Taormina itself is well worth a visit as it's situation is startling. This fountain was nothing special and maybe the huge crowds milling around may have spoiled the experience.

The art is nice, but beyond being a sculpture it is supposed to be a working fountain, pretty sad to see it out of order.

Where as this was interesting, I felt that it not really being a fountain anymore was disappointing. It has all been closed off except for on small section. I did not find out why.

Pleasant enough little fountain in a small square by the duomo. It has drinking water as well as a cooling effect on the immediate area.

Sit in the shade outside the Duomo and look at the fountain. The drinking water from it is refreshing too! Fill up your bottle and carry on walking!

Really liked this small square with a church and a fountain. In additional to this fountain there was a separate horse fountain with water coming out - a classy drinking fountain. Loved walking the length of this beautiful city on top of the hill.

Fountain is in a piazza which provides a good place to sit and rest. Piazza has restaurant and bar as well
