The garden is free and open to the public. It has a memorial to the dead of Taormina who fought in the World Wars combined with some very interesting and unique pagoda structures. It's a nice place to relax and beat the sun. The view from here is amazing, you can see the clear blue water, the coast, the town,... More

Quiet re tourists and an oasis with great views of the bay. The walk to it if you use the route down the stepped alley is a joy. NB the language centre half way down with it's own garden and cafe.

Beautiful, tranquil garden away from the crowded streets of Taormina. Not huge, but also not crowded and has a couple of interesting buildings of character and even a midget submarine. The view is wonderful. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Sicily.

This is a real gem with wonderful shaded paths and panoramic viewing points. It's history is interesting and it has been well maintained. Best of all it's free! We had a pre-opera stroll there in the early evening which was delightful. It is used by visitors and locals alike.

Beautiful garden in a great location, with more information than other places in Taormina. It's a romantic place but also very nice for families with children,. Just take care because some spots are a little dangerous for little kids unsupervised
