Enter through the side gate which is next to villa Paradisimo for the visually stunning covered walkway. The garden contains a few wonderful folies which are very atmospheric. Did I mention the view?? Monty Don would love this tranquil and well tended garden. Beautiful.

We loved this little oasis after we had wandered through the Greek Amphitheater, the gardens are well maintained with interesting sculptures which not only amused us but young children. A very nice quite place to relax minutes from the bustle of the main street.

We saw the gardens on our city map and had remembered its high rating on tripadvisor. It's well signposted in the town, so took a short pleasant stroll to it through the bustling streets. Even in the height of summer, the gardens were not overcrowded, and we enjoyed a peaceful amble through the gardens, looking at interesting art, foliage, structures... More

Quirky and a cool shady spot to have a break from the heat. Follies, interesting plants and bird aviarys.

Made a point of wandering through every night. The gardens are lovely and there are spectacular views. I loved the parrot that says Caio! Cool on a hot day or evening and with an interesting story behind them that is told on information boards.

The garden is beautiful, lots of history and amazing views of Taormina. There are cannons and statues, beautiful flowers and it is a nice place to take a break while in Taormina.

as per the boboli gardens in Florence these gardens (although much smaller) were very pretty and with great views but somehow the Italians seem to leave their beautiful song parks to fall into neglect. Great shame

It was just lovely to walk through these gardens. It had a very hushed atmosphere, with beautiful trees, plants and flowers. On a hot summer day, there were welcome spots of deep shade. I enjoyed taking photos and listening to the quiet.
