We found these gardens accidentally and are glad we did! What a beautiful place to walk and unwind. The paths wander along terraces of flowers, topiaries, statues, and unique looking structures (not sure what they were originally used for, but most were under renovation). The...More

inside a lovely garden two parrots are in prison and are the saddest thing. FREE THE TAORMINA 2. A bird in a cage has all heaven in a rage.

I saw the signs for this beautiful park which takes you through the narrow streets of Taormina. On arrival I was knocked out by the gardens and the views. Numerous statues in the park but just kept going back to the views.

Took a nice leisurely stroll through the park, plenty of shade trees and benches to relax and read. Beautiful vantage points for some lovely pictures of the sea and surrounding bay.

Beautiful and peaceful gardens with some sculptures and buildings that look like something from a fantasy film. Also a war memorial with a field gun and two man open submarine. This is well worth a walk around and is right next to Hotel Villa Diodora.

This is a lovely garden away from the bustle of the Greco-Roman theatre & streets of Taormina. There were on.y a few people there when we visited. Good views too. The garden could do with being better taken care of though.

Worth a quick visit. Lovely to walk around, take in the views and it features a nice little architectural building which somehow reminded me of Mowgli and the Jungle Book :)

This wonderful park was next to our hotel and overlooks the Ionian Sea. It is beautifully landscaped and very peaceful and relaxing. It is a great place to unwind.

I agree with all other posts. It your mum can manage the walk to the gardens and back then I am sure she will really enjoy these lovely gardens. Plenty of shade, plenty of seats. Really hope you get to see them

not much, you can walk quite fast through, in 15 - 20minutes, or relax even for hours inside.
