Typical Day

After a wonderful breakfast, you travel to the next magical city, the provincial capital - Ragusa. You will start the route from the upper part of Ragusa and will go down to its lower part. You will also walk through one of the attractions of this city - the Santa Maria Staircase, which has been connecting both sides of the city for 200 years and is the only foot passage. You will also see most of the 18 monuments included in the UNESCO heritage list and find out why the hereditary earl gave his unimaginably beautiful and well-groomed garden for public use.

So, you approached the main part of this day - lunch. You will dine at the best restaurant in Sicily with two Michelin stars - DUOMO. Chef Ciccio Sultano always surprises guests with his refined taste in interpreting traditional Sicilian cuisine in a new format.

Then you will visit some friends from Valle Dell'Acate winery, one of the oldest wineries in the region, where you will taste great wines. You will find out why the wine is stored in oak barrels, what temperature and humidity should be in the cellars, and how the future wine is fermented. You will visit the old winery, where the exposition is dedicated to the history of grape processing. There, you will see old objects reminding us of how old the culture of winemaking is. You will walk around the winery and drive to the best local fish restaurant to have dinner, relax, and share fun experiences.
