Fontana di Orione : Michelin's recommendations

At the centre of the piazza del Duomo, this elegant, Florentine style 16C fountain is the work of the Tuscan, Montorsoli. Constructed in commemoration of the opening of an aqueduct, it represents four rivers: the Tiber, the Nile, the Ebro and... the Camaro, the river in Messina whose water was redirected by the new aqueduct. Orion, the legendary founder of the town, guards over the fountain.
