Only the last half mile on the access road are very narrow - use caution and your horn. The deserted town site has parking and is free. There is a map (now and then) at the entrance. The main ruins have signposts in Italian and...More

If you are visiting the stunning baroque town of Noto, it is well worth the 20 minute drive north to the original town (Noto Antica) which was destroyed and completely abandoned after the 1693 earthquake. It is a magical place to wander around. Not excavated...More

The City destroyed by an earthquake is more than worth the trip. The ruins still show the magnificence of the area and the environment has been well preserved. A long walk around the destroyed houses and down the valley is a gift.

We took a day trip by train from Ortigia to Noto for the day and enjoyed lunch with a walking tour of the city. Local trains are quick and easy. The town has many beautiful buildings and the hillside setting stunning. Well worth the time.

Up in the hills away from Noto, the ruins are an evocative reminder of the destructive powers are earthquakes. It's easy to walk around. We went down to the stream where the tanneries and mills were - worth the effort!

The old city of Noto gives you amazing arcitechture. However it is hard to get in to a lot of the buildings because of high stair cases. This is of course because the city is located along a mountain side. Be aware of slippery roads....More
