The cities of Baroque: A tour through elegance and class to experience an adventure beyond time.

Experience a journey across the eight Sicilian cities located in the south-eastern part of the island: Caltagirone, Militello Val di Catania, Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa Ibla and Scicli.

They were built after the earthquake in 1693 and today are considered a remarkable testimony to the exuberant brilliance expressed in art and architecture during the late baroque period.

Listed among UNESCO’s world heritage sites, they have become a tourist destination for the elite. A perfect destination for those who love to be surrounded by history yet don’t want to miss out on good food and beautiful scenery.

A honeymoon is a unique moment to dedicate time to oneself but it is also an opportunity to visit new and fascinating places. During your tour don’t miss out on a few days in Noto - European capital of Baroque. Buildings, churches, monasteries, squares and fountains, all modelled in the local soft white stone, have been meticulously shaped into a splendid “GARDEN OF STONE.”

Take a walk hand in hand, from Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza Immacolata, Piazza Municipio and stop to admire the magnificent Cathedral.

But save time to wander through all the small side streets or even better, ask the local tourist office to provide you with a guide who will take you through the historic centre, giving you an alternative view. He may even tell you about popular legends - a return to the past, even more romantic and charming by night, where the dim street lights create an almost magical atmosphere.
