Nestling in a valley in southern Sicily not far from the coast, Scicli is one of the eight Baroque towns in the Val di Noto Unesco World Heritage site. A laid back place with some beautiful churches, handsome palazzos and a crumbling castle high on a hill, Scicli is well worth a day trip.
Scicli's tree-lined and mostly pedestrianised Via Franceso Mormino Penna is tailor-made for early evening ambling.
