About Fonte Aretusa, Syracuse

Located in the historic centre of Syracuse, the Fonte Aretusa is the place where, according to Greek Mythology, Aretusa returned to the earth after she escaped Arcadia. The fountain dates back to the ancient times when it was the only source of water to what is currently known as Ortigia. Even though there are many stories that shape around the fountain, what truly pulls visitors here is the sheer romantic sight of the sunken pond surrounded by the historic buildings and the gorgeous ducks and fishes that have made this pond their home.

Some people say if you throw a goblet in the Arcadia spring in Greece, it will end up right here!

  • Very nice place and a beautiful promenade. There is also a beach, if you take 20m high steps down the see from the old city wall. Views are impressing. In the morning you can catch a beautiful sunrise here. In the evening this part of the island is much less crowded, than the western embankment or the central streets.

  • This natural freshwater spring forms an interesting gathering place for both ducks and humans. A nearby statue and a sign with a beautiful quote from Ovid's Metamorphosis evoke the nymph who served Diana and for whom the spring is named. The spring itself is not a spectacular site but the historic and mythical context makes it far more charming.

  • A breath of fresh air in this very open space. The city is often very close quarters so it's lovely to enjoy this open Piazza!

  • Pretty little corner in the city, perfect when the sun is setting. Large boulevards lined with trees and multiple cafes. A good location to spend your Apertivo. There is small beach down below for kicks.

  • Lovely to sit on one of the benches with the locals and watch the world go by. The fountain is beautiful.
