  • A place full of love for plants and a haven of peace and greenery in the heart of the city. We enjoyed several species of cactus (some very curious-looking; not seen in other gardens visited) and some types of Palm trees. During the month of March the park opened at 17, but I think that soon will pass to the summer schedule. Entry is free. The guardian is a person likeable and full of good advice on things to do in Catania, clearly passionate about her job and of all things that offers its wonderful city.

  • I hadn't been in a botanical garden this is the first from me, I have to say that every plant species is set to perfection, a round of applause at the University who runs this heaven on Earth, you have created a good environment indeed many beautiful natural environments with plants that you see are treated with love.

  • 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!
  • Edited and easily accessible. If he had a prolonged opening a couple of hours would deserve one more star.
