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.
