Chilly’s Reusable Water Bottles
The best way to drink in Rome
Have you ever seen the drinking fountains in Rome? They are all throughout the city and you’ll only find them in Rome. Nasone, that’s how they are called and it literally means large nose because of the shape of its metal spout. Thanks to these nasoni, you have fresh drinkable water for free in Rome which makes it totally not worth buying single-use plastic water bottles. What we do is refill our reusable Chilly’s water bottle when we are out and about. We love Chilly’s water bottles because they are made out of stainless steel, they don’t leak, and they keep water cold for so many hours! Though there are many different styles and sizes available, the small 250ml bottle is the one Benedetta and Valeria use the most.
By the way, going back to our local nasone fountains. They serve as necessary ventilation valves for the water-supply system in Rome and the constantly flowing water keeps the water in the pipes from stagnating. So what might look like a complete waste of drinking water, actually isn’t. We love Roman nasoni!
