Restored baroque buildings In the interesting town of Noto. Very interesting visit, not easy to park but worth the effort. Narrow cobbled atmospheric streets and many eating places. Easy to get down to the coast to enjoy the sea views.

Beauftiful baroque town rebuilt after 17 century earthquake. We visited in June on a Sunday morning and managed to park in a side street. Try to ignore those encouraging you into pay car parks. The most beautiful buildings are on the main street with plenty...More
