Bottini Tour, The Medieval aqueduct

In the Medieval age Siena has been one of the first town to build a very innovative and functional aqueduct. Thousand of men, women and sometimes children were employed full time to bore tunnels in the tuff. Now it is, possible to visit this suggestive place with a specialized guide that will create again for you the immense sacrifice of those people.

Under the pietra serena of the streets of Siena a tangled system of tunnels brought the running water inside the houses of the city, since the 12th century. Calcareous encrustations and stalactites come out from everywhere giving to this place a fascinating atmosphere. The mysterious and unknown part of Siena.
