Full description
A comfortable private transfer from the city of Catania will take you to Noto, a small town that lends its name to the surrounding area, Val di Noto, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.

Noto is an architectural gem, so gorgeous you might mistake it for a film set. The town is home to one of Sicily's most beautiful historic centers. During this tour you will visit Corso Vittorio Emanuele, an elegant walkway flanked by thrilling baroque palazzi and churches. Dashing at any time of the day, it’s especially hypnotic in the early evening, when the red-gold buildings seem to glow with a soft inner light.

Although a town called Noto or Netum has existed here for many centuries, the Noto that you see today dates to the early 18th century, when it was almost entirely rebuilt in the wake of the devastating 1693 earthquake. 

Your expert guide will also take you through an itinerary that willk touch the following interest points:

Porta reale
San Francesco church
Santa Chiara church
Cathedral
Palazzo Ducezio
San Carlo church
Via Nicolaci and Palazzo Nicolaci
Hercules fountain
San Domenico church
