Tired of crazy Catania traffic and ever honking cars? Grab a snack or a drink at a nearby kiosk and find a cozy bench in Giardino Bellini and enjoy some time of (relative) silence....

If you need a beautiful, quiet place to take a break for the hustle of this busy city, be sure to visit the Bellini Gardens. Sculptured trees, statuary and lovely views.

This garden gives you very calm and peaceful time while in Catania. Quite big with different kind of plants and trees, it seems like botanical garden as well.
