Nice place to have a walk after being in the noisy & crowded town. Beautiful views, lovely paths with plants & flowers. Strange construction at one corner.

Without entrance fees you can walk around the garden with fountains and narrow walkways that offer very nice views to the Taormina-Giardini coastline. A lot of benches for resting your feet. Buy something to drink to bring with you from the small store on the left hand side when approaching the garden's gate.

We stopped here during our visit to Taormina. We loved the beautiful gardens, peaceful surroundings and spectacular views. Bliss! We even ate our picnic here. Highly recommended.

Lovely views but the gardens themselves have gone to seed and, as a lover of gardens, I cannot in all honesty give it any more stars, 3 stars would be more appropriate but it was a welcome cool walk amongst a garden of faded glory, I would have loved to have seen it in its heyday.

Yes - something great that's free! We liked the gardens - with their views across the bay. Super for photos and also little quiet corner to sit and chat amongst the exotic plants. Worth a visit just 5 mins walk down from the centre - TIP: there are no refreshments available in the gardens so buy an ice cream from... More

Just a short walk from the main street this provided a quiet oasis to enjoy some stunning views over the bay and also towards Etna, giving soem great photo opportunities. Whether to have quite sandwich or seek some shade this can offer a relaxing time in the busy resort town.

Worth the walk down to see these gardens, especially if the kids need to run off steam. Beautiful structures inside and well cared for gardens. Free.

A lovely garden and a great place for a sit down and a picnic. The views of the bay and Etna are fantastic. On a practical note there are toilets as well! A good place to escape the hustle and bustle of the main town.
