Villa Comunale, Taormina

4.6
#2 of 8 in Parks in Taormina
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.

  • Lush Nice park with nice views of the Mediterranean Sea and at clear weather even Etna visible. The park has many different places and corners with interesting finds. Among other things, two-man submarine, play park, birds in cage (!) and old decrepit buildings that evoke the imagination of what they may have meant. Unfortunately some information in a language other than Italian that could highlight the questions a visitor may have. Worth a visit, clearly!

  • Beautiful and peaceful place in Taormina. It has a picturesque view of the sea and city below. Landscapes gardens and ornamental constructions made built by Lady Trevelyan.  more »
  • Shady park with stunning views of Etna and harbour. A sea of flowers, exotic birds, a fountain with fish. Lots of benches, there's a playground. It's perfect for inspection at the hottest hours of the day. A monument to Nicholas II was found here with surprise.

  • A lovely space to relax in. It's very tranquil. There are many beautiful trees, plants and structures(bird houses). There are wild birds and domesticated birds here which were all lovely and chatty. Would recommend to anyone, especially those who wish to escape the hustle and bustle of Taormina
  • Lovely cool oasis of calm in virtually the old centre of Taormina. Nice place to relax and take refuge from the heat of the day. If you can sample the delicious Italian ice cream at the same time. Wonderful!
  • Its a very pretty and Nice looking location. The view is just gorgeous and absolutely stunning. Park is Nice and preserved. Easy to get to with public transportation. A must see in Taormina.
  • Fantastic landarks, with an impressive nature surrounding an ancient Roman monument. Ideal for visitors and tourists who love nature and art. Wide and attractive.
  • Well worth a visit here. Located close to the main shopping area of Taormina, it provides a tranquil and restful location to just sit and relax on the many benches scattered throughout this park. There are also some public toilets available here. There are some stunning views of the coast to be had so take your camera. If you've become tired of eating in the restaurants, then this is a good place to eat a picnic.
