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.

Beautiful, and tranquil, Mediterranean garden just off the heart of this swish (and sometimes 'bling') up market resort town.

This is a beautiful garden, full of quirky buildings, glorious plants and spectacular views. It is a quiet place to escape to and just sit. There is no entrance fee and you can walk and sit for hours if that is what you want. Read the history of this garden before you visit, it is really interesting.

Lovely area to stroll around, just a little stroll away from the shops, seating and toilets available. Mainly a Japanese theme in the garden buildings.

Wow, the weather here is so hot, but these gardens are so green. its very pretty and larger then you can imagine. The view from here is amazing, you can see the clear blue water, the coast, the town, Etna, all of it. And I'm still surprised it was all free.

This is a wonderful little community garden, tucked away in the corner of town with a wonderful view of the coast. There are several small wooden houses that look more like forts, a small children's play area, and plenty of benches and walkways. It provided us with a very scenic and relaxing break from touring the town.

Lovely quiet location, well worth a visit away from the Wealthy crowd. stroll down off the main Shopping Street and take half an hour out to walk round.
