Paying Homage to Giacomo Puccini

The 45th edition of the Infiorata di Noto (flower festival) will be just as magnificent as ever in one of the most unique settings in the world. The city of Noto in the Syracuse province of Sicily will roll out its flowered carpet from May 17- 21, 2024. (Please note, it will be open to the public beginning on the morning of the 18th).

The carpet made of 400,000 fresh flowers is 122 meters long and 7 meters wide and will be visible for the entirety of the festival thanks to an irrigation system.

This year the theme is the great Italian composer, Giacomo Puccini and all 16 of the scenes will reflect his various operas as well as the city of Noto. Via Corrado Nicolaci with the Church of Montevergini and the Principe Nicolaci Palace with some of the most beautiful balconies in the entire world will create an atmosphere like nowhere else.

The Cathedral of San Nicolò, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002, and the entire city of Noto will all be involved with various events, performances, and food markets planned over the four-day festival. The three magnificent staircases that connect the lower city to upper Noto will be uniquely decorated as they are every year on the occasion of the event.
