Cyane Spring (Fonte Ciane)

Recommended
The path along the river to the mouth (2.7km) offers a very pleasant walk between cultivated fields and papyrus forests, with bamboos mixed in. A boat trip takes you up a stretch of the river. From Syracuse's Ponte Grande, you head for a place where the vegetation is rich with reeds, ancient ash trees and eucalyptuses. After a lock, you plunge into a lush papyrus "forest" rising out of the water.
