Ciao, Mr Bond
Daniel Craig arrived in Italy on Sunday 6th April 2008. Filming for the upcoming
James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" is
now underway in and around the town of Siena. According to local press, Craig
arrived during the night, escorted by two bodyguards. He has taken residence
in a quiet region on the outskirts of the city. Click here for a report on
the upcoming shooting schedule.
The first scenes to be filmed were in Sant' Agata, where
Craig was performing stunts on cables and harnesses. In
one sequence, 007 climbs a drain pipe up the side of a
building whilst his target runs across the rooftop. Watch

The town council at Siena gave permission for filming in
which James Bond chases through the steep and narrow cobbled
streets, across the rooftops and through the underground
medieval aqueducts, while the horses thunder round the Campo,
the main square. Bond himself will not be riding any horses
during the film. The first round of filming
back in August focused on the race, with scenes involving
actors to be inserted later.

a window on to the roof of a speeding bus in the narrow
streets of Siena, Italy.
