Grand Fountain in a Grand Square

Ortigia's largest traffic square has this splendid fountain in the middle. The modest amount of traffic moves slowly around it. Very classic design.

We visited this massive fountain in the daytime and again at night time. Beautiful! It's history surrounds it as well as many buildings which have their own history. This fountain is worth seeing, you can even toss a coin info you want.

Pretty statue of the Goddess of hunting, from Greek lore...located at the Piazza Archimede is spectacular at night when lit up, nice pic. Walk around the Piazza and enjoy some gelato or coffee from a nearby vendor. Ciao bella!

This fountain, located in the middle of one of Ortigia's main squares is floodlit at night, as are several of the historical and architecturally-striking along the edges of the plaza. Well worth taking the time to visit.

This is a beautiful fountain in need of some TLC. We routed through this plaza on our way to the Cathedral. Good for photos and probably a cooling splash on a hot day.
