While visiting the Valley of Temples, a visit to the Kolymbetra Botanical Gardens was recommended.
I really don't believe it is worth a separate admission....it is basically full of citrus trees and lots of mosquitos and small annoying gnats. I'd pass.
Entering in this garden is like arriving in Eden. ...a perfume of oranges and jasmine all around....The gardens are very beautiful and passing through it you can see the temple of Vulcano . You need to buy z separate ticket, that costs 6 euro.
Il Giardino della Kolymbetra - wheelchair accessible? (1 Reply)
Does anyone know if the paths in Il Giardino della Kolymbetra are wheelchair accessible? I have a strong motorized wheelchair, so I don't necessarily need a paved path - just not paths with steps or made of very loose terrain that my chair will get stuck in. Thanks, Bruce

Welcome to Sicily bhomis! Unfortunately Il Giardino della Kolymbetra isn’t wheelchair accessible – There are steps from the start, and although a few paths may be acceptable, overall you would not be able to maneuver a wheelchair. Here are my photos - tripadvisor.com/…25470004 Vagabonda
