Guiding you through myth and history, Roman antiquities and industrial archaeology, seaside and architecture, our day private tour will finally lead you to discover the archaeological and architectural treasures of the fertile coast of Noto already inhabited during the Bronze Age.
The Vendicari Tower was built in order to defend the old dock in the first half of the 15th century. In addition, its position on the top of the promontory was suitable for tuna fishing. This aspect is currently shown not only by the near 20th-century tuna fishery owned by the Modica Munafò Family, but also by the remains of a Hellenistic-Roman factory for fish processing.
We will then see the mosaics of the Roman Villa of the River Tellaro, whose structures were part of a vast senatorial latifundium of the middle of the 4th century AD.
The last part of our cultural tour will be dedicated to the enchanting Baroque façades of Noto’s buildings, churches and convents.
