    Do you want to fully enjoy the charm and the beauty of the¬†Val di Noto? this is the tour for you!¬†¬†Noto is one of the¬†UNESCO World Heritage¬†site in Sicily and through our tour you will lose yourself in the splendor of the ‚ÄúCapital of Sicilian Baroque‚ÄĚ.

    You will be enchanted by the historic buildings that made the city of Noto one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Palaces, churches, terraces, staircases: all of them were built using the local variety of stone, characterized by a golden hue with pinkish shades. The whole city looks like it is a unique architectural complex. 

    The tour through Baroque starts from Porta Reale: it is the real city gate. It was erected around 1800 in honour of the visit of Ferdinand II of the Two Sicilies.  The most impressive and rich churches are: Saint Francis of Assisi’s Church, Saint Clare’s Church and, obviously, the Duomo Cathedral of Saint Nicolò. The most important building is that of the town hall: Palazzo Ducezio. It was built during the 16th century, inspired by ancient French palaces. Another stop you cannot miss is the most famous street of the city: Nicolaci Street. It takes the name from the Nicolaci Family, who resided in the homonymous palace. Every Spring, Nicolaci Street hosts the Infiorata Flower Festival, an event internationally awaited. In those days Noto is full of tourists from all over the world.  

    Deciding what to do in the Val di Noto, SiciLife has then selected for you the perfect combination of culture, history and experiential tourism. In fact, left the small town of Noto, you will visit the vineyards immersed in the scenic beauty of the area. The owners of the winery we chose for you, will guide you to discover the secrets for the preparation of a wine which is now appreciated by every market.
