    1. Catania: Syracuse, Ortigia and Noto Transfer and Tour

    After being picked up from your accommodation in Catania, visit the magnificent Neapolis in Syracuse. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, this famous archaeological park houses a Greek theatre.

Or, if you prefer, you will have 1 hour of free time to have lunch in one of the amazing restaurants in the alleys of the city. Upon reaching Noto, you will exp...

    This could have been a fantastic trip. Our driver/guide was excellent. She made some quick decisions en route when faced with a blockage on the highway. However, the 4x4 was most uncomfortable. There were 7 of us in an 8 seater vehicle. It was very, very hot and the air con did not do the job. If it was blasted out, the driver had to shout out information. As it was, at each stop, we were in a state of heat exhaustion. The 2 people in the back row had even less access to air than we did in the 2nd row. I cannot recommend this company and their vehicle.

What people are saying about Noto

The tour is well-timed and you can see beautiful cities with a lot to see inside and around. The Real highlight though was our guide Alessio who leads this tour. He is not only well-researched and speaks perfect English, but he is also very charismatic, funny, entertaining and cool, that it feels like travelling with a friend - a friend who knows his Region and beyond and is also a safe and good driver. We can recommend this Tour as much as possible!

Special thanks to Gioele, who took care about us during the whole trip and gave us all the important information about all places that we visited. He was very professional and made a very nice company to us, even though it was very hot weather. Thank you very much.

Great day - saw all the highlights - time to explore at leisure - gorgeous hill towns - loved the drive between Modica and Ragusa - deep valley and hillsides of vineyards
