It worth travelling from CATANIA vicinity to syracusa and NOTO where in NOTO you can see intensive Baroque architecture and decorations. One should enter the palaces and churches as well as just roeming in the streets and pavements to get the impact. In NOTO there are also many bars and cofee shops to take some rest while walking through.

Delightful little town to visit - beautiful buildings, especially the palazzi, churches and cathedral, and a stroll along the pedestrian Corso Vittorio Emanuele and the side streets off is a most pleasant way to spend time, daytime or evening. The books and websites will give you much information - whether just to see the architecture or for a meal or drink, if you are in the region, you must visit. There is a one way traffic system which can be a little confusing - some streets there is free parking but we decided to use the car park in Via Piola at the eastern end opposite the gardens and a few minutes walk to the Corso - €2 bought us 3 hrs.
Best to try first time in daylight as we found driving out at night somewhat difficult with little directional signage.
3 generations of our none young/teens family (25 - 86 so no category) really enjoyed visiting this town and would recommend it.

Noto is a amazing small town up in the hills over the Mediteranian sea. Re-built "in the right time" after the earthquake it could be constructed in the highest peak of baroque.
And in the late afternoon sun the facades show their golden colour ... there is a lot more to adore in Noto!

If you are visiting Syracuse, you are a short drive to Noto, a town well worth a visit. Walking is the best way to see Noto; we parked near the outdoor market (where we purchased some spices for pasta sauce) and hoofed it in the direction of Noto cathedral. After earthquakes, much of this beautiful town is in the baroque style of architecture.

All the towns that were Unesco listed have beautiful examples of Sicilian Baroque, so to explore the area you will need a car and live in the area around Noto, Modica, Ragusa. And it is not just the ones singled out by Unesco, you can find examples of this architecture all around the area.
