    Interesting information about tonnario, nice bird viewing. The beach has a lot of vegetal
    Debris. Once your got through it the water was clear and refreshing. 3,500 e to park and 3 e for park ticket.

    I was in Noto for the day in early June. It wasn't that busy even on a Sunday, just a few tourists. Parking was easy on one of the main narrow streets. Lots to see, lovely restaurants, a beautiful, charming town.

    It's quite stunning and impressive from the outside. The grand stairs leading up to the baroque building is quite impressive. The interior although understated compared to other cathedrals is still wonderful. It's no surprise this area of Noto achieved UNESCO status.

    The palace has a number of reasonably decorated rooms, headlined by the beautiful Ball Room. Easily worth €4/pp and 20 minutes of time. Look at the balconies when outside - the supports are varied and amazing. And make sure to step outside onto the balconies when visiting.

    Amazing place to spend the day far from everything , having the moment to get the real relaxation.
    Ps. There's no shops or bars better to take all what you need ( water , food ... )

    In the east side of the Sicily Island, there is the beautiful city of Noto, in the Siracusa area, this is a great example of the Baroque.

    This beach is part of the vendacari reserve. When we visited in September we followed the signs from the main road. It is a dirt track / unmade up road to a car park that charged 3 euro. You then walk back to the entrance of the reserve where they were taking temperature checks, and recording visitor details for track and trace. Entry to the reserve was then another 3 or 3.5 euros( can’t quite remember!) per person. There is a family ticket but this is just for immediate family (eg 2 adults with children) it can’t be used for siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles etc (there was a long argument going on about this in Italian!)
    You then walk into the reserve to the beach. It’s a good 20 mins when you are carrying all your beach stuff and in the heat (no shade) so come prepared. Eventually you get to steps down to the beach. The beach is a cove and very pretty, although being a nature reserve the sand had quite a bit of natural debris (pieces of wood etc) so don’t expect immaculate groomed sand. There are no facilities (as you would expect) so you need to bring EVERYTHING with you. It was very windy the day we went, not sure if that is normal so it made it hard to keep an umbrella up and there were waves in the sea- but still very nice for a swim. We didn’t explore other beaches on the reserve but good for at least one visit. However I think there were overall nicer beaches in the area.

    Excellent moment to spend with extremely friendly French guide Rossario, who knows almost everything in the palace. At first we found it expensive to pay 25 euros for guided visit but after the visit we found it worth double or more because we were able to go through not only the history of the place but also the passion and the passion in art collection from the owner of the palace. Top of the best explorations in Sicily so far.

    Beautiful compact church, unusually shaped inside. The 2 Euros for the choir and tower access is the main attraction - get the classic view of the cathedral and the square in front, with plenty of room to walk on the top of the tower. You can also see where the nuns used to sing down to the church.

    We happened upon this archeological site while traveling through the area. A farm property once covered the remains of a Roman villa which primarily contain very detailed mosaic floors depicting various hunting and mythological scenes as well as intricate borders.

    Would definitely recommend this beach area. Lovely walks around here with bird life evident in lagoon behind beach. Many flamingos.
    Parking is tricky along road, but there is a car park. It is a reasonable walk from beach area, about 20-25 mins, which would be fine if just walking, but not so easy in 30 degrees plus carrying beach umbrella, towels etc.

    San Lorenzo Beach Club is a great way to spend a day. We visited during the week and pre-booked ( essential for a weekend id say ) for 20 Euros for two beds and a parasol .. bargain ! Not only were we very close to the beach the club but taking lunch here is a must. Great menu with superb pizzas to boot ! Showers are also available to wash yourself down before leaving .
    All in all a recommended day out .. Superb !

    We love this beach bar! So lucky to find it. Beds are spacious and comfy, music is fab and the Bar / Restaurant is great. The staff are absolutely lovely, fun, friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is superb, from a TunaOnionTomato salad to the delicious PestoPastaKingPrawn and Spaghetti Seafood - every meal was delicious!
    Prices are very reasonable and it’s all very clean. Beach is pure sand. Make sure you reserve your beds, it’s the best beach club in Lido di Noto!
