Aqueducts were stone structures found throughout the former Roman Empire. They provided fresh water to the different baths, fountains and households of the ancient cities. Sizeable networks existed in the cities of Rome and Constantinople; the majority of these aqueducts in Rome, however, were in states of disrepair due to Borgia rule during the Renaissance.
The Acquedotto Claudia was an aqueduct that was found in Rome in the Antico district. Like many of the aqueducts found in Rome, this Aqueduct was in a state of disrepair. When Ezio came to Rome, he paid Architects to renovate all four broken sections of the aqueduct.
