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.

  • 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!
