In Noto,between 16 and 18 May 2014, will take place the famous "infiorata". Infiorata is an Italian tradition that sees the streets paved with flowers. The Sicilian city of Noto holds one of the most stunning Infiorata. On Friday, artists begin preparing the street with soil and begin preparing their floral masterpieces. Individual artists display their talents on side streets and the public is invited to browse the "street gallery" on Saturday and Sunday. On Monday the children of the town are allowed to rampage through the flowers, destroying everything they can stomp beneath their little feet. It is a symbolic display of youth and renewal that is worth staying around an extra day to witness.
Pachino, the nearest town, 2 km. far, is famous for the "pomodorino" (little tomato" and for the "bottarga" ( egg of tuna ) and also for the wine, especially "Nero d'Avola" that is sold not far from the house at 1,50 euro per liter!
