Ragusa: Sicilian Baroque Tour with Wine & Gourmet Food

2. Ragusa: Sicilian Baroque Tour with Wine & Gourmet Food

Marvel at beautiful landscapes, taste delicious Sicilian wine, and soak up a delightful Baroque atmosphere on a 3-hour tour in Ragusa. There is only one way to discover Ragusa and that is to cross it. In order to do so you need really comfortable shoes, a strong desire to get to know the place, a perfect visual memory to capture the beauties of this splendid land, and some space in your heart to bring back home the Sicilian hospitality and generosity. Recall in your memory the old Italian films where life ticks slowly by with no excitement, only with silent admiration: simple doorways and well decorated portals, gates and windows adorned with flowers, jutting balconies supported by grotesque masks, sumptuous decorations of churches, deformed simplicity of narrow steps, and small quiet alleyways.  Traditionally, the best way to serve this magnificent baroque atmosphere is Sicilian wine. Ragusa is a wine-connoisseurs’ paradise: red or white, but always intense, deep, and unexpectedly rich. The soil composition, lots of sunshine days, and healthy biodiversity make excellent conditions to maintain the antique wine tradition in Sicily.
