The palazzo is beautiful, you can visit the hall of mirrors, two euros for two minutes of tourism, alternatively 4 euros and you can visit two other attractions as well.

Worth seeing 100% Barroque architecture from the 18th century. Very small city, lots of little restaurants, coffeehouses, a few small hotels. I just drove there from Palermo it was a roughly 3 hours. The drive is fabulous and you can see Mt. Etna.

Beautiful but we felt even the €2 per person visit was a rip off. That only buys you access to the room of mirrors; which is a disappointment as it has two medium size mirrors and 7 small ones with small lights. We were told...More

This is a very nice building as to its architecture. Like most buildings reconstructed after the earthquake that destroyed the town of Noto, it is Baroque style. However, to visit it inside, one has to pay. That may be because there are exhibitions going on...More

Located beautifully opposite the majestic Cathedral , the building of Palazzo Ducezio started in the mid 18th Cent. and completed in the early 19th Cent. , the second floor was built in the early 20th Cent. . Nowadays it serves as City Hall .

We only saw the hall of mirrors and it has only 2 big mirrors opposite each other you can 'see' yourself many times, but at an angle.

You will only see one room of the Ducal Palace but it's astonishing richly decorated in the Baroque style. The ceiling defines the term "Trompe L'Oeil" I nice visit which triggered much discussion with other visitors.

Palazzo Ducezio is situated on the principal street of Noto - Via Vittorio Emanuelle. Now here is the city hall of Noto. The baroque building designed by Vincenzo Sinatra approx. 300 years ago is beautiful and impressive. Ducezio (Ducetius) was a king of local Sicels...More
