  • Interesting garden born in the years ' 50 and well located in the central area of the city. It can enjoy a good collection of both local and exotic plants from various parts of the globe. Especially the Dracena Drago and Euforbia Brachiata. Visit interesting.

  • We wanted to visit the garden considering the good reviews but alas on arrival was closed. No advice but only a sign but indicated the opening days and hours at which time (11.00 am) and that day (Monday) should have been opened. But evidently so that wasn't. What a disappointment!

  • A nice quiet place. Worth to visit. You can sit in the shade of Palm trees. There are large cacti.

  • Great botanical garden in the city center, particularly the collection of succulent plants is impressive. Great place to hang out for a few hours and relax.
  • Beautiful 18th century botanical garden worth a visit
  • Nice place to visit. Worth visiting!!!
  • Beautiful and tranquil gardens just off the hustle and Bustle of via Etna. The collection of cacti is fantastic and there is lots of information in English.
  • Wonderful place in Catania, Very well organized, We spent one hour there, walking and observing the Botanic Garden, I definitely recommend this place!
