Lovely gardens just down from the amphitheatre that are free to enter. The gardens are very interesting with many eccentric follies....
The story boards give a good understanding of the lady who laid out the formal gardens and the follies. Stunning views.
Well worth visiting. Recommended.

This park is below the ancient theater as you walk from the public pay parking area. It has many interesting structures and some sculptures. There are many shaded areas with walkways. There are various levels with stairs and/or ramps with views of the sea and coastline. Beautiful little park.

Walking down from the Ancient Theatre on the 'Goethe's Path' I came upon the Public Gardens, named after a politician and minister of noble Sicilian origin. But in fact it is the creation of an eccentric English lady, Florence Trevelyan, who had settled here in the late 19th century and who married the local mayor. There is a bust of her in the park.

There are a lot of trees, typical of the Mediterranean like cypresses, pines, olive trees, but also several of tropical origin. What strikes one most though are the 'Victorian Follies', bizarre constructions of no purpose, in different styles and with any kind of material possible.

One will also find a pond with goldfish, a monument to soldiers of WW I, a torpedo of an Italian battleship, a children's playground. Great are the views in a southerly direction towards the coast. The 'Giardino Pubblico' is open daily from 8am till sunset.

We didn’t go looking for these gardens, we just sort of stumbled across them. What a find! They are quite extensive and incredibly well designed. It is an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Taormina centre. Great place for photographs, with the bay in the background. Lots of shade if the sun becomes too hot.

We were wandering around Taormina exploring the town when we came across this beautiful park. It's is rather spacious and it has got lots of big fanciful trees that give you shelter from the boiling sun. It was very relaxing to take a long walk there. The foot paths are easy to stroll along and there is one that goes along the very edge of a steep rock with amazing bird's eye view over the sea. It’s worth coming here indeed.

Pretty park with wonderful sea views and lots of interesting features (a peek of Etna, fragrant roses, magnificent cypress, birdhouses, WW1 and WW2 artifacts).
The plant material is lovely, but what makes this spot special is the intriguing architecture, the peaceful atmosphere and it’s FREE.

Was recommended here by our Airbnb host. Just walked down the hill after visiting the Greek theatre. Excellent place to stroll and get away from the busy tourist center of Taormina.
