Taking the centre stage at Piazza Archimede, the Fountain of Diana portrays the goddess of hunting standing tall above a chaos of figurines. The statue of Alpheus looking at his love Arethusa as she turns into a fountain owing to the wrath of the river God and Diana coming to her aid, is an iconic story in Greek Mythology. Diana transformed Arethusa into a spring that found its origin in Ortigia.

The fountain adorns the beautiful square and a walk around the gorgeous piece of art, is probably one of the most lovely simple pleasures you can experience when in Syracuse.
