Arethusa fountain

Arethusa fountain

Enjoy time out from the city’s hustle and bustle at this serene natural pool with its fountain and freshwater spring. The water is half-filled with tall papyrus plants and there’s a balcony where you can stop and take it all in. Sip a fresh coffee and enjoy a spot of people-watching or look out onto the glittering Med and see the yachts nodding in the port.
