Communication with the owner, Rudia was very easy. The thorough directions for arrival were clear and easily followed. We found the apartment to be just as lovely as the photos show, the bed very comfortable ( unlike the often found very hard ones) and the terrace was so wonderful for relaxing on.
The location of this rental could not be better as it is just a few steps from the Corso Umberto, the main street through the lower portion of town which is much easier for walking around as compared to Modica Alta (up on the steep slope). Everything you could want is within a five minute walk and do not miss eating at one of Rudia’s recommendations, Putia ru Vino which is a very short walk away and serves delicious Sicilian cuisine at reasonable prices. There is a cafe just about across the Corso when you walk down from the apartment that has the best Illy coffee and light flakey coronetti. I do not remember the name but you will see the Illy coffee on a sign.
You will not regret renting this apartment as it is very special!
