Taormina Public Garden, Sicily

Back in 2008 my wife and I spent a wonderful week in Taormina, Sicily.  One of the highlights was our daily visit to the Public Gardens (Giardino Pubblico), a shady retreat from the intense heat of the Italian summer.

The gardens were awash with Bougainvillea, which provided an intense swathe of colour to the sunbaked surroundings.

  1. This reminded me of my first visit to Sicily. It was late June and I got heat stroke, my memory of the gardens was sitting shivering in temperatures of 38° C, and yes, I remember the COLOUR! Christina
