In Roman towns, public baths were popular. They were a place for relaxing and meeting friends or for merchants to do business. All men and women would try to go to the public baths at least once a day. There were also aqueducts which ensured Romans had a clean water supply, sewers which disposed of human waste cleanly, central heating systems which warmed the inside of people's houses and paved roads which allowed easy travel between towns.
