Nice place to have a fresh break between visits. It has amazing view on the bay and the Etna. It also has some excentric buildings of all different sorts, original!

What a beautiful and unusual garden, with quirky buildings, colourful exotic birds and stunning plants and shrubs. It's an oasis of peace and a wonderful place to sit and unwind.

Beautiful coastal views, exotic plants, fanciful buildings and follies, interesting history, shady and cool places to sit, fountains and wonderful patterned paving all combine to make these gardens a must in the busy tourist itinerary of Taormina. Don’t miss them!

Pleasant gardens to walk around, take in the views and relax. Convenient shady spots with seats . Public toilets a plus.

A beautiful quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle with excellent views along the coast line. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the gardens or just take a slow stroll around. Well worth a visit.

We've found this place by accident but it was a great finding. We've enjoyed the views, great plants and trees and animals. Go there, if you need a break in the shade.
