Val di Noto

The Val di Noto was one of the three administrative regions of Sicily under the Arabs who controlled the island in the 9th and 10th centuries. A Val was not a valley, but a vallum (a sort of province).


The Val di Noto is justly famous for its ‘baroque towns’, but the south east of Sicily also has over half of the blue riband beaches in Sicily, a number of Michelin starred restaurants and a reputation for glorious food, as well as stunning countryside.
