This is a very nice park on the main shopping street of Etnea. Nice spot on a sunny day to sit and relax.

The Bellini Gardens are situated in the hear of the city. Few minutes away from the center which one could easily walk. Fancy a photo with the icon watch in the entrance of the garden.

Tired of crazy Catania traffic and ever honking cars? Grab a snack or a drink at a nearby kiosk and find a cozy bench in Giardino Bellini and enjoy some time of (relative) silence....
