These gardens are a great way to spend an hour or so when in Taormina. The views are spectacular and the gardens are interesting to wander around also a great place to take photo's. Go in the morning or late afternoon as gets quite warm there.

Beautiful, unusual gardens. The views are lovely and it is worth the walk to see it and to read about how it came about. It is away from the tourist stores of the main street in Taormina. There are a few restaurants across the street, open even on a Sunday.

Liked the views and interesting bird houses. Gardens are amazing but smaller than I thought. It's a quick 10 to 20 minute stop.

Had a lovely walk around the gardens. Felt like they could be invested in a little more, but maybe cause we visited in December and it's "out of season"' maybe in summer, more is our into it, but that aside still a very beautiful place to go and see and walk or sit.

These gardens provide a wonderful break from the bustle of the busy Corso Umberto. There are quirky follies to explore, great views of the hillside, bay and Mount Etna in the distance. There is also an interesting war memorial in the gardens. It is a wonderful relaxing location to enjoy the splendorous geography of the region. Take a sandwich and... More

We stayed at Hotel Villa Belvedere which is right next to the gardens and we strolled through them each time we walked into the town and back. Even in November the gardens are beautiful with so much greenery, exotic flowers, quaint buildings, wonderful statuary and views to take your breath away. Every time we walked through we noticed something different.... More

It's very nice to have a walk here in the gardens, lokking at the beautiful view of the Etna and the sea.
