L'arte del Cioccolato Torrone Cannolo

Reviewed By Tatyana N

Truly artisan pastry and chocolate, which is prepared by a master who had been doing that for 34 years! The artist himself is friendly, open for communication, and I wish I had a cooking class here.
There are wide choice of marzipan figures, chocolate bars, and, of course, cannoli.

Scicli

Reviewed By GavenKent

This became our favourite town and a great place to start a day exploring the area. We stayed near Punta Secca and spent a lot of time on the secluded beach near Sampieri. Scicli was a short drive away. From the Montalbano locations and it's winding streets to fantastic cafes, bars and restaurants it became our go to place to start any exploring of the area. Visited the town four times and barely scratches the surface but grew to love the place. Well worth a visit and well worth the drive from Punta Secca. It's a short drive away from the coast too. Loved it there.

Ragusa Ibla

Reviewed By stephrab - The Village, Manhattan, NY

This is the real deal! Give yourself enough time to just want around this baroque town, the main square, the Gardens, the side streets, meeting and talking with the people, shopping in many of the local shops. Plan on spending at least a couple nights in the picturesque town.

Amazing Cathedral. Many interesting features. No admission. Wonderful views after you climb the steps however not too strenuous and there are alternative paths with less steps and more gentle paths. Totally over the top and a must see in Modeca.

Luckily I was with someone who spoke fluent Italian and Sicilian so I could understand what Ron Carmelu was explaining about the way his grandfather and other people in the town lived. For me, learning about how they lived was the highlight of the day!

We were absolutely fascinated by the owner and his Mather, members of a family of millers since several generation. The water mill and the little museum are very well organised and the owner, son of the last Miller, is a very skilled and enthusiastic guide. This attraction is a real little gem that you do not expect. Top!

Chiesa di San Giovanni Evangelista

Reviewed By Steve_of_N21 - London, United Kingdom

This jewel of Sicilian Baroque is located on the pedestrianised Via Penna just along from the town hall. The wonderful exterior architecture dates from the 1760’s and the interior decorations, such as stucco and gilding date from 1854.
It’s worth visiting just for the ceiling decoration alone, and although a lot smaller than the Dormas in Modica and Ragusa it is just as impressive inside.

Spiaggia di Santa Maria del Focallo

Reviewed By Edo S - Nottingham, United Kingdom

This is a beautifully clean beach. We enjoy peace and quiet and here that is exactly what we get. Very few tourists, if any arrive here. Mainly local people from Ispica populate the beach during August which suits us just fine. From a very selfish viewpoint I'd really prefer tourists to stay away but I'm not a selfish person so I would really love to share this enchanting place with everyone. Ispica itself is not far away and there are plenty of bars with lots of really great ice cream. The sun is hot and the water is warm. The sand is fine and clean. We usually take a picnic but there are plenty of restaurants.
It is really a beach and a town that you shouldn't miss if you are coming to Sicily.

Magnificent Baroque church, lavishly decorated with marble, gold and lapis lazuli. Despite the richness of the decoration, it has a very holy feel. Stunning.
