Tourists who come to visit are more interested in the beauty of the city itself than the shops located there. In our city there has been an increase in visitors numbers following the reconstruction of the dome and the nave of the Cathedral. Consenquently the small existing stores along the main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, have adapted to the tourist’s primary needs. This explains the presence of a smaller number of clothing stores, footwear etc., and a greater number of souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, rotisserie, more useful to a tourist. In Noto there are no department stores or shopping malls. This is by choice of the Muinicipality, in order mantain the beauty of the environment. The lack of competition and the awareness on the part of shopkeepers, to work in a tourist city creates higher prices than those of the nearby towns, which have more stores and a wider choice of goods. Noto offers a selection of fashion boutiques , selling everything from smart dresses to stylish accessories which attract both tourists and customers from neighbouring towns. Among the most quoted clothing stores, you can name the following: the boutique «Sudano», the boutique «Di Pietro», the boutique «Costanzo» and «Mendelssohn».
