What's Ragusa Like?

Spend an afternoon exploring the city on foot and you will quickly fall in love with the idyllic nature of its Medieval streets and picturesque open air cafes. The Ragusa Ibla (Old Town) area of the city is a must see, and its Baroque influences feature quaint alleyways and local boutiques. Like almost everywhere in Italy, Ragusa has its share of religious buildings such as Duomo di San Giorgio (Cathedral of St. George) which carries on the Baroque theme throughout the rest of the city. Enjoy an afternoon soaking up the sun at the Riserva Naturale del Fiume Irminio (River Nature Reserve) or Donnalucata beaches, or head into the city center to spend some money at one of the many local specialty stores.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Ragusa

Ragusa experiences a hot and dry Mediterranean climate, with mild and wet winters. From July to September, the summer afternoon temperatures average at around 28°C, although it has been known to exceed 40°C during heatwaves. There are two main areas of the city, the Old Town of Ragusa Ibla, and the Upper Town of Ragusa Superiore which possesses a dominating overview high above the rest of the city, both of which are home to plenty of historic as well as modern attractions. Ragusa is not as popular with tourism as other areas of Sicily, so try not to expect too many of the locals to speak English. The Ragusa Railway Station in the new Piazza Gramsci part of town offers direct links to many cities throughout Sicily, the most popular being Siracusa.
