charming greeting and offered an English guide book to borrow for my tour. It's not disability friendly as all palazzo rooms on 3rd floor. The ceramic floors are amazing and the ceiling in the dance hall magnificent. Great views from the blaconies

The entertaining wing of the palazzo is open and decorated in period. It is welk worth a vist. A look through the courtyatlrd gives an idea of the lifestyle of the upper crust. The library across tge entrance is even more impressive with folios from the birth of printing.

Located on Via Corrado Nicolaci, just off the main drag of the old city, this palace is well worth a visit, particularly on a hot day. Part of the building is still inhabited, so only part of the upstairs rooms are open to the public. The staircase and the entertaining rooms in particular are very impressive. The balconies are elaborately... More

This is one of the few non-church of the baroque era in the Noto area that can be visited - a must-see therefore. The staff are Friendly! There is no tour in English, our average Italian is poor... the lady at the ticket desk gave us the best 2 minute summary of a place I had in years and let... More

We visited this Palazzo hoping we would feel the grandeur of times gone by but that was a bit disappointing... It is a beautiful palazzo but there was an exhibition that took away some of the better views of the rooms. Fake marble on the staircase? Why??? But as it is not a very expensive palazzo to visit it is... More

Badly renovated, poor furniture, fake marble for the staircases is irrelevant for the location, and a terrible contemporary exhibition distributed in the rooms.

Really well conserved interior decoration and furniture. Baroque building with furniture and decoration from late 19th/ early 20th century. Enthusiastic young staff - and just a couple of Euros entry! A real gem!

You have to use a bit of imagination here - there is very little in the way of furnishings/ art work etc. But if you love antique wall coverings, tiles and chandeliers, then look no further. The ballroom especially gives a sense of the way things were. In my humble opinion it needed a bit of a dust - but... More

This palace was actually lived in to the 21st century. Restoration has found original decor and ceilings are exciting. There is some original funiture but this is not equivalent to, say, an English country house. If you like the exterior by all means go inside.
