this is a very nice park to walk in, there are many things to see (fountain, terrace). the nice thing is that they use plants to display the current date. they change the plants every day to reflect the current date. very interesting.

Larger than we were expecting and situated at the top of the main and generally busy shopping street. Often something going on to view.

Free entry. The perfect place to wander on a hot day ... very well maintained park with walkways lined with oleanders and peppercorn trees - and others - a playground for the kids and plenty of seats to rest in the shade and contemplate.

The giardini Bellini is a little park not far from the centre of Catania. Beautiful place with many trees and fountain. The date of the day is written with plants and changes every day.

Unless you are a swift walker it would be a long walk from the cruise ship terminal. I would take a local bus or a taxi. Yes, it is only a short walk from the Duomo. If you only have a short time in Catania then I would... More
