When we talk about ibleo territory we mean all the east-south Sicily part: from the Iblei Mountains situated at the north of the Syracuse border until all the 45 km of sea coast. If you love art and culture you will find a wide range of things to do among museums, churches, old building to visit full of baroque luxuries typical of the past Sicilian nobility and old workplaces which have been used today to be handwork places where everyone creates little masterpieces.
If you love the sunshine and the sea breeze you can dive into the crystalline water and the golden sand beaches where all the places from Donnalucata until Pozzallo are situated. You really cannot miss Calamosche beach, the suggestive Tonnara di Vendicari, the wild and unknown Playa Grande and the long and beautiful Sampieri beach which terminates with Fornace penna: a huge archeological building right by the sea.
Two must-visit places are: Montalbano’s house at Puntasecca with a suggestive terrace which faces the sea and the Donnafugata Castle surrounded by a huge park which contains a rock-sicilian style labyrinth and thanks to all this this place has been chosen several times for shooting films.
If you’re an architect or a nature lover, you will find a huge amount of natural paths to be ridden by bike or to be walked to find out about all the ancient civilities. In these little paradise spots you can still find more things to do to make your trip more interesting and unique: Trekking inside the ancient, green and wild Vendicari Oasi or you can visit Cava D’Ispica which is an archeological site or even getting into the dark of the Necropoli of Pantalitica and still have a lot of fun with riding horses for the youngest, having lunch on a boat or getting lost in the nature.
Exploring the south east of Sicily means getting all yourself into the purest and most popular Sicilian baroque thanks to all the 2002- Unesco winning cities ( Ragusa, Modica, Scicli, Noto) which have been declared as Worldwide Heritage.
