The gardens in taormina are a beautiful tranquil place to sit away from the crowded main streets. The view is amazing and you can buy a sandwich from the little deli across the road and sit and eat surrounded by the lovely vegetation and singing birds. Its also a nice walk in the evening on the way to town.

These gardens are a great way to spend an hour or so when in Taormina. The views are spectacular and the gardens are interesting to wander around also a great place to take photo's. Go in the morning or late afternoon as gets quite warm there.

Beautiful, unusual gardens. The views are lovely and it is worth the walk to see it and to read about how it came about. It is away from the tourist stores of the main street in Taormina. There are a few restaurants across the street, open even on a Sunday.

Liked the views and interesting bird houses. Gardens are amazing but smaller than I thought. It's a quick 10 to 20 minute stop.

Had a lovely walk around the gardens. Felt like they could be invested in a little more, but maybe cause we visited in December and it's "out of season"' maybe in summer, more is our into it, but that aside still a very beautiful place to go and see and walk or sit.
