Very peaceful and peaceful park with a magnificent view to the Ionian Sea and mount Etna, on clear days you can see as far as Catania
Park is free and open daily from 9 Am to sunset
The park located next to Hotel Villa Paradiso and only 5 minutes walk to city center and the Greek Theatre
The park has a very nice and well kept garden and incredibly quiet and many interesting sculptures and a memorial commemorates the residents of Taormina who died in the First and Second World War.

Park have an interesting history and there are many artifacts in the park that tell it’s story. The park was originally the residence of a Scottish Lady Florence Trevelyan and remnants of her house can still be found in the gardens (Villa de Comnule)

This park is below the ancient theater as you walk from the public pay parking area. It has many interesting structures and some sculptures. There are many shaded areas with walkways. There are various levels with stairs and/or ramps with views of the sea and coastline. Beautiful little park.

A nice break away from the busy Taormina town and streets. Although the park can be busy too the plants,flowers, bushes and trees create an oasis of calm. Lots of seating and of course more stunning views of the coastline and Etna. Not a massive park but numerous paths and possible to walk a route to see it all. Also part of the park are WWII memorials and also a mini sub plus there is a series of elaborate wooden and stone buildings that neither look old or new and are beautiful to see. Shame you can’t go in one or two of the high ones but they add to the park experience. Easy to get to from the many winding streets that you can follow from the centre.

Being a garden lover, I appreciated the visit very much. But given the reputation and rop-10 must-sees in Taormina I admit that I was slightly disappointed.

The gardens are beautiful, true, and it was a welcome break from the bustle of main street Taormina. However, it was also a little underwhelming considering the hype.

We were wandering around Taormina exploring the town when we came across this beautiful park. It's is rather spacious and it has got lots of big fanciful trees that give you shelter from the boiling sun. It was very relaxing to take a long walk there. The foot paths are easy to stroll along and there is one that goes along the very edge of a steep rock with amazing bird's eye view over the sea. It’s worth coming here indeed.

Walking down from the Ancient Theatre on the 'Goethe's Path' I came upon the Public Gardens, named after a politician and minister of noble Sicilian origin. But in fact it is the creation of an eccentric English lady, Florence Trevelyan, who had settled here in the late 19th century and who married the local mayor. There is a bust of her in the park.

There are a lot of trees, typical of the Mediterranean like cypresses, pines, olive trees, but also several of tropical origin. What strikes one most though are the 'Victorian Follies', bizarre constructions of no purpose, in different styles and with any kind of material possible.

One will also find a pond with goldfish, a monument to soldiers of WW I, a torpedo of an Italian battleship, a children's playground. Great are the views in a southerly direction towards the coast. The 'Giardino Pubblico' is open daily from 8am till sunset.

Was recommended here by our Airbnb host. Just walked down the hill after visiting the Greek theatre. Excellent place to stroll and get away from the busy tourist center of Taormina.

Wonderfully frivolous park laid out by an Englishwoman. Trees that will shade, structures to marvel at and entertain you, and even parrots. Super views along the coast.
