A shady stop-off

Well kept and the shade was a welcome relief from the heat - views to the bay and Etna are very good

Really appreciate all the thought that went into creating this magical place. It's well worth a visit and wasn't teeming with tourists like the town and Greek theater are.

Amasing flowers, well done garden. Spectacular view over Giardini Naxos and mount Etna. I prefer to go there in the morning, when the sun is in front os Etna.

This garden is just beautiful, peaceful, and a place one wants to return to again and again. It provides a wonderful respite from the rigors of travel.

beautifull flowers I hadn't seen before, peace and quiet. Nice views on sea and Etna. War signs on trees.

This garden in the centre of toarmina a sectuary away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Street . Well worth an hour or two to stroll around or just have a seat and watch the people.

Beautifully planted but not much room for a long walk. Building ruins adds a historical touch not always seen in gardens. View of the sea amazing

These are lovely well shaded gardens with some stunning views. A lovely place to relax, read or people watch (popular place to eat sandwiches) away from the hustle and bustle of Taormina's main street, yet only a stones throw away.

The garden was initially a gift from Florence Trevelyan, an English women who fell in love with Taormina in the late 1800's. It's been added to over the years to become a lovely, shaded garden perched on the side of Taormina.
