Hi there. Today I am in Noto in the Sicily. As you can see I am already a bit suntanned.
I have a nice hostel room. All for me with 12 beds. It lacks only the rest of the soccer team. Well, maybe the city is not very popular in travel agencies, but after this post, it will definitely change.
Noto, a litle bit of history
Noto is probably the most baroque city in the Island and maybe even in entire Italy. The reason why it is so beautiful is quite tragic. In the 17th century, the city has been completely destroyed by an earthquake. The rich owners of the city decided to rebuild it as the most modern city in Italy (at that time). Therefore, it is rebuilt in the most fashionable style of the time it is baroque of course 😉 Let’s judge the effect.
Ok. My score is 7 out of 6.
Tasty local Sicilian food
For the dessert, something for the courageous guys. The fruit of a local cactus. Useful tips: do not forget to peel out it. And watch out that the spikes do not hurt your fur.
Baroque art in Noto
The characteristic features of all the region are the sculptures under the balconies imagining fantastic creatures. Ah, baroque!
I will have my limb muscles like Schwarzenegger after all these steps.
Kitty in Italian means il gatto .
Maybe I am not the most well-behaving bear in the world but when comes to eating I always empty my plate as the first one. Good boy.
After the breakfast, I head off further.
Stay with me. Next stop Ragusa. And guess what… MORE BAROQUE and sun.
Xo Xo. Metody the bear.
