The proposal of drinking high quality water means that during your stay at Florence you would not need to buy countless number of plastic bottles. Public drinking fountains supply “already good to drink” water, which allows you to cut down on your expenses. The habit of refilling plastic and glass containers is increasing and widespreading not only among residents, but city visitors as well.
The high quality drinking fountains are something more than the old fountains, as they provide refrigerated water, plain or sparkling.
In the Historic Centre of Florence you can find drinking fountains in Piazza della Signoria, close to Palazzo Vecchio and behind the statue of Neptune (certainly the drinking fountain has been immediately appreciated by many tourists who pass through it during the day and night) or in via dell'Agnolo in the area of Sant'Ambrogio. There is a drinking fountain also in the popular district of Oltrarno, this fountain is located in the public garden of Piazza Tasso.
However, there are numerous fountains in the peripheral districts and many inhabitants use them every day.
