If you want to discover the Baroque beauty secrets, this is the tour for you! An incredible full-day adventure, dedicated to the exploration of three fascinating UNESCO heritage sites: Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Noto.

Today pick-up at Siracusa and departure to the Val di Noto area. The first stop of the tour will be Ragusa Ibla. This is the old part of the city and an undisputed reality of Baroque art. Here you can admire numerous eighteenth-century churches and buildings.
Soon after, you will discover another jewel of the Sicilian Baroque: Modica. To give you a unique experience, we can organize for you an unmissable lunch (as option, on request: surcharge needed) in a typical trattoria of the place: a real journey into the tradition of Sicilian cuisine. Obviously, you will have the opportunity to visit the town with its churches, the facades of noble palaces, the fountains, but also the winding alleys.

After the visit of Modica, we will head towards the capital of Baroque: Noto. It is dotted with numerous historic buildings of great artistic importance: the palaces, churches, terraces and stairways have all been built with local stone, with a golden color tending to rosé. The whole city seems to be a single architectural complex. The most important building is Palazzo Ducezio, seat of the town hall, built in 1700, which recalls the style of ancient French palaces. A few steps away there is Via Nicolaci, famous throughout the world for the infiorata.

At the end of the tour, return to Siracusa.
