8. Noto: Sicilian Baroque Architecture Guided Walking Tour

The guided tour of Noto will take you back to the Baroque era with its buildings embellished with decorations, stairways and statues like a stone garden and having become the capital of Sicilian Baroque. The guided tour starts from the entrance door to the historic center, the Porta Reale or Porta Ferdinandea, near the Church of St. Francis of Assisi and the nearby Convent of the Holy Savior. We go up the beautiful staircase to be able to admire one of the most beautiful interiors in Noto, with wonderful frescoes and decorations. Walking along the main street, a few steps away we find another beautiful church in which the Baroque style is very recognizable especially inside: we are talking about the Church of Santa Chiara next to a former Benedictine monastery, where you can admire the columns embellished with stuccoes, statues of the apostles and putti. The tour continues arriving in the Piazza del Duomo which houses the majestic Palazzo Ducezio, seat of the Town Hall, built between the 18th and 19th centuries, with its frescoed roof and rooms in which the mirrors create games of visual illusions that make them more large. In front of this baroque-style jewel stands the monumental staircase that leads to the stupendous Cathedral of S. Nicolò, the very symbol of Noto with its honey color that characterizes it at sunset and which we will visit inside. Built in the eighteenth century, it has collapsed three times over time, it has been rebuilt even if many frescoes have been lost; the beautiful facade has two bell towers, one housing a bell while the other has a clock. We continue the visit reaching another well-known symbolic place, namely Via Nicolaci, the street where the infiorata is set up (a carpet of flowers lying on the road) which attracts many tourists and we will also visit externally from some of the most beautiful buildings in Noto. One of these palaces for sure is Palazzo Nicolaci with its beautiful and famous balconies decorated in the lower part with statues, masks, animals and various figures carved in the limestone in the typical Baroque style. Walking through the alleys of the historic center we can admire the Loggia del Mercato which was once the seat of the Noto market with the wrought iron loggia and today used for cultural events. We end the guided tour by discovering the elegant building that houses the Tina di Lorenzo Theater in neoclassical style and the marble Fountain of Hercules built in the 1700s.

What people are saying about Province of Syracuse

We decided to stay 2 nights in Noto (from 10/06 to 12/06/22) to really see it as we enjoy walking the streets and taking in the atmosphere and architecture. We had pre-booked a walking tour guide ( Vittoria) for the first evening at 5.00pm. She was great. It gave us a chance to see most of the notable sights of Noto with recommendations of which buildings to visit during our next free-time day for those that were closed in the evening. She was very informative and we really appreciated our trip to Noto thanks to her. I would highly recommend Vittoria for those visiting Noto.

The tour was initially canceled due to bad weather, but the company offered us a 2 hour tour (instead of 1 hour, like the one we had originally booked) for the next day and without price changes. Very nice boat ride, driving the boat was a fantastic gentleman who was born and raised in Ortigia and then explained many things to us about the history and mythology related to Syracuse and Ortigia. Experience highly recommended!

Nathalie was great. She has been living in Sicily for several years and was able to talk about the "sewing box". She was very knowledgeable and kind and cheerful. I recommend you and this tour unreservedly.

Beautiful walk to discover Syracuse by sea. Large caves with crystal clear water and pleasant swimming in front of the ramparts. Thank you for this moment. To do

Perfect Experience! Exceed expectations! Competent and very nice guide, Crazy tour!
