Sicily: Ragusa & Siracusa

Southeastern Sicily gets overlooked by many travelers. And that's a shame. In this travel talk, Rick Steves' Europe co-author and tour guide Sarah Murdoch explains why the sleepy, historic hill town of Ragusa is a wonderful home base for touring this undiscovered corner of Sicily, with side-trips to pristine Noto and chocolate-crazy Modica. Then we'll visit Siracusa, from the ruins of ancient Syracuse to the appealing old-town island of Ortigia. Sarah also offers an explanation of Sicily's unique cuisine and aficionado-pleasing wines.
