Aquaduct RuinsJune 2, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C
We got a glimpse of original aquaducts while exploring today (~2000 years old!)
Quick highlights thanks to Rick Steves:
- Romans considered good drinking water essential to health
- Water was transferred in from up to 50 miles away via these aquaducts (all by gravity)
- Today, Rome still gets its water from mineral springs - Some of which are naturally frizzy! (Frizzante)
This last point was especially interesting to us since every eatery we've been to in Rome has offered water as still or frizzante.
