The palazzo Nicolaci a Noto is beautiful inside and out and worth the 4 Euro's entrance fee. It is a magnificent example of restored baroque architecture and the frescoe's in the ballroom are amazing. A great example of how the wealthy lived in these times.

While you are taking a walking tour of Noto, make sure you take time to turn off the main avenue to take a look at the facade of this palazzo. We did not have time to go inside, but if the balconies are any indication of the beauty, it must be worthwhile to visit the interior.

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!

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.
