Local Sights

Sciara’s position in Ragusa means that it is perfect for exploring this incredible city. Ragusa Alta is the more modern part of town, full of all the shops, bars and restaurants that you could need. Ragusa Ibla, meanwhile, is the delightfully picturesque old town centre. A Baroque fantasy, this part of town has amazing options for food and wine, as well as stunning winding streets, extraordinary buildings and fantastic views.

The area surrounding Sciara is known as the Val di Noto - a UNESCO World Heritage Site with several towns offering wonderful examples of the Sicilian Baroque architecture. Noto, Modica and Scicli are especially magical towns with achingly beautiful town centre. Modica is also worth a visit in order to try the delicious and traditional chocolate made with an ancient technique.

You can find some lovely sandy beaches nearby. Visit Marina di Ragusa where you can spend the day on the sand, wither at a lido or a free part of the beach. Slightly further away is the incredible Vendicari Nature Reserve. Here you can enjoy almost-deserted stretches of sand with wonderful flora and fauna. Calamosche Bay is a highlight for many.
