Went here in January so not much in bloom. Still green in places. Could skip it but it is near an incredible viewpoint, if there is no fog. Would allow 10 minutes here, even if in bloom. Free.

adequate gardens to take in the sights while in Erice. Very historic place and many a photo opportunity of the amazing views. It is a nice starting point to just sit and take in the views before strolling around the town.

As this is on the higher parts of the city it is a great starting point. There is enough shade (which was needed today). Some benches perfect to absorb the great views and start your way down.

A great view over the typical Sicilian landscape: the see, the coast and the countryside! It is completely free and not very crowded: entirely to enjoy!

I'm not that type of person who enjoys going inside of churches, castles and all those places. Erice can offer those, however if one comes just to relax and see the area, the Giardini are certainly the hot spot of Erice. Just walk around and...More

It's definitely touristic, but my oh my what an amazing view. Could sit there for hours just looking over the magnificent vista on a clear and sunny day.
