After different hystorically-touristical posts I want to entertain you a little. Now we will confront modern life and antique life.
1 -You can visit 2 public baths in the excavations of the little town Herculaneum today. Open this post Floors If The Roman Houses to see the photos.
-As I know (maybe I'm wrong), there are NOT public baths today.
2 -Modern persons like to eat something in fast foods, restaurants etc. Specially if sitting in the street.
-Antique Romans had the same sin. There are different places where to eat in every street in Herculaneum... By the way, there were rooms behind the main to eat there, too.
3 -There are many fountains where you can drink in modern Italian towns
-There were different public places where Antique Romans could take water too
