Social and Cultural Benefits:
Kiosk is based in the city centre of Ragusa, one of the most picturesque parts of Sicily. Ragusa Ibla is one of the UNESCO-listed Baroque towns of south-eastern Sicily with a new airport in Comiso, ten miles away, and only 20km from the coast. Following the great earthquake of 1693 that destroyed most of Ragusa Ibla’s ancient buildings, the town was rebuilt on higher level ground. Today, Ragusa has two parts namely Ibla and The City of Ragusa which is the modern upper town from where the view over Ragusa Ibla is quite breathtaking.
There are lots things to do in Ragusa such as wandering through the ancient medieval/baroque town of Ibla with its labyrinthine lanes, eating out in stylish restaurants, stopping for a drink in an olde worlde pub or sunbathing on the wonderful sandy beaches in Marina di Ragusa only half an hour drive from the city centre. Quality of life is one of Ragusa’s biggest assets. The weather is typically Mediterranean, the food is fresh, locally sourced and its quality is recognised all over the world. Finally, it is important to remember the cost of living is low compared to the rest of Italy meaning your money goes further.
