The glossy online lifestyle and travel magazine, Hero & Leander, has included Modica and our Hortus Suites in its round-up of 14 picture perfect European towns. We have plenty of accommodation in the countryside around Modica but if you’re looking for a super-chic experience in a central location, it would be hard to beat these swish suites, just a stone’s throw from the Duomo.
