      Gelato and granita are delicious, especially from the artigianale gelateria/pasticceria. Buon appetito!

    Yes, it is a good place to visit in the Val di Noto; I have just been to the vegetable market today. I am due to update a few pages! Thanks for the visit to my pages :) Lia

    The time around the flower festival looks to be a good time to visit, and Dolceria Costanzo sounds to be a great place for a coffee break.

      Thanks, Albert. I have more to add when I get round to it! Noto is a good day out from Siracusa for us. Lia

    A beautiful place. I love the idea of making pictures on the street with flowers and petals.
