Lovely fountain in the middle of a sunny Square in Ortigia. We spent 2+ hours walking around this picturesque little town. The fountain was not the highlight of our trip, but it’s a pleasant stop along the way.

I would not have it on my must visit list, but it still is a beautiful fountain and also a convenient point to find your way in the city

Fun and interesting- spectacular sculptures around a rather bawdy myth! A "must-see" both in the daytime and also at night when its illuminated.

Absolutely beautiful and fascinating. We went back a few times and each time I saw something different. It is truly unique and straight out of a Greek myth. Wonderful to photograph!

While waiting for our hop on hop off bus, we walked around this fountain it is really lovely. We came back at night and it is lit beautifully.. Watch out for cars it is in the middle of a roundabout.
