Free Water

IT's worth taking advantage of these fountains for the free water they offer, especially on a hot day

Fresh, clean water!

With fountains all over the city, drinking water is never a problem here. Just fill up your water bottle and drink the fresh, clean water. Romans are so lucky!

There are over 2500 of these fountains scattered all over Rome. These fountains supply fresh clean water to visitors and locals alike. You can fill your water bottle from them for nothing. We had no ill effects from drinking this water which we did every day.

Fresh Clean Spring Fountain Water
Jun 2018 • Friends
Free fresh Clean Spring Fountain water available in and around Rome.
The drinking water from these fountains are safe.
You will never be thursty in Rome because there is an abundance of these fountains dotted all over the city, all cold and fresh.
I don't think the general Italian population realize how blessed they are to have this available to them.

Water, water, everywhere!

Nasoni - Fontanelle Pubbliche, these are public drinking water fountains. Italy is blessed with lots of water, apparently, so you see these fountains all over the country, practically. We have seen and used them in all the Italian cities we have visited. They are incredibly safe and very handy to use. Some of these fountains even have bubbly water! They are free for anyone to drink from. So get your water bottles and fill them up. We do it all the time, and have been doing so for several years now. No side effects. The only effect is that they keep you safe and sane!

Fresh water

Give it a go fresh, clean, free and refreshing. Bring along an empty water bottle on your travels around Italy and you will find these everywhere.

A part of everyday life in Rome

Some people say you shouldn't drink water from public fountains in European cities. I was a bit hesitant to do this in Rome, but most reports say the waters are safe to drink because they flow from the hills outside the city. I took several mouthfuls from a few when I was there in June. I'm certain I'd be gulping down more in August when the temperature can get very hot. You can also fill water bottles from the fountains---just don't wash your face or feet in them! (Every so often there are stories of people jumping into Roman fountains, whether as a publicity stunt, or just to cool off.)
Some of the smaller fountains are attractive, with water spurting out of the most unexpected places! The sound of rippling and cascading water often makes me relaxed and sleepy. Other small fountains are not that nice-looking, being rather functional and sometimes having their bases littered with cigarette butts and bits of trash.
As for the public fountains that have downward-curving spouts, you don't need to bend down low to drink. Notice that most have a small hole on top of the spout. All you need to do is put your thumb or finger over the main opening (a bit unsanitary, I suppose!). The water will then be diverted under pressure to shoot out of the small hole on top---often in a nice even spray right into your mouth!

Probably not safe but good

These water fountains around the city are convenient, the water tastes all right and it's surprisingly cold even on a hot day. I gave it only four stars because the pipes look like you're getting a little lead poisoning with every sip.

More than your ordinary drinking fountain. Great place to stop and fill up your water bottles while walking around Rome.
