Ragusa Ibla and Sampieri-Donnalucata Beaches

Day Trips

Ragusa is a beautiful baroque city, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Once you get a view of the town, you’ll be amazed to find out that it is not one city, but two. The old part, Ibla, with it’s narrow streets and steep steps, has the ideal borders the tiles of the tower of of St. Mary’s Tower of the Idria and the green lush of the Ibleo Garden overlooking the valley below.

The special charm of Ibla be found in its small details: the houses leaning against each other, colored tiles from the roofs that they miss every once in a bell tower, a pinnacle, the great dome of St. George ‘s elegance of Baroque and Rococo churches and palaces, the horrible faces of the stone gargoyles that guard prospects and doorways.
Sampieri Beach or Donnalucata

It is one of the most beautiful and extensive coastlines in the province of Ragusa. A beach that extends about 2 km until you reach the area of “Pisciotto”, a unique display of industrial architecture (it was a brick kiln). In 1900, it was destroyed as a result of a fire and made famous by the television series Inspector Montalbano. Part of the beach is covered by a small forest area and is surrounded by sand dunes. The clean beach and the coastline of dramatic cliffs make Sampieri a favorite spot to sun bathe. Along the beach there are plenty of beach clubs and shore lines where one can spend afternoons and evenings.

This is what our guests think

This is a superior tour company. My husband and I have never had a personalized tour before and Francesca and Giorgio anticipated our every need.The individual licensed guides for the UNESCO sites were very knowledgeable but Francesca and Giorgio were flexible enough that they added local nature preserves when they saw our interest. When they heard my uncle landed in Sicily in 1943 with American forces, they showed me where. Originally booked to see Montalbano sites, our time in Sicily was so much more from wine tastings to a cooking class and shared meal with a local family. Giorgio's driving skills and Francesca's translation were invaluableplus they were both a lot of fun to be with. I would use them for any tour in Italy of any size. We were just a couple but they could do tours for groups of friends or family reunions. I also feel we got not only great service but value with our meals and a wonderful B and B. A truly wonderful trip thanks to them.

Judy and Art Frigo from Chicago USA -May 2014

Chic and Unique Tours Ltd recently organised and managed the wedding of a great friend of mine in Italy. Every detail was arranged impeccably to an absolute fine art. Francesca Sanniti was always at hand to ensure that not only the Bride e Groom were content but also each and every guest. A fantastically well organised wedding, and therefore I would have no problem in recommending Chic and Unique Tours.

I'm sitting here in the villa in Tuscany. It's been a brilliant week. The villa is wonderful - and so homely. Francesa has been a wonderful host, organising interesting trips, picking us up, getting a great chef in and looking after us all. Thank you so much for a much needed holiday. x

Charlotte B., York England -March 2013

I spontaneously signed up for a relaxing holiday as I needed a vacation in between jobs. It was the perfect choice! Delicious food&wine, fantastic yoga and great company in beautiful surroundings. Every day started and ended with yoga lessons, and every other day we had fun activities (kayaking, wine tasting and hiking to the top of the volcano) and every other day we could relax at the pool or do excursions on our own. A big thanks to Francesca, Ameriga and my co-guests for an amazing holiday :)
