Beautiful garden and views. Only complaint is that some of the hidden parts are full of litter- but that's on the visitors... Being off season, it was like a sanctuary, a quiet place to relax.

This is a beautiful park, peaceful and shady, with amazing views of the sea to Naxos. The buildings in the park are also very unique, as is the small war memorial. Definitely worth a visit

Well worth a visit here, for a wander around, with some excellent views, some interesting buildings and ponds and flowers. A very peaceful place and well worth the visit.

Were it not for the view this would be a dull garden. But it’s quiet and shaded and offers a respite from the tourists thronging the rest of the town. It’s worth seeing but not worth going out of your way to see.

Visited here this afternoon with my girlfriend. Very pretty garden with stunning views and great photo opportunities. Designed by an English woman who later married an Italian. A hidden gem well worth a visit.

The public gardens in Taormina are definately worth a visit. It is a well kept park with stunning views over the eastern coastline of Sicily.

I agree with all other posts. It your mum can manage the walk to the gardens and back then I am sure she will really enjoy these lovely gardens. Plenty of shade, plenty of seats. Really hope you get to see them

not much, you can walk quite fast through, in 15 - 20minutes, or relax even for hours inside.
