Rome’s drinking fountains, called the nasoni (big noses), are a great way to save money and reduce plastic. The water is potable and great to know about on a hot day.

Originally installed in 1874, there are apparently more than 2500 of them, more than 250 of which are within the Aurelian walls in the center of Rome.

Watch the video for a hand's on demonstration of how they work.
