SCICLI AND MODICA
Scicli is an ancient town, which grew up around two valleys divided by steep ridges, emerging onto a wider vale. Early settlements were up on the ridges – the town’s principal church, San Matteo, sat on a commanding position overlooking the smaller valleys as they opened into a wider vale.
Over time, as the defensive functions of the site grew less important, the town shifted down the hillside and nowadays the inhabited area fills the wide level vale like a grey flood of buildings below the old church on its headland. This overlooked town has a scenic location and charm that at least matches its rivals, though, along with an enjoyable sense of discovery for the visitors who explore its streets. The tour will last about 2hrs and you’ll have about 1h 30 min to have lunch (not included). Transfer to Modica which is a particulary famous for its chocolate and it is an appealing destination for food-lovers, making a good holiday base or day-trip destination.
Important in Medieval times, Modica was rebuilt after the great earthquake of 1693 and now boasts fine late-Baroque architecture as well as a medieval old town. The trip will end with a typical “Dolceria” chocolate factory where you’ll have a private tour of the factory and you’ll taste different types of chocolate.
