Pay a fee (Euro 10,00 per person) to enter the Villa Romana del Casale, a UNESCO-listed 4th-century Roman villa that is known for its stunning collection of impeccably-preserved mosaics. Get a close-up look at the vivid tableaus, which are thought to have been produced by North African artists. Afterward, enjoy free time to refuel with some lunch at the nearby restaurant (own expense) before hitting the road once more and reach Syracuse in approx. 2 hours driving. Ragusa Ibla and Modica stops - Option B:  After 2 hours and half driving along the South coast stop into Ragusa Ibla, a fascinating Baroque town: the sight of the jumble of houses, churches and civic palazzi piled on top of each other, clinging to the walls of the gorge, is really quite breathtaking. Free time to stroll around before reaching in a few minutes Modica, a town divided into two parts connected by numerous flights of steps. Palazzi and houses rise from the bottom of the gorge seemingly stacked one on top of the other. In Modica you will admire magnificent Baroque churches, with their inspiring domes, bell towers and intricate facades. Modica is custodian of a 400 year tradition of Sicilian chocolate-making: we suggest to taste chocolate in one of the shops of the town. Then drive approx. 1 hour to reach Syracuse.
