You can't go wrong here, everywhere and everything is a visual treat. Driving time Agrigento to Villa Romana : 1. Dedicate the morning to explore the ancient ruins of the Ionian coast on a guided tour of Syracuse about three hours.

Learn about the region's Greek and Roman history as you explore the architecture and then continue the walking tour through Ortygia—Syracuse's beautiful old town, located on a spit of land which extends into the Mediterranean. The afternoon is yours to spend at your own pace. Today is a free day to spend as you choose. In a devastating earthquake almost erased every town and city in southeastern Sicily after which the cities were rebuilt in the Sicilian Baroque style.
Climb the steps to the 18th-century Duomo di San Giorgio to view the only example of a Catalan-Gothic style portal.
And if you're up for the exercise, be sure to climb up the steep stairway to the upper town for breathtaking views over Ibla. Alternatively, there's the option to board the trenino little train from Piazza Duomo for a casual ride along the city's main streets. Next up is Modica a little way south 30 minutes. Built on the sides of a canyon, the city is known for its traditionally made chocolate, following an ancient Aztec recipe.
Here you might like to head up to Pizzo Belvedere for stunning views over the Modica Valley. If there's time, travel south 20 minutes to the often-overlooked ancient town of Scicli. Follow the elegant pedestrianized Via Penna for pretty views of Baroque palaces and churches. You won't want to miss a visit to possibly one of Sicily's most beautiful baroque buildings, Palazzo Beneventano on nearby Via Duce d'Aosta. And if there's time, take the zig-zagging path to the abandoned San Matteo church perched on an overhanging cliff to enjoy the sweeping vistas of Scicli below or visit the also abandoned cave settlement in Scicli's old Chiafura district.
After a full day, when you're ready, make the return drive back to Syracuse. Driving time Syracuse to Ragusa Ibla : 1. Get an early start today and head up the coast before cutting inland toward Europe's largest active volcano, Mount Etna.
