Ragusa

Sicily, Italy
Ragusa travel packages
A shining city on a hill, if ever there was one.
There are two Ragusas (in addition to it being an old name for Dubrovnik). Ragusa Ibla and Ragusa Superiore. Ragusa Ibla is the one you've seen in pictures and maybe the Montalbano serial. Before the 1693 Sicily earthquake the town of Ragusa was located on the site of the current Ragusa Superiore. After that was destroyed, a new town was built on the slightly lower neighboring hill, in the late Baroque style fashionable at the time. This is the town known as Ragusa Ibla. It is one of eight towns that make up "The Late Baroque Towns of the Noto Valley" UNESCO World Heritage listing.
Fast forward to modern day, when a new town was built on the ruins of the original, and this is Ragusa Superiore, where most locals live. The rabbit warren of narrow streets and alleyways of Ibla is in stark contrast to those of Superiore. Superiore is a great place to avail yourself of all the conveniences of a modern town, as well as some excellent restaurants where you'll be the only foreigner, it doesn't have the same magic that Ragusa Ibla enjoys.
