Public gardens in taormina

The villa is a real green lung, populated by lush vegetation of palm trees, cacti and a large quantity of flowers, that, in summer, make this place a delight for the eyes.

 

The villa was originally settled by Lady Florence Trevelyan, a Scottish noblewoman who left their country after having had an affair with the heir to the throne of England Edward VII. Arrived in Taormina in 1884 Lady Trevelyan married the mayor prof. Salvatore Cacciola.

The garden becomes the property of the town since 1922 and inside you can still admire the particular constructions made built by Lady Trevelyan ornamental purposes, calls victorian follies.

The gardens are a viable alternative to crowding of the central streets. Their paths are nestled among magnolias, hibiscus and bougainvillea bushes perfectly groomed.
