Do you want to live wholly the charm and the beauty of the Val di Noto? It is the tour for you! Noto is one of the UNESCO World Heritage site in Sicily and through our tour you will lose yourself in the splendor of the “Capital of Sicilian Baroque”. Moreover you have the chance to visit one of the most famous local wine cellar and tasting its Black Grape of Avola, which intense flavor is more and more appreciated internationally.

You will be enchanted by the historic buildings that made the city of Noto one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Palaces, churches, terraces, staircases: all of them were built using the local variety of stone, characterized by a golden hue with pinkish shades. The whole city looks like it is a unique architectural complex.

The tour through Baroque starts from Porta Reale, that is the real city gate and continues admiring the most impressive and rich churches (Saint Francis of Assisi’s, Saint Clare’s and, obviously, the Cathedral of Saint Nicolò), the town hall Palazzo Ducezio and the most famous street of the city: Nicolaci Street.

Every Spring, Nicolaci Street host the Infiorata Flower Festival, an event internationally awaited. In those days Noto is full of tourists from all over the world.

This tour is the perfect combination of culture, history and experiential tourism. In fact, left the small town of Noto, you will visit the vineyards immersed in the scenic beauty of the Val di Noto. The owners of the winery we chose for you will guide you to discover the secrets for the preparation of a wine which is now appreciated by every market. There will also be the tasting of typical Sicilian delicacies (e.g. cheese, bruschettas, home made seasoned bread or similar) together with the tasting of different DOC wines of Nero d’Avola.

This tour is guaranteed with minimum 2 people and will be operated with maximum 25 people.
