    It was a short walk from San Pietro, zigzagging up stairs and strolling through terrace gardens. questa frase è tratta da un articolo di giornale di tema artistico-turistico che descrive una città siciliana. Io ho provato a tradurre "terrace gardens" con giardini pensili, ma non ne sono pienamente convinta. Qualcuno mi può aiutare?

    Ciao eclipse85 :)
    When I think of "terrace gardens" I don't think of pots on condo balconies, or "giardini pensili" (which I'd translate "hanging gardens"). I think of terraced landscaping, such as the terrace gardens in Gubbio (or in the CinqueTerre), where flat garden areas are created by low stone walls, allowing one to create a series of gardens on a slope. But maybe I'm getting mixed up with "terraced gardens."

    Which Sicilian city/town are we talking about? Would you be able to find a photograph?
