Too bad there are cars parked on the square around the fountain, and trucks unloading near it. The fountain itself is beautiful and borfders the old city centre where mainly pedestrians can go.

There are some nice cafes around this busy piazza, with a modern fountain at its heart. It's busy here with many cars and buses, but pleasant enough to sit for a while with an espresso and pastry.

This is a grand classical fountain in a plaza. You'll probably come across it while exploring Ortigia. It's worth taking a look, but only for a few minutes.

Benches round so always some in sun and shade. Red Bus and local bus stop here. Tourist Information centre is very close.

This is a beautiful fountain centrally located in Ortigia in the middle of the Piazza Archimede. I would recommend seeing the fountain and the piazza as part of a walking tour so that you can understand their history.

On Archimedes square you don't miss this special fountain with Diana, a Roman goddess of the hunt, with hound and her bow and arrow.

Pretty fountain at the top of a main shopping street. Situated in a not too busy roundabout so easy to find and snap some pictures.

Surrounded by neoclassical buildings (Bank of Sicily among others), this fountain and square are a neat spot on your walk in Ortiga Island.
