What to expect

The city of Ragusa is located in the Iblean mountains and, along with Ragusa, it is part of the UNESCO Heritage Sites of Sicily. The main economy of the area revolves around dairy cheese and agricultural products like olives, carobs, legumes, and grains.

Upon arrival, we will walk through the historic town of Ragusa Ibla to see the wide array of Baroque architecture it has to offer, including several stunning palaces and churches. There will be a light lunch in a local trattoria.

In the afternoon, a short drive will take us to Modica, a small village famous for chocolate. Modica’s chocolate is one of the most famous products of the Ragusa area. It is still made the same way the ancient Aztecs made chocolate in Mexico and its tradition dates back to the 16th century. The technique was brought over by the Spaniards who in turn learned about it in what is now Mexico. We will then return to Syracuse.
