A good way to find some peace and quiet in Catania :) A large range of trees and plants are planted and the garden is very quiet, despite being on Via Etnea. You can easily bring a picnic lunch and eat it on a bench to relax and rest your feet! Entrance is free of charge.
A fantasmagorical place of Catania, despite everything, the Botanic Garden is very well organized! A nice path for observing cactus, a path for observing other plants, Very very nice.
Even tough the gardens are not very large, there is a lot to see. We had a very relaxed walk as there are not many visitors and a lot of trees create shadows to cool down in hot weather.

But with an 8 year old and 6 year old, we couldn't stay cooped up in our tiny rental apartment, so we headed out to the botanical gardens after breakfast. It was the perfect way to... 更多
