Treat yourself to a tour of Modica with a sweet surprise

The town of Modica is simply stunning and a tour while you’re in Sicily is a must, so why not avoid the crowds and treat yourself to a private one?

The medieval centre of Sicily, this superb locale is teeming with impressive sights and bucket-list spots, including the breathtaking baroque cathedral and surrounding churches. A place of traditional culture and customs, there are a few UNESCO World Heritage stops along this route which almost all tour operators are bound to include in their tours.

But the real heart and soul of Modica, its literal ‘dark’ side, is its reputation for the production and sale of world-famous chocolate! Made using traditional methods and recipes, the quality of this bonbon in the Modica region is renowned throughout Italy and is definitely a must on the to-do list of anyone with a sweet tooth. Many private tours will encompass a long stopover in a chocolate factory where you will discover the skill involved in creating truly artisan chocolate as well as getting the chance to taste a mouthful or two and purchase some edible souvenirs.

When your stint in Willy Wonka land is over, you’ll be free to discover the other treasures of Modica in your own time and find the perfect savoury meal to match your sweet excursion – be sure to ask your guide for tips on where to eat!

This is the perfect opportunity to go a little chocolate-crazy – after all you wouldn’t want to offend the Chocolatier – but remember to bring plenty of water because degustazione di cioccolato (chocolate tasting) is thirsty business.
