The Corso Vittorio Emmaneulle
Start your journey from any point along this impressive street. The Porta Reale marks one end of this thoroughfare that extends through the city via the lovely, shady public gardens, a succession of picturesque piazzas, and several inviting churches. Each building boasts its own unique designs with mischievous cherubs, gargoyles and elegant, wrought-iron balconies to admire as you stroll down the street. Don't miss the Chiesa di San Carlo al Corso – climb the bell tower for breath-taking views out over the city.
In typical Sicilian style, Noto's cathedral takes pride of place amongst the sights this beautiful town has to offer. The Cattedrale di San Nicolo's restoration, after a collapse in 1996, has returned it to almost Disney fairytale perfection. The pale yellow limestone exterior glows in the afternoon sun while the interior is simply painted in white.
Villa Romana del Tellaro
Situated south of Noto by the River Tellaro, this example of a wealthy, Roman home is a popular tourist attraction due to the intricate mosaics that decorate the floors. The scenes depict hunters, wild African animals and carpets of geometric designs and make the ideal cultural attraction for those wishing to avoid the crowds at the larger Villa Romana del Casale, one of Sicily's more famous sights.
