“How to get there”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

If you like gardens you need to go. Really different, beautiful with a lot of lemon, orange and others citrus fruits. It is not easy to find, cost us more then one hour! But it is not difficult (when you know...). The entrance is in front of Demeter temple, if you leave you car in the temple parking is just around 500 meters to get there. The fee for entrance is 4 euros for adults, and the parking is 3 euros.

“another MUST in Agrigento”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

the gardens are hidden in the small valley with the stream in the middle
you hae to pay extra to get there, but it is worth the price
Orange and lemon orchards, almond and olive groves provide a unique experience of ancient life
Scent of flowers buzzes with bees, but they are very peaceful and concentrated on the job, so even me - a beephobe felt safe
you caqn pick your own fruits - lemons were an experience on their own
prepare for walking up and down on very narrow paths

“hidden gem”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

not much visited this garden is a true oasis and a perfect addition to the temples of Agrigento. Easter is the perfect time for a visit as the many orange and lemon trees are flowering and one is allowed to eat oranges at will too. Great views, peaceful, enchanting! Yes, one has to pay extra to visit it, but the FAI, equivalent to the National Trust in the UK is doing a fantastic job maintaining the place

Reviewed 12 March 2014

I was initially reluctant to go down the steps to the garden but iam glad that I did.a quiet, cool place to pick your own fruit at no cost. Free membership for british national trust members.
