The Southeast of Syracuse & The Southeast/Italy

Introducing The Southeast of Syracuse & The Southeast

Dominated by the Monti Iblei hills, Sicily's southeast harbours some of the island's most beautiful towns. In particular, Unesco-listed Noto, Modica and Ragusa stand out for their sumptuous baroque architecture and stunning historic centres. And while these places are not exactly undiscovered they are not yet on the main tourist radar, and outside of peak periods are largely free of visitors. Elsewhere, the region is quietly rural, its gently rugged landscape characterised by weathered limestone cliffs and deep rocky gorges.
