This was a nice break from the hectic Palermo of markets, busy streets, impossible traffic, amazing sites, etc. The freshness of the operation

The gardens are filled with unexpected delights. The location is central. There are many architectural elements which give it a typically baroque Sicilian flavour. You could easily spend half a day wandering around as I did. A must for anyone interested in gardens, plants and quiet places.

The botanical gardens are huge and have a an amazing variety of tropical plants. We spent a very enjoyable hour and more wandering about this quiet and peaceful corner of the city, with its fragrant smells (citrus fruits in winter), and bird life.

This was a nice surprise to enter. The gardens and statues are lush and beautiful and the air is filled with floral scents, the sounds of birds and butterflies. Follow the paths on the map or make up your own, it doesn't take long to go through. It is a lovely respite from the hustle and noise of the Palermo streets and waterfront.

I spent a whole afternoon in this magical place at the beginning of November, almost alone! I do not want to waste many words on the description as it is something you have to see and feel yourself! An oasis of tranquility and architectural beauty in perfect harmony with an amazing selection of plants from all over the world. Palermo! I'm in love with you!
