Description

We’ll leave from Pozzalo Harbor for Regusa, where you’ll discover two cities in one: modern Regusa rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake and ancient Hybla Heraia. The city’s architectural gem is the Duomo of San Giorgio, a mid-18th-century cathedral with a magnificent neoclassical dome and stained-glass windows. The town’s public park, the Giardino Ibleo, is a great place to stroll. We’ll then head to Modica. Rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake, Modica is now a lively and dynamic city with over-sized churches and steep stairs running from the bottom of the village to the top of the slope. The city is built around a junction of steep valleys, with the oldest part of town, Modica Alta (“Upper Modica”) on a ridge and Modica Bassa (“Lower Modica”) along the valley floor. It is particularly famous for its chocolate, but that is not what certified it as one of the area’s UNESCO-listed baroque towns. Nevertheless, during our tour, we’ll stop at a chocolate factory to taste a recipe coming directly from the Aztecs.
