Aqueducts in Rome
Nothing reflects the power or ingenuity of ancient Rome like the aqueducts. These structures transported water to the city center bringing about new standards of sanitation by providing sewage systems, public bathrooms and running water to the residents of Rome. In addition to this civilized way of living, the aqueducts also afforded the Romans a certain privileged style of life that included luxurious public baths and decorative fountains.
A great place to go running!
