What travelers are saying
- As most say about this spot it is a place for quietness and relaxation. It’s shady and large enough to “lose” a lot of people in to keep that sense of peacefulness.
Safe too - the Carabinieri patrol the outer track by car.Written September 26, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A really lovely walk and some spectacular trees. Palermo gets a bit polluted and this is a welcome escape to breathe fresh air, from fruit trees to magnificent magnolia trees, bamboo and cacti. You can lose yourself here, sit and relax, listening to the birds, watching terrapins in the ponds or enjoying a cool drink in the bar, which has exceptionally comfortable sofas under canopy’s. We recommend a trip here.Written October 25, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- What an experience! Didn’t expect to find such a hidden gem in the heart of famous Valle dei Templi. The garden is so antique and has lots of exemplars of citrus plants and unique man made irrigation system. With the hot Sicilian sun it was such a pleasure to stay in the shade of the trees in the picturesque landscape. 10/10 recommend to visit!Written July 13, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I wasnt overall in love with Ragusa but my favourite part was this beautiful park. There's a large play area if you have little kids with you and tree lined paths and a fountain. A really nice place to sit. The day we were there it was a street theatre festival....Ibla Buskers....and there was a play for children which was brilliant. We didn't even have children with us but sat and watched it very entertained. Not sure how often they have events like that but even without the gardens are worth a visit.Written October 11, 2022
- I dont remember when we went there but I would like to write this comment! I and my boyfriend love to explore different places therefore we wanted to see this fascinating place (even from outside, it looks amazing)!
His favorite part is the greenhouse, we saw his favorite fish there, he likes recording water movements too, we really enjoyed our moment, if I can find some photos I will share! Enjoy too!💚🎉Written June 27, 2023
- The Balio gardens, adjacent to the Castle of Venus, were built in English style by Conte Pepoli in 1872. Being a public garden, access is free. They are beautifully maintained with lush vegetation and provide a quiet spot to relax in the shade after exploring Erice.. You can admire a breathtaking view of Trapani and the salt pans from the belvedere.Written October 14, 2022
- Pretty park, we had time to kill until our flight so we sat in the shade of the park. It had beautiful huge banyan trees and a pretty fountain.Written February 7, 2023
- Amazing visit. Alessio was the perfect guide which explained everything about the family and perfectly described all about the family.Written July 10, 2022
- We can still see that the gardens were left abandoned but they seem to have been brought back to life. They are quite well treated.
Anyway, the views over the bay and the Etna are amazing.

- Within the Parco Comunale there is a wonderful little museum, the Museo degli Antichi Mestieri. It is privately owned and is open Saturday and Sunday 9.30 to 12.30. It costs €2.50 and this includes a guided tour by the owner, a real enthusiast and collector. He doesn't speak a lot of English but that is not really a problem. He knows a bit and can communicate by gesture and his fascination for his collection. There are several rooms and each wall or corner has a theme. Some relate to old skills of the area with lots of equipment to see. Others relate to activities such as school, leisure, advertising etc.. There must be hundreds of toys and a lot of them work - they would do well on the Antiques Roadshow. Did you know that Fiat used to make fridges? This was definitely the highlight of our visit to Zafferana.Written July 17, 2015
- The garden is undergoing some kind of restoration works and only the balcony over the Adriatic is accessible. A few meters away from the Belvedere garden is the Belvedere Bar where one can enjoy a wonderful ice-cream or grantitaWritten September 4, 2015
- After visiting the Palatine Chapel, have a relaxing walk in the middle of the Royal Garden, where you can take a coffee while forgetting the noise of the city. Highly recommended!Written April 3, 2022
- Appointment needed. We went with a garden group.
About 2 hectares, the garden was created from part of a large lake drained about a century ago, to rid the area of mosquitos.
Primarily filled with succulents but with the usual Mediterranean large trees such as cedars and pines. There are some roses and jasmine climbing over low buildings.
The Borghese family planted and designed the garden and it feels lived in, with children’s toys scattered near the house.
At the end of September the temperature was still a balmy 30 Celsius but pleasant breezes made it enjoyable.
Highly recommended.Written September 29, 2019
