Modica offers a great range of shops for every type of taste, but for the tourist looking for hand- made, souvenirs and local specialties the best place is along the street of the historical centre in Modica Bassa. Here it is possible to find boutiques with local products, especially culinary ones. When visiting Modica you must drop into the local culinary stores that sell traditional Modican chocolate,which is made using an ancient method with fine cocao beans and sugar. We recommend you go for a walk along the main shopping street, Corso Umberto, where you can find a variety of shops and boutiques (in particular designer clothes and shoe stores) the popular pastry shops and delis. You will not only enjoy the walk but also the marvelous view of the baroque style buildings and exciting shopping.

Another good place for shopping is the commercial area, Modica Sorda, a few kilometers away from the historical centre, and along the main road the S.S 115. This is where you can find shopping centres, department stores which sell all sorts of items: clothes, shoes, leather and house-hold goods.

Another important street for shopping is Via Sacro Cuore, well connected with the historical centre Modica Bassa and Polo Commerciale of Modica Sorda, not forgetting to mention the boutiques situated in Modica Alta. Lastly for those who love local products and tradition you could visit Frigintini, situated in the countryside, where you can taste the best produce prepared by agricultural experts and farmers.
