We went there without having an appointment nd appreciated the warm and friendly atmosphere! We were shown the herbs, fruits etc. and learned a lot! The products are great and the view is perfect. Next time we will make an appointment to be able to attend the fruit tour or cooking show. Mille grazie!!!

For 15€/person you will have a guided tour of the different grown aromatics plants. A light meal is included. You're not allowed to walk around freely. Quite friendly staff. The tour might seem long for young children, although they are invited to touch and smell various aromatics plants.

We arrived and Enrico took us on a tour of the farm. He is full of knowledge about his plants, enthusiasm for his farm and what he does. It is a beautiful place, with well tended plants, all aromatics and herbs. There is a tall greenhouse that houses papaya, mango and banana trees as well, all loaded with fruit. Enrico's... More

A great morning with the entertaining Enrico Russino in his beautiful aromatic gardens, filled with wonderful plants and herbs. A real treat to see Sicily's plant range tended so beautifully and enthusiastically. Good luck with your future projects Enrico!

He was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and helpful. We purchased a few items on our way out and he seemed grateful that we would. highly recommend an hour or so... More

We were very lucky to be shown around this amazing market garden dedicated to herbs and exotic plants with just one other couple, allowing us plenty of time to ask questions of the owner about the business and his vision. Enrico is funny and passionate and a visit to his little piece of Sicily an absolute highlight of our trip.... More

In this area of semitropical climate are growing large collections of officinal herbs, leave-scented pelargonium and drought resistant plants. The owner’s enthusiasm and knowledge drive the visitor trough a journey into space and time, from the native and exotic plants to the ornamental and edible plant brought to Sicily from West -Indies by the colonial spanish traders. Before we leaved... More

Friends of ours from Catania knew the owner and booked a private tour of the herb garden. Not only was it educational, but inspiring to hear his family story, Enrico, but his knowledge and enthusiasm to bring more to his country and business. It's a wonderful place and everyone should go if you are in the area!
