The Gardens

Magical! A wonderful, restful, peaceful place to visit. A getaway from the maddening crowds with room to breath and relax. Fabulous.

Staying at local hotel we very often walked through the gardens with hot weather in July it was a lovely shaded area with spectacular views over the harbour and Mount Etna with admission free. Well worth a visit.

We visited here twice in our holiday and it had great views as well as lots of interesting buildings and statues to look at. It was very peaceful in the park and many of the benches were in the shade so was nice to sit and relax here in the heat of the day.

Found by chance and enjoyed immensely, lots of seating in the shade, attractive artefacts, parking outside if you can find any, and it's over a large area and free to enter.

The garden is nice and full of trees and other plants, and it has a beautiful view of the beach and the sea. It is not very large, but it's enough to find your own bench to sit on and relax and enjoy the green. Not cold enough for my taste, but nice nevertheless.

This has been definitely the thing I liked the most in Taormina. Very well maintained. The view of the bay is breathtaking, but what makes this garden unique are the buildings, full of columns, steps, etc. A must see!

A little bit of an oasis to sit down in on a hot day and take in a simply breathtaking view. It's a free attraction and its a peaceful spot to have a bite to eat in or to catch your breath.

Super relaxing gardens hidden away from the main tourist zone of Taormina. Very natural and yet with a touch of fantasy. Beautiful views from the lookouts and quiet spots to sit under the trees

The gardens are very nice. The story behind them sizzling. A very nice stroll in the shady gardens, and the view south to Giardinni Naxos is breath taking.

We haven't heard about this place in advance, we're just wandering along the small streets of Taormina and found this beautiful place. The view, the flowers, the whole garden is truly amazing. It's well kept but you can enter free of charge. This is very rare nowadays, I think.
