Palazzo Failla Hotel’s fantastic location is matched by its style and service. 

Discovered in the heart of the city of Modica amid grand architectural gems and immense cultural heritage, the hotel is set within the walls of a beautiful building dating from the late 18th century, with many features and furnishings ensuring the Palazzo Failla retains its distinctive charm and character. The demeanour of a historic residence of Sicily is reinforced by stone walls, artistic room designs, wooden beams and classical touches, reflecting the majesty of the streets and squares of historic Modica.

Palazzo Failla Hotel is home to 10 bedrooms, from double to luxurious suites, all featuring beautiful décor including patterned floors and frescoed ceilings. Attractive antique furniture populates the spacious rooms, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be devoid of modern amenities bridging the gap between classic and modern. The Palazzo Failla’s services go beyond your room, with a quality restaurant where you can enjoy delicious Sicilian dishes, a café serving up refreshing coffee and tasty sweets, a Conversation room where you can relax with a book amid aristocratic décor, and a range of great tours and classes including tours of the city and a cookery school.

The hotel’s superb location makes exploration around fascinating Modica an effortless task. The city emits grandeur and history, something reinforced by its UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Don’t miss the Cathedral of St. George and the Church of St. Peter, conveniently located just a stone’s throw from the Palazza Failla.

About the Local Area


In Modica there are two churches (Chiesa’s) which are definitely worth a visit: San Pietro, in the centre of Modica along the main street; and San Giorgio, in Modica Alta. The latter is a decent walk out of the town centre, however you are rewarded with beautiful views if you can make it up 'the grand staircase'. Modica is known for its Cioccolato al peperoncino (chilli chocolate) and there are several chocolate shops, museums and factories.


Marina di Modica
Here you will find a beautiful sandy beach which is great for swimming, and many sand dunes. In the high season there are many activities restaurants, cafes, shops and ice-cream parlours.

Vendicari, Noto
In the heart of Vendicari Nature Reserve lies an 8km stretch of golden sand dunes, lagoons, cliffs and hidden bays. There are no sun loungers, bars or water sports and no crowds. A truly wonderful place to swim and well-suited to families but be sure to take anything you might need including water with you.

Pozzallo is a pleasant seaside town with bars and restaurants along its seafront. Also just out of the town along the coastal road towards Noto there are secluded, unspoilt beaches and coves that will be less crowded than in town.


Sagra delle Teste di Turco (Scicli)
A celebration of the liberation of Sicily in 1091, following the Norman victory over the Arabs, with the town’s traditional cake, known as Turks’ Head, and a glass or two of local wine.


Val di Noto
Drive around the late Baroque towns of the Val di Noto. The valley holds a series of picturesque towns composed almost entirely of Baroque churches, palaces and house - a must see for architectural and historical enthusiasts.

Mulino ad Acqua – Museo Cavallo d’Ispica
A beautiful original watermill exhibit from the early 18th century - open every day and night visits are also available to pre-book.

Bicycle Rental
The best way to see Modica is to cycle around town. You can rent an electric bicycle and tour around the city with no parking space worries. There are group tours and touring routes to follow or you can just follow your nose..!
