Useful city facts

  • Like the rest of Sicily, the Province of Ragusa has a typically Mediterranean climate with very hot summers and mild winters. The average high temperature is 32°C (90°F) in August, the hottest month, and 16°C (61°F) in January, the coldest. The summers are extremely dry, with practically no precipitation from June to August, but there’s a significant increase from October to mid-February.
  • Inhabited since antiquity, the Province of Ragusa has been home to many different civilizations like the Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, and Norman Vikings. The city of Ragusa was devastated by a strong earthquake in the late 17th century, but many sites of these earlier cultures survive in the smaller towns and now-abandoned settlements of the province. 
  • The city and the province of Ragusa should not be confused with the Republic of Ragusa, a maritime city-state that was once the name of Dubrovnik, a coastal town in modern Croatia that is also a popular travel destination. The inhabitants of Ragusa are known as ragusanos.

Top destinations and activities

  • Ragusa. Sitting spectacularly on a hill between two valleys, Ragusa is one of the eight Sicilian cities of Val di Noto, a region that has the UNESCO World Heritage designation. Made up of the hilltop Lower Town and the even higher-sitting Higher Town, Ragusa is famous for its stunning Baroque and Gothic-Catalan architecture. Exploring the city involves a lot of climbing as the streets are very steep and many are not accessible by car, but the beauty of the place makes it worth it.
  • Comiso. A little, tranquil town to the northwest of Ragusa, Comiso has its fair share of attractions. These include the nearly 2000-year-old Roman hot springs, the San Francesco dell’Immacolata church, and even a large Buddhist pagoda. Just 18 km (11 miles) from Ragusa, Comiso can be reached in about 25 minutes.
  • Kamarina. Settled more than 2600 years ago by Corinthian Greeks, Kamarina was one of the first cities in Sicily. It suffered heavily during a number of invasions and was eventually abandoned, but the remains of the ancient settlement can still be seen at the Kamarina Archaeological Park. Located some 32 km (19 miles) west of Ragusa and reached in about 35 minutes, Kamarina is well worth a visit. 

Traffic and parking tips

  • Italians drive on the right-hand side of the road. 
  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain, the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • While streets inside cities and towns are intercity highways in Sicily are generally in very good shape, some rural roads and roads in the mountains can have potholes and other issues. Farm animals crossing the road can also be a problem. It’s important to exercise extra caution when driving in the countryside and in the mountains, especially after dark. 
  • When driving some mountain roads in Sicily during the winter time, you are required to have snow chains in your car. These roads are called transito con catene in Italian. Not having snow chains can lead to rather pricey fines. Do ask your rental car provider about snow chains if you’re visiting Sicily during the winter months and plan to drive in mountainous areas.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy, including two in Sicily: A20 between Messina and Palermo and A18 between Messina and Catania. Neither of them crosses the Ragusa Province. 

The toll fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Beaches. A visit to Sicily is not complete without enjoying its long, beautiful beaches, and luckily there are plenty of them just a short ride from Ragusa. The nearby Marina da Ragusa (24 km / 15 mi from Ragusa) is a popular coastal town, but travelers also love the blue flag beaches in Pozzallo, the picturesque Punta Secca, and the quaint Sampieri. 
  • Modica. Another beautiful little town famous for its baroque architecture, Modica is home to such gems as the Duomo di San Giorgio Cathedral, Chiesa di Santa Maria di Betlem Church, and the Modica Castle which at has an impressive clock tower. Located just 16 km (10 miles) southeast of Ragusa, Modica takes 15 minutes to reach.
  • Agrigento. The capital of a neighboring province, Agrigento is best known for its Valley of Temples.

Further destinations

  • Syracuse. Nowadays Syracuse is a cozy mid-sized city on the eastern coast of Sicily, but 2,500 years ago it rivaled Athens for wealth and beauty. An absolute wealth of landmarks has survived (albeit some only as ruins), such as the Temple of Apollo, the Font of Arethusa, and a number of amphitheaters. Other attractions, like the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Santa Lucia alla Badia Church, are slightly younger, but just as impressive. Located just 90 km (54 miles) east of Ragusa, Syracuse can be reached in about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  • Catania. Less historic and more industrial than many other Sicilian cities, Catania nonetheless has its fair share of attractions, like the Cathedral Square and Ursino Castle. The number one attraction of Catania, however, is undoubtedly Mount Etna in the foothills of which the city is located. The largest volcano in Europe, Etna, which is still active, has absolutely stunning landscapes, and, of course, offers amazing views of the rest of the island. The higher parts of the mountain can only be accessed with a guide. Catania is 105 km (65 miles) northeast of Ragusa and can be reached in 90 minutes by car.
  • Madonie Regional National Park. Located in the north-central part of Sicily, this national park is one of the most beautiful protected areas on the island. Made up of a number of high mountains, it is also home to woodlands of various types, unique fauna, and cozy little villages scattered across its valleys. Located 190 km (118 miles) north of Ragusa, the national park can be reached in about three hours.
