Today you are greeted at your hotel and driven through the countryside to the “Val di Noto”. Here sunny hills and the coastal plains are all cultivated with grapevines, olive groves, wheat, fruit and vegetables. Typical dry stone walls delimit the countryside roads. Reach one of the best Wineries in Eastern Sicily and have a relaxing time savoring wines and local products at the dining room or outdoor in a pic-nic style. The wine experience can be enhanced by a walk through the vineyards. Please clarify your preferences about tasting or light lunch and visit of the vineyards at time of booking.

The “Val di Noto” is an area badly damaged in 1693 by a strong earthquake and largely rebuilt in Sicilian Baroque style. Noto is the town symbol of Baroque style and indeed it gives the name to the “Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto” UNESCO World Heritage site. Walking through the center of Noto you can admire Baroque churches, including the amazing Cathedral and palaces with pompous balconies with wrought iron railings and cherubs, lions, sirens and grotesque figures that decorate the facing. Noto is called the “Garden of Stone” because of its typical honey-colored stone. The main street is pedestrian and very pleasant to walk. The visit of Noto is independent.

A few kilometers away, directly overlooking the sea, a fisherman village will captivate you. The village extends around the harbour and it is characterized by narrow streets and little stone houses with roof tiles and colored windows, while a large square is the center of the town. Once fishermen were used to practice tuna fishing and today the Tonnara is still well visible. Enjoy a nice walk in the old town, full of characteristic restaurants that animate the square, surrounded by the ocean and the breeze.

At the end of the tour you will be driven back to your hotel.
