The Sicily region

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, apart from a short winter in Jan - Feb it boasts a wonderfully warm and dry climate. The island is famous as a destination for the quality and range of its historical sites, dramatic scenery and outstanding cuisine.


Modica is a vibrant small city abounding with high quality restaurants and cafes, well known as a centre of chocolate making. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site on account of its beautiful Baroque architecture.

It lies in an area known as the Val di Noto, the gorges that are typical of the area are breathtaking, and the surrounding countryside, abounding with dry-stone walls and aristocratic villas is idyllic.

The other local towns of Ragusa, Noto and Scicli are outstanding in their own right. Slightly further afield, but an easy day trip away are the cities of Caltagirone, famed for its unique ceramics, and Syracuse with its classical remains
