A beautiful quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle with excellent views along the coast line. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the gardens or just take a slow stroll around. Well worth a visit.

According to our guidebook, these gardens were donated to Taormina by an English aristocrat, Florence Trevelyan, who had fallen in love with the town. Sadly, we could not see any mention of this in the explanatory texts in the park, and I wonder what she...More

We've found this place by accident but it was a great finding. We've enjoyed the views, great plants and trees and animals. Go there, if you need a break in the shade.

If you want to get away from the busy main street in Taormina the garden is a good alternative. Very nice views, some interesting buildings of an English lady. A good way to spend half an hour.

A natural retreat in the middle of the city with impressive threes, beautiful flowers, silent alleys and a great view over the sea.

Beautiful day and outstanding gardens to walk through and enjoy. They are a public garden so you can visit as often as you want to take in all the different vegetation and sights. Well worth a visit.

Free to enter gardens with a nice mix of trees, shrubs and flowers. Plenty of shade and seating area’s. Some good views of the coast. Various old buildings that looked like they were in the course of being repaired.
