    Aquaduct Ruins

    June 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.
