We only visited the park to find the bronze bust of a family member of a friend of mine who was considered an important person in Erice. The park itself is nothing special, but worth visiting to get a photo for my friend.

Fresh off the cable car we headed to the steps of the garden which is just wonderful. Very well maintained and offering shade and scents of flora to an amazing spectical of sights all around. A great way up to see the Castle of Venus.

Erice is a small hilltop village with beautiful vistas. We took the funicular for 9€ round trip. The ride up and down was enjoyable offering lovely scenery. The town itself doesn’t have much to offer. The castle can be skipped and many shopkeepers seem annoyed...More

If you don't feel like paying to enter the castle, you'll get the same view and lot less constricted areas to move around here in this beautiful cliffside garden.

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.
