Infiorata flower festival in NotoThe Infiorata flower festival is certainly the most important event yearly organized in Noto. The Infiorata takes place during the third week-end of May. It's like a festival of spring to celebrate the best period to visit Sicily, when the countryside is green and filled with flowers before the hot summer months. The central point of the Infiorata festival is via Nicolaci in the town centre of Noto. The little town of Noto is located southerly from Syracuse and is in the Unesco world heritage list for its elegant baroque buildings. Every year a new theme is choosen for the Infiorata.

 The artists start their working on Friday evening. Via Nicolaci is divided in parts and the flower-masters draw the draft of their works on the road. The works are completed with thousand of flower petals. On Saturday morning the Infiorata is finished and via Nicolaci appears as a long and colorful flower carpet. There are also a lot of other events organized in Noto during these days like a baroque historical parade, exhibitions, food and wine tastings, guided tours, music concerts and much more. Every year, during the Infiorata, Noto is crowded with visitors from all over the world.
