Our first stop includes a visit to the Baroque city of Modica to enjoy some time in the city centre and the popular "Il Corso". Modica once so important as to constitute a kingdom within the kingdom, is today a prosperous town still dependent on its traditional agricultural economy. Admire the beautiful flight of steps leading to the main entrance and the statues representing the twelve apostles are the main features of S. Pietro's church. The main street or "Corso", with its mixture of magnificent buildings, modern shops and alfresco cafes. It is a thriving town centre. Modica is also renowned for its chocolate making, including ‘Cioccolato di Modica’ or ‘Cioccolata Modicana’. The Spanish introduced the recipe which they got from the ancient Aztecs of Mexico. Chocolate shop owner welcome visitors to taste and sample, one the most popular being the Antica Dolceria Bonajuto, which is a well known chocolate factory shop.

We continue next to Scicli, a UNSECO World Heritage Site. It is well worth wandering around this quiet little town, overlooked by a massive rock on which sits the unfinished church of San Matteo. Of the many palaces built by aristocratic families includes the Palazzo Benventano, just off the main Piazza, with its façade decorated with Saracen gargoyles. The church of Santa Maria la Nova, one of the many baroque churches in the town centre, houses Scicli’s best known icon, the Byzantine wooden statue of the Virgin Mary wielding a sword and ridding a white stallion. The Chiarafura Caves Dwellings, dug out in the cliff in prehistory, saw the last residents leave as late as 1958.

The final stop is another UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is Ragusa Ibla. It is typical Sicilian southern town built on a plateau. The charming streets are adorned with beautiful Baroque style buildings, in fact, one of the finest buildings in the whole of Sicily is right here, the Duomo of San Giorgio, which was designed by the architect Rosario Gagliardi. Before you set off on your walkabout adventure, enjoy the ambience of Ibla at a local cafe with a nice cool drink. Make your way to the Piazza and onto the main winding street which takes you to the Giardono Ibleo. On the way take a look at another of Gagliardi's work, the small but elegant church of San Giuseppe. The Giardano Ibleo is a haven of peace and quiet with an exquisite view of the valley below and beyond. Just outside the entrance to the garden is the gothic Portale San Giorgio, it is all that remains of the original church of San Giorgio, it was unfortunately brought to the ground during the earthquake of 1693.

The order in which we visit the locations may change as they are mentioned above.

We return back to the port of Pozzallo to board the Catamaran for our departure back to Malta.
