Gardens left to the town by an eccentric English lady. Views marvellous. Full of unusual follies. Many of the trees are dedicated to local war dead. A good place to relax when it is hot.

This is a very pretty garden which has a little bit of everything in it. There are some quirky buildings that were built in the last century, a mini submarine from WWII, and some spectacular views

Blissfully peaceful with plenty of space - we had to look hard to find another person. Plenty of seats and interesting planting. Met a local who told us that the garden used to be kept so beautifully but was now beginning to crumble - no money available these days it seems. nevertheless it's a wonderful place to spend time if...

These lovely gardens are a hidden treasure which we really appreciated after a busy morning exploring Taormina. Entrance is free and this is clearly a popular place with locals and visitors alike, yet it never seemed crowded.

Spent two wonderful chilled out afternoons out here. Perfect place to cool down on a hot day. The views are lovely and there are many interesting parts of the gardens to stroll through.

The views of Giardini Naxos below were breathtaking. The garden is very well laid out, and offers an abundance of beautiful plants and flowers.
