Reviewed April 15, 2013

Mother nature at it's best. After a long walk around the town we stopped there for some fresh air..A very quiet and relaxing garden not worth missing :)

“Gorgeous gardens overlooking the sea”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

These gardens are really beautiful, they are very calm and full of nice little alleys and scented flowers. The views on the bay are stunning, and there are many benches with fab views, in the sun or in the shade - ideal spot for a picnic, to read a good book in the sun, or simply to relax.
Note that they close at 6.00pm, though.

“nice but don't hold your breath”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The gardens are a useful accessory , antidote to the commercialism of Taormina, and have good coastal views, but our visit in early April indicated an ambience of casual neglect and a general need to smarten up some areas, including the garden architecture.

“Nice break from tourists”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely, historic garden in the center of bustling Taormina. Many of the overviews offer unparalleled views of the bay and the city spreading out below. It might be helpful to take along a plant identification book as there are very few tags or signs.
