When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and that includes sipping cool, fresh, clean water from the city’s 2500+ public water fountains. The question is how to do this without looking like a doofus or projecting your bottom out for easy pinching.
During a food tour in Rome we learned a handy trick to help avoid embarrassing stooping positions at a water fountain. If you plug the end of the spout with your thumb, the water will spurt out of a tiny hole at the top, perfect for sipping. Our guide from Eating Italy tours, Sarah, demonstrates the right way to stoop and sip.
