Giardino Bellini, Catania

Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
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.
