After a relaxing morning, we will head to our hotel – 4* Le Magnolie Resort in Frigintini for check-in, lunch (included)*, and some free time to rest. Late afternoon, we will leave for Ragusa Ibla. This city is famous for its incredible cultural attractions such as the Giardino Ibleo and St George’s Cathedral.

Our next stop is Belvedere Shopping Complex (or similar) where you will have some free time to do some shopping and have lunch (extra). We then visit the city of Noto, a meticulously planned Baroque masterpiece, with a historic centre that is composed almost entirely of Baroque palaces, churches and houses. Late afternoon transfer to the hotel. Dinner will be taken in a restaurant close by (included)*.

Our last day in Sicily will start by visiting an oil factory and a cheese making farm (extra), then proceed to an Agriturismo where we will have a delicious typical Sicilian lunch (extra).Late afternoon, we leave for our last excursion to Scicli, where the series of Inspector Montalbano has been filmed, and explore the beautifully conserved baroque streets in this really lovely little town.
