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 will touch the following interest points:

Porta reale

San Francesco church

Santa Chiara church

Cathedral
