The gardens are an oasis of calm in the city, a great place to cool off for a moment and enjoy some amazing views of the coast away from the crowds, amid vibrant flowers and many varieties of plants. Nowadays, I tend to decide how much I like a place based on how realistically I can imagine it being the... More

Beautiful, a good place to rest in the shade. Well presented and unusual with early 20th Century follies and exotic plants. There is also a statue at the entrance to the gardens if a couple of modern day Angels complete with briefcase and handbag.

Just an oasis of calm after the hot dusty streets and the noise and bustle of the centre. Designed by Lady Trevelyan who was banished from Court by Queen... More

We went visited several times in the heat of the day for a bit of shade and a sit down. Lovely views and well cared for gardens. The old building are a bit neglected and the public toilets are truly awful. As a major tourist centre why cannot decent toilets be provided? Do not let this put you off though... More

Peaceful place in the city flooded with tourists. Great views through the Jacaranda trees to the sea below. Absolutely worth visiting.

A wonderful and (rarely for Taormina) free place to spend some time. Very tranquil gardens with amazing views. Well worth a visit.

Quiet, cool, stunning views of sea and Mt. Etna. Extensive pathways and fountains. Nice stop on way to Greek Amphitheater.
