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.

  • A beautiful garden laid out longways on the slopes of Taoramina. Slowly decaying structures of wood and tile and brick and stone are everywhere. The whole thing is the legacy of of a Brithish aristocrat - best to read about her in the Gardens. On a sunny day this place is enchanting. Views forever and of course Mt Etna
  • Beautiful and peaceful gardens, there are public toilets inside de garden but they're not very clean
  • This is a lovely spot to explore on a warm sunny day, it offers you a great place to go for a romantic stroll or find a cool and quite place to sit down and relax. It's something most people struggle to find but are happy with they do, I would suggest 60-90 minutes is a good amount of time required to see the gardens and enjoy the amazing view. The gardens are very well maintained that offers a perfect break from the chaos of the tourists hustle and bustle of the old town. It's certainly somewhere I would recommend you visiting if you have a chance.
  • Beautiful gardens overlooking the sea to the south of Taormina. Was a little rough around the edges but that added to the charm. They were restoring these old towers within the gardens which looked like something straight out of a fairy tale, with their stone, mud and wooden construction and their defyingly tall and sprawling design.
  • So beautiful! Grab a sandwich and enjoy the sight
