Between 312 bc and 212 ad eleven aqueducts were built to supply the city of Rome. During this period and later on numerous aqueducts were also constructed, all over the Roman Empire: from the United Kingdom and The Netherlands to Morocco and Jordan.
For a list of over 600 Roman aqueducts, see elsewhere on this website.
The most famous are the aqueducts of Nimes (France) with the well known bridge, the Pont du Gard, the aqueduct (bridge) of Segovia (Spain) and the 1350 m long arcade of the Aqua Claudia and the Aqua Anio Novus, just outside Rome (Italy).
