This apartment has been restored with great care and attention to detail and could not be in a more privileged location. The main thoroughfare, the Corso Umberto, is a five-minute walk away as is Modica Alta where you’ll get a real feel for authentic local life.
Climb up steps to the side of the church and into a vine-covered walled courtyard; downstairs is the large foyer and the eat-in kitchen, and an exquisite staircase leads upstairs to the two bedrooms, a grand living space, a terrace and a balcony with views over the lower part of the city.
Modica centre is full of small restaurants and trattorias. You’re in one of the UNESCO towns of southern Sicily, with other cities notable for their Sicilian Baroque architecture such as Scicli, Noto and Ragusa within 45 minutes’ drive. Trains in Sicily are not the most regular but a direct service from Siracusa takes just under two hours.
