Giardini della Villa Comunale, Taormina

(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.

  • Finding myself in Taormina and under recommendations on the internet I went to the gardens of the villa comunale who belonged at one time to an English noblewoman. The grounds are very nice and well kept and offer stunning views of the beach and isola bella. The only flaw is the absence of children's games.
