Giardino Bellini, Catania

4.2
#2 of 11 in Parks in Catania
Garden Nature / Park
Climb the patterned cobblestone steps of the hillside Giardino Bellini, the oldest of four gardens on the way into Catania. Here you'll find ample flowerbeds, lush hedges landscaped into patterns, shaded boulevards, and benches and fountains inviting rest. It's impossible to forget the date here, thanks to the hillside clock and date display, spelled out in plants that change every day. The garden's intricate paths are a legacy of the 18th century, when popular interest in both reason and imagination led to a taste for beguiling mazes. From the very top of the hill you'll be able to see the sea and Mt. Etna rising out of the clouds.

  • A great Park to sit surrounded by greenery or stroll in the Centre. There are also sports fields.

  • Gay cruising in a beautiful and romantic park. There is even a calendar MADE OUT OF FLOWERS. Not even Google Calendar has that feature. Many sculptures lack their noses though. The guy on the bike was hot.
  • Nice park packed full of people, particularly over lunch time. A bit behind the main entrance the park is more calm, but also less interesting.
  • Past the initial pleasantness of being in a park it's quite sparse once you get into it. Then there's the juxtaposition of children's playgrounds and men hanging around, possibly just cruising but perhaps waiting for inattentive tourists, making it hard to relax.
  • Very nice view of the Etna! Clean and well taken care of! I've had a relaxing visit
  • Catania 's green Spot.. good for kids . running and a walk with the dog..
