Nasoni Drinking FountainsFree: All time

You’re not likely to have any shortage on drinking water in Rome. There are some 2,500 fountains scattered throughout Rome where you can refill your water bottle. No, they’re not the decorative fountains like Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain) or Fontana della Barcaccia (Fountain of the Old Boat). These are the “Nasoni”, the drinking fountains. The nasonis are stout and low, with bent spouts that resemble a nose. Hence the name (Nasone in Italian means “big nose’). Even throughout the summer, you’ll have ice-cold fresh drinkable water coming out of the spouts. The water tastes good too. So never ever spend your euros in drinking water while in Rome!
