Beautiful, peaceful place to hang out over lunch with a sandwich or walk through after dinner. Absolutely nothing to dislike.

A lovely park to walk any time of day or evening. Very shady and cool which we appreciated. We loved the patterns in the pathways and the plants.

This was a real bonus to the trip. Free entry and just fantastic. Apparently during the seige of Sicily during WWII, the Scots forces were billeted there. Despite their presence (and I am a Scot) the party seems to have been cleared and the gardens are just lovely. Amazing follies and views, beautifully kept.

The gardens are in a very good state and overall the place had lots of spots where you can just sit down and unwind. The manned torpedo was an interesting sight.

Quite a surprise to find these gardens hidden away in Taormina. Loved the bronze sculpture 'Angels of our time' it really made our day.

Don't miss this magnificently sculptured and pruned garden in the outpost of the city of Taormina . It's hot great views of mount Edna and the sea and it's FREE!
