  • The new town of Noto is located on a beautiful natural site. It is very easy to navigate since there is a main street which concentrates all the beauties of the city: 3 successive places with churches and palaces. The highest Cavour Street contains also some architectural beauties as well as the streets that connect the two axes. The place is very touristy and there a lot of small stalls selling trinkets. In the shops prices are often inflated as the bottle of limoncello a €15 while on the road we bought in the supermarket at 3 and €5! Attention: around 12:30-13: 00 Palace and churches are closing almost all.

  • Great location to get to know the city of Noto and its surroundings. Mrs. Antoinette was very welcoming and caring, stylish and unobtrusive. The rooms are decorated with antique furniture and cleaning are carried out every morning, are very large with vaulted ceilings and cool. Thanks for your kind hospitality Silvia and Tabitha
