Taormina. Sicily. Italy. View of the small monuments or bust of Florence Trevelyan Cacciola, the creator of the giardini di Valla Comunale, the public gardens of Taormina. She created the gardens in 1899, 10 years after hurriedly leaving Britain after having an affair with the future King Edward VII. The gardens are a green oasis of Mediterranean and exotic plants and include fountains and eclectic follies such as the ornamental pavilions known as the beehives which consist of arches and arcades. The glitzy and ultra-charming medieval town of Taormina is located 200 metres high above sea level on a spur of Mount Taurus on the East coast of Sicily in the province of Messina.
