4.6/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
Giardini della Villa Comunale is one of the main sites in a town that has been a popular tourist destination since the 19th century. A haven of tranquility far from the maelstrom of boisterous tourists, the park offers not only panoramic views of the city and the curving coastline, but also unbeatable vistas of Mount Etna. The park is crisscrossed by paved pathways, which are shaded by centenarian trees and lined with lush flower beds. Mimosa and orange trees sway gently over lifelike sculptures, which recline on stone benches and seem to enjoy the park’s views just as much as the real visitors do. Designed in the style of a typical English garden, the park was created in the 19th century by Lady Florence Trevelyan, an English noblewoman who married a local military commander.

  • Beautiful garden where you can relax and enjoy a wonderful panorama! Located in the central area of Taormina ... worth it, to admire the natural beauty and ancient pagodas

  • I was expecting gardens. It really should be named a park that has great views and is very relaxing. It is not large and easy to walk through. 
  • Wonderful garden which had memorials from the First and Second World Wars including a two man submarine from World War 2.
