Drinking Water Fountains, Rome: 4 reviews and 9 photos
“Nothing can be more agreeable to the eyes of a stranger, especially in the heat of summer, than the great number of public fountains that appear in every part of Rome, embellished with all the ornaments of sculpture, and pouring forth prodigious quantities of cool, delicious water, brought in aqueducts from different lakes, rivers, and sources, at a considerable distance from the city.”
from “Travels Through France And Italy” by Tobias Smollett
ACQUA PURO Mr. Smollett got it right. In the warm weather that is Rome, to be able to freshen up with a splash of water, and to able to quench one’s thirst makes the going most agreeable. This truly is a civilized city. What wonderful, beautiful ways this civility is brought to us!
