The beautiful baroque town of Noto is included in UNESCO World Heritage List, with the cathedral and its numerous palaces and churches, a triumph of Sicilian baroque, and it is described by the art historian Cesare Brandi as the "Garden of Stone". In every corner you can find baroque friezes, capitals, churches and noble palaces.
In Noto you should not miss: the characteristic procession of San Corrado, the Patron Saint of Noto, which occurs on February 19th and on the last Sunday of August; the religious traditions of Easter week; the Infiorata, a flower festival which occurs in third and fourth week of May.
Leaving the town behind, you can take the roads inland and go searcing for those intense flavors and aromas which give identity to this territory rich in culinary excellence, and great wines.
Noto is just 5 kms away from the beach of Lido di Noto, with its crystal clear waters, and a few kilometres from other sandy beaches among the most beautiful on the island, including the nearby Cala Mosche, Eloro, Marianelli, Marchesa, San Lorenzo, Cittadella, Portopalo, the island of Capo Passero and the “Isola della Correnti”. The famous Natural Reserve of Vendicari is a wonderful place where you can find unspoiled natural beauty, where in some seasons rare species of migratory birds nest which makes this an ideal place for bird-watching.
30 kms away is Siracusa, the capital of Magna Graecia, with the old center of Ortigia and its splendid archaelogical area and Greek Theater.
The surrounding area offers a variety of cultural attractions and other beautiful baroque towns: Modica, Scicli, Ragusa Ibla and Palazzolo Acreide.
There are also sanctuaries and the ruins of the ancient city of “Noto Antica”, the mosaics of “Villa del Tellaro” and the necropolis of Pantalica.
The caves and the gorges of Cava Grande of Cassibile are worth a visit with the small emerald lakes where you can swim and the river area of Valle dell'Anapo, with it's fish and fresh water crabs.
So, this is a good base to explore south-eastern Sicily, with its cities, Blue Flag beaches, trails and gorges, to visit the Greek and Roman ruins in the surrounding countryside or go to one of the wineries in the area.
The mild climate, the mountain paths, ancient villages, caves, churches and convents are unequalled.
I recommend that you spend at least two weeks' holiday in this part of Sicily. This will be just enough to be able to enjoy it's masterpieces and the unique and excellent cuisine and great wines.

Ho la passione per il buon cibo, l'arte, la natura, l'architettura e il design.
Amo la mia isola ricca di paesaggi, di arte, di sapori, di cultura, un’isola per il mare, ma anche una meta per lo spirito.
Mi piace viaggiare ed andare a caccia di sapori e profumi intensi, scoprire prodotti golosi, assaporare gli oli nuovi, i vini e soprattutto gli spumanti, assaggiare formaggi, mangiare pesce ottimo. Ricerco i territori ricchi di eccellenze gastronomiche e di grandi vini.
Mi piace trasmettere ai miei ospiti la passione per questa terra del sudest con i suoi tesori, i suoi profumi e le sue immense ricchezze.
