Day 2

Modica

After breakfast, we head to Modica. As we pass over the 300m-high Guerrieri Bridge, we catch the first glimpse of Modica.

In the past, Modica was badly damaged in the 1693 earthquake. After, Sicilians rebuilt it in Baroque style.

At first sight, you will see that the city is divided into two parts, “higher” and “lower”.

Palazzos and houses rise from the bottom of the gorge. They seem stacked one on top of the other.

Moreover, Modica is the custodian of a 400-year tradition of Sicilian chocolate making.

During the tour, we will visit one of the oldest chocolate shops in Modica. In addition, you will experience this Aztec chocolate recipe.
