Noto is a charming town with attractive Baroque architecture. This palace is worth the visit, everything has been restored and is well described.

Visiting the Palazzo was something we wrote down as a must-do during our day trip to Noto. We were greeted by the friendliest man at the ticket counter. He let us borrow a guide book and also told us it was OK to take pictures (although we later saw a sign that said it wasn't). We were literally the ONLY... More

Pop into this palace to get an idea of what life was like for a wealthy family at the height of this city's importance. Stand on the balcony and imagine the town bustling beneath you. An interesting walk through for 15-20 minutes. Very hot inside though!

Worth a visit to take a picture as nobles lived in Sicily. The staff was very nice and helpful. The entrance fee was a few Euros.

Stunning and interesting - and wonderful view of Noto. You can imagine the ballroom dances...hear the music. A must -see. We loved the wall paper/painting and ceiling paintings. Wonderful detailing. By the way, whoever doesn't feel like seeing this, can have a gelato or two without making others feel bad that they are left behind!

This is a wonderful old house with a few different rooms that you can wander through. Don't miss the amazing walls and the wallpaper in the rooms. Also, the balconies cannot be missed. The staff (a young woman) was very nice and helpful. The entrance fee was a few Euros, maybe 3-4.
