DoyoubelieveifIsaythatwestayedinthecentreofRagusaIblawherewecouldparkourcarjustinfrontofourhotel? Ohyes, that’ssotrue! If you have read my past articles about the other towns of Sicily you already know why parking quite near the hotel is such a relief, it is a very rare occasion in Sicily. But itisnotallaboutthiswonderfulB&B in Ragusa Ibla!

They had electric bicycles for customers’ use which was great to go up and down the hills of Ragusa.

I only want to give you one advice, in case you reserve at Epoca call the sisters to get the information on parking because they have limited numbers of city pass and if it is not available any more, the sisters will guide you to the best solution.You don’t need a car in this town so once you park it you won’t touch it again until you leave.
