Beautiful and peaceful haven to rest in the midle of Taormina with views to the sea and to Etna. Easy access from town centre and superb trees/plants and follies under which to relax or sketch.

Even in off-season it was very calming to walk around the gardens. Its very accessible in the centre of Taormina and right by our hotel, Villa Paradiso. They're only small, but a lovely walk along the sea.

This garden is well established and has enough interest for a prolonged visit. there are plenty of benches and it is nice to eat a packed lunch here. There are rubbish bins provided. I found the planting of more interest than the strange Hollywood-jungle-type follies , some of them crumbling,where is Tarzan when you need him? Also, the view over the sea is magnificent. there is quite a bit of shade, which also helpful. I liked the gaden very much and went almost every day to see it and enjoy its tranquility.

The gardens were a surprise and delight - somewhere peaceful to escape from the crowds. A definite place to visit....
