4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The is a well developed little park on via Etnea in the shopping district, a welcome addition to Catania and vastly improved over the past few years.

“A nice touch of green in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

A lovely, restful place to sit and enjoy the surroundings, it was nice to see the park full of locals, eating lunch and reading and exercising. The entrance. Looking up to the fountain and gazebo, are very welcoming. Altogether a nice place to spend some time.

“Nothing Much To See”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Catania city itself is very built-in. And so, there's not much green to it. And this Park is a respite for mostly local people to come to, to sit on the bench engaging in people watching, pavements for people to do moderate exercise such as power jog or stroll; there's a playground for children, large field for certain sports to be played there. Apart from that, that's pretty much it for this place. Forget about it. I don't think it's meant to be a tourist attraction at all.

“A little oasis of green in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

It is well worth the walk up to this shady garden. The view of Mt. Etna from the bandstand is worth the walk alone. Don't miss it!

“Beautiful Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Giardino Bellini is well worth a visit after going to the busy main market in Piazza Alberto. It is very well laid out and a peaceful haven away from the busy streets of central Catania
