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!

Nicolaci Palace in Noto is one of the wonderful works of art of barocco style. the building is wonderful outside and inside. its balconies with the works of art underneath are really impressive while the inside part offers a real picture of the everyday life at that time. Nicolaci Palace is UNESCO heritage and it deserves a visit if you... More

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.

Inside, the palace is nearly empty of furniture, but some of the rooms are painted with frescos of birds and some with mythlogical scenes . It is possible to go out onto some of the... More

It is a photographer's dream. Unfortunately we could not go inside, I wish we did. I can only speak of outside, this is a landmark not to be missed, I want to go back to Noto just to be able to see interior of this palace

Is interesting but cost €4 each to visit and they want their paper guide with photos and explanation of the rooms back at the end! The rooms are quite interesting and you can go out on some of the balconies for a really good look around the city. In that respect the price is ok because then you don't need... More
