  • Very good but a little hard to find. It is a marvelous piece of Roman engineering and amazing that it is still standing. Well worth the effort to find and have a look.

  • This is an impressive piece of Roman engineering that allowed water to be sent into Constantinople. It is rather off the beaten track but worth the short walk from the main sites of the city

  • Built in 4th century, the remains are still impressive. They are slowly restoring some parts which were rebuilt during different periods in history. It was serving the Topkapi Palace with a daily discharge of 6'000 m3!
  • The aqueduct is amazingly positioned right across a major road, can be used for collecting toll payments!
