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.

  • Walk inside this garden doesn't even seem to be in Europe but in the tropics. Tropical plants and flowers of all kinds even in December!! Even a Pagoda (maybe this careless) is just a backdrop to such splendour.

  • Quite a large property. Admission free. Very interesting vegetation and architecture. Beautiful views. This place is a great stepping stone when round is unbearable heat.
