In the historical center of Ragusa, the De Stefano Palace - Luxury Hotel stands out among many examples of late Baroque, neo-classical, art nouveau and eclectic architecture. The period residence, restored to its original and refined neo-classical elegance, is situated close to the down-town shopping area and at a short walk away from the path that leads to Ragusa Ibla.

The original façade and the excellent location make the De Stefano Palace a compendium of the natural, historic and artistic curiosities which characterise this corner of Sicily.

During refurbishment, preference was given to restoration of the original materials and the 19th century frescoes which embellish the ceilings of the rooms in the palace. The result is an intriguing and unexpected blend of an exceptional historic frame and an interior designed with furnishings tending to simple, restrained lines and contemporary comfort.

A perfect marriage between antique charm and the dictates of modern living, we offer the most demanding tourist a unique and unforgettable experience.

The charm of the interior decoration and the ample communal spaces creates a magical and luxurious atmosphere in an exclusive historic context. The palace’s prestige and the excellent position make the De Stefano Palace - Luxury Hotel a magical place from which to set out and explore south-eastern Sicily, the island’s myriad inspirations and infinite seductions, its mysterious and lesser-known corners.
