Loved the huge variety of shops from handmade shoes to jewellery, and gelato. The amphitheater is incredible and we even enjoyed lunch at the Cafe on site overlooking the sea. We caught the train from Messina which goes every 30 min approx and then a 20 euro taxi to the town which is high up. it only takes 20 min to walk back down. Easy walking through and round the town. You can also take the gondol down to the beach if you don't want to walk.

Excellent gardens, in the shade which was welcome on such a hot day. They are well designed and interesting with historical information boards. I would recommend these gardens to anyone looking for some
Peace and quiet away from the bustle of the Main Street or the heat of the beach. Lovely

This is the place to visit if you are hot and tired. The gardens are subtropical and free to entry with plenty of shade and benches. The foliage is unusual and well tended with large trees and bushes. You can amble around on paved paths with views of the extensive coastline. Supposedly you can enter from a track near the ancient theatre but we found it was padlocked. The gardens are also a short walk from the main shopping street.

We did this after the Greek theatre as they are not far apart and this is completely free. Wonderful planting, follies and stunning views. Plenty of seats if you want to take a picnic. Quite a few steps down to it initially but such a lovely experience. You can normally walk down from the theatre but the path was closed. Really worth a visit

This location was very pleasant. Plenty of shade provided a nice break from the intense sunshine and heat of mid-day in July. VIews of the beaches, sea, and buildings below were stupendous. The Asian buildings, statues, and plant variety in the were interesting to see. I thoroughly enjoyed strolling along the pathways here.

The Villa Comunale is a lovely little park nicely situated in Taormina. The views from the park are absolutely beautiful and you could easily spend time leisurely eating a gelato soaking up the views.

The park itself is lovely and peaceful, and a welcome break from the crows of Taormina.

A beautiful setting for our engagement and its now holds wonderful memories for us.

This was a very pretty park where you could spend a couple of hours walking around while getting away from the crowds. There is some history, nice gardens and stunning views of the Ionian Sea. I would highly recommend a visit. Take your time, enjoy the peacefulness and snap some beautiful photos.

I remembered this beautiful garden back in 2002 and dug out some old photos of the old garden towers before I went. It's even more wonderful than I recall, peaceful, nobody around, hot, loads of fantastic tropical plants and trees and amazing architecture. You could sit for a few hours and forget the world here. It closes at 9pm but you have to stand at the edge and take in the views.. it's fantastic.. and free.

This is an incredibly beautiful park that was donated by Florence Trevelyan to the city. The pathways, plants, trees and views are stunning. You will even find wonderful playground equipment, exercise equipment, and gazebos. It is like a fairy tale place! It is all beautifully cared for by the city. It is definitely worth a visit and a wonderful place to relax.

This is a great way to spend 45 minutes to an hour. Beautiful flowers, sculptures, fountains, and buildings. Many of the buildings have an Asian look/feel.

There is one section that is a memorial to the victims of war.

Find a quite bench and enjoy the shade on a hot day.
