12th ctyfirst aqueducts constructed.

Description

The medieval aqueducts and cisterns of Siena, located below the center of the old city, are called Bottini. There are guided tours during summer offered by the La Diana Association.

The tunnels and aqueducts became world famous in 2008 with the new James Bond movie. In the opening scene James Bond (Daniel Craig) catches a villain and delivers it in the tunnels where M waits. When the villain is killed by a traitor, he has to chase the traitor through the subterranean cisterns.
