LXXV Roman fountains

:
Only a drop in the ocean!

Rome is said to have 2000 decorative fountains - and as many more again, just
for drinking from!

The 100 photos here show 75 of them... most of the famous ones, as well as others
that may be less familiar?
::
For walks that pass many of the city's aqueducts, baths, fountains etc, the local
tourist board produced a good leaflet "Rome - the culture of water" - available
on ___ http://www.italiantouristoffice.se/sv/docs/79.pdf
