Villa Giulia is a public garden in Palermo, dated 1778.
It has a geometric shape and it is meant to be a relaxing place, with long shaped green corridors, flowers, tall palms and a large central area with “exedras”.
There are also many allegoric statues, representing the City of Palermo and other concepts such as “Plenty”, “Glory”, “Heresy” and other.
Villa Giulia is probably outside the standard touristic routes in Palermo, but it is definitely worth a visit, especially during the hot summer days.
Not to mention that it is close to the seaside, and to a couple of sensational “gelaterie”.
