What You Can Expect
Continue by coach along the Noto coast and stop at Villa Romana del Tellaro, a restored Roman villa that’s known for its excavations of ancient mosaics. After paying your entrance fee, head inside and gaze at the intricately designed floor mosaics that depict hunting scenes and Greek mythological tales. Then, return to your coach and continue traveling south.
The final stop of your day is in the sleepy fishing town of Marzamemi, one of the most southern towns in Sicily. Your visit here is spent as free time, so make the most of it by swimming, exploring or shopping for artisan crafts to take home. Perhaps take a stroll around the picturesque Old Town and admire sights like the Church of San Francesco di Paola as well as the tonnara – the town’s famous tuna production factory. Be sure to ask your guide for restaurant recommendations and enjoy a seafood lunch (own expense).
Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time and travel back north to Taormina. Your tour finishes with a drop-off at the start point.
The Baroque buildings in Noto are very impressive.
Marzamemi is a delightful and not very touristy seaside town.
This was a very interesting trip. Noto was well worth a visit but too much of the information was in Italian and not much in English. The guide was knowledgeable about the history and architecture. We stood outside buildings and churches for a long time and I would have preferred to wander around inside. The mosaics at the Villa were wonderful as was the stop off at Marzamemi which is a non-touristy town where I walked around and had lunch. The coach driver did a great job in getting us back through the Sunday traffic. I will definitely do more trips with Viator. Many thanks
