Relatively small but uninteresting public garden. Redeeming feature is good views of mount Etna. Terrible parking in this area.

The gardens are a beautiful, shady place to escape the blazing sun in Taormina. They are quiet small so don't expect Hyde Park. The dilapidation of the unusual follies and towers is a civic disgrace for which Taormina should be ashamed.

Nice garden, refreshing shades, breathtaking views. There is not such a single thing that makes it special but it is lovely and worth a visit. As many other places in Taormina, walking in the surroundings you will find a lot of nice narrow streets.

This is a wonderful place to stop and take a few pictures - it's right on the edge of the town, at the top of Corso Umberto. It's rather small but still lovely, and so it's a really good place to take a few photos of the family with a stunning view of Taormina and the sea stretching out behind... More

Makes this your main target to get some fresh air and nice view, most pleasant stroll in the park with water fountains and many benches. On the way down there stop at the pastry shop on the right hand side to get the best canoli in Sicily!

Our family spent a nice hour here exploring the grounds. Yes, it is a bit unkept but it is quite extensive and after all, is not maintained by a fancy hotel! It is extremely lovely with lots to see even for our 7 and 9 year-olds. The original owner Ms. Trevelyan did such a nice job on planning her personal... More

This is a perfect place to take a moment and soak in the views of Taormina. There are several benches under trees for you to sit and enjoy a picnic lunch or just a quiet moment. There were not as many flowers as we expected to see- but many trees and foliage. This is a free attraction - with many... More

This place is great if you want to relax in the middle of the day. It has nice viewpoint on the whole beach at the bottom of the city and many benches and places where you can sit and think about how beautiful it is there.
