The Flower Festival of Noto

Each year from the 15th to the 18th of May, the city of Noto, known as the Sicilian capital of Baroque architecture, holds its annual flower festival. For over 40 years, residents of Noto have celebrated the arrival of spring by designing impressively lavish floral displays along via Nicolaci, home to some of the city’s most elegant palazzos. Using the colorful blooms, floral artists create massive, mosaic-like designs along the street — a once-in-a-lifetime experience for any Spring visit to Sicily.
