These wonderful cities were all created, after the terrible earthquake of 1693, in the Baroque style and the churches and palaces are just fabulous. All are quite close together. If you are a fan of the Inspector Montelbano series, (BBC 4), then these are the...More

Restored baroque buildings In the interesting town of Noto. Very interesting visit, not easy to park but worth the effort. Narrow cobbled atmospheric streets and many eating places. Easy to get down to the coast to enjoy the sea views.

Take a day to wander about this amazing town. Steeped in history, plenty to see and nice little cafes too for a refreshing juice or coffee. You will have to pay in to many attractions and do check opening/closing times so you are not disappointed....More
