A good start point to explore the area. Admire the fountain over a coffee and then set off into the warren of tiny streets and enjoy interesting shopping, a drink or food and soak up the charming atmosphere.

Well it's an impressive thing, but you cant really relax and enjoy it because you are in the middle of city traffic and the ugly modern cheap cement buildings...

As we walked the streets of Ortigia, an island that is part of Siracusa in Italy, we often passed Diana's Fountain, also known as Fontana di Diana or La Fontana d'Artemide depending on if you prefer Greek or Roman gods. The view changed in each type of light and no type of light protected the photographer from the cars whizzing... More

This place has so many lovely sights, no wonder this wonderful fountain stands out and has myths and a history of it's own.

Situated on the Passagiata route fromTemple to Duomo - nicely proportioned piazza with this as its centrepiece. Nice to see water flowing in a fountain!

I fell in love with the Fountain of Diana and spent 15 minutes taking photos from all aspects. To my mind, this fountain eclipses Trevi Fountain in Rome for sheer beauty and attractiveness. It is situated very close to the Piazza di Duomo, so you have no excuse not to seek it out.
