Ragusa Italy

Not for nothing is this place a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s one of those wonderful hill towns that has to be explored on foot. It was two separate towns until quite recently: the old original site of the town before the earthquake that destroyed a lot of nearby towns in the 1600s, The top of the hill was the area where the wealthier citizens re-established themselves rather than deal with the rubble.

The town is said to have 2 Michelin-starred restaurants but I wasn’t able to even try for one.

Travel Information

To get the blue dome of Chiesa di Santa Maria dell'Itria in the foreground, you need to be up the hill. I walked up the path between the houses until I found a road. A short walk and there it was.
Realising there was a road, I went back for the car and my wife so we could drive up. I don’t recall the names of the roads we took but Google Maps made it easy. There is a small church further up the hill if you want more greenery in your shot.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people
