Modica is simply breath-taking. This UNESCO-listed Baroque town in Sicily is built in a valley, where beautiful houses and churches look as though they’re literally stacked on top of each other. Split into Lower and Upper Modica (old town), - both are equally historic and connected by steep stairways. From the main street, Corso Umberto I, you’ll find the Duomo di San Pietro, an 18th-century Baroque style building whose decorated steps dominate this stretch. Then there’s the striking, ornamental Church of San Giorgio, with its amazing views. Modica is a place you could spend all day looking at astounding architecture. A large, authentic Sicilian town with many restaurants and bars to reward you after much walking up and down flights of steps, just make sure you taste some Sicilian chocolate whilst there. Made here for 400 years, there’s even a chocolate festival in the autumn: the Chocobarocco. The nearby beach is Marina Di Modica.
