  • Learn the myth of Alpheus and Arethusa in the heart of the island of Ortygia, in a stunning mirror of freshwater
  • Witness nature, including papyrus, and see the ducks that flow into the salty waters of the Porto Grande of Syracuse
  • Find out about floods, earthquakes, and more recently droughts, which have all affected the water source

As one of Syracuse's most revered symbolic sites, the Fountain of Arethusa has starred in songs, poems, and plays for centuries.

On this magical mythical audio tour, journey through this freshwater haven and learn about the unrequited love story of Arethusa and Alpheus, a sea nymph and a river god.

For thousands of years, the waters here have been home to fish, once sacred to Artemis. Recent times have brought a thriving colony of papyrus plants and some very accommodating ducks.
