A place in the sun??? This one is definitely over budget!!!!

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... read more

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.

The exterior, the facade of the Palazzo is stunning. Very beautiful the many rooms and the two long corridors on the 1st floor of the building (the "piano nobile"), albeit the bedrooms were not open. There is a little alcove, though. Also very impressive is the courtyard, which seems to be overlooked by most.

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.

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!
