christ risen from the dead is brought in procession by young people who make it run through the city in a collective joy.

Scicli has the wider coast of the province. Many kilometres of beaches and cliffs in the warm Mediterranean sea that is almost always calm during summer from May to October, with warm temperatures also during winter, never below10ºC. Little creeks and long coasts are equipped with all comforts day and night.

Economy in Scicli is based almost exclusively on intensive agriculture and early products. Cultivation in greenhouses that covers the entire coast area is reaching the first places among the economical resources of the city and province. Other important products are citrus fruits, oil, carobs, wine and flowers.

How to get here by car from Catania Airport. It's 130Km and it will take 1h:15 by driving.
At first follow indications for Tangenziale and E45 route: take both and continue to driving for 6.5 km looking for the A18 route to Ragusa. After 10.7km turn at right in SS194 route and go straight to reach the SS115 route, after around 90km.
Arriving near Ragusa follow the direction to Marina di Ragusa and take the SP25 route at second exit on right.
After 11km you'll arrived at a cross road, in corner with the La Palazzola Bar Pizzeria: turn at your right after 750m take the 1th at your left and after 450m turn at your right.
Then take the next one at your left.
