Rome Water

Every city has some defining feature: Paris may be the City of Lights but Rome is the City of Water. And it has been that way ever since the city was founded along the banks of the Tiber in the 8th century BC. Ranging from aqueducts to historic and common drinking fountains, there must be more public water per square foot than any other city except those like Amsterdam that have been built on canals. Every important public place has grand fountain and often also a modest drinking source, making water a truly public good.
