However this didn't bother most of the younger riders.
|At the top of the hill we met the rest of the group to explore Noto Antica.|
Noto Antica was an ancient city that was destroyed by the terrible earthquake of 1693. It is enclosed between two great ravines which made the city easy to defend. Its streets were once crowded with people and are now surrounded by vegetation.
|Doorways are all that remain of once sturdy homes.|
|Peggy who rode up the hill with us got back on her bike for the trip to Agriturismo Agri Milo.|
|It is a teaching farm of 22 Hectares.|
At the farm we saw stone walls and flowers galore. Owned by 3 brothers who also have a restaurant
where they prepare local specialties from their home grown vegetables.
When we were there several classes of school children were taking turns riding in the donkey cart, while others were making kites (which probably wouldn't fly)!
This is only a part of the delicious lunch that we were served while we were there. We were well fortified for our DOWNHILL ride to our next hotel.
interesting objects of various kinds and had comfortable places to sit.
But best of all it led to the pool, outside bar and a cabana!!
