This is real jewel of Roman engineering. Thay say that it was more than 250km long whole system for weather supplay.
I'm a sucker for Roman ruins and the Valens Aqueduct is most impressive (though it would be unfair to call it "ruins"). While is doesn't quite rival Pont du Gard in southern France the span is still very impressive.

On my walk from Sultanahmet to Kariye Museum saw these aqueducts. It's nice that they have been integrated into modern city life but there's not much else you can do. Worth a look if you happen to be in the area.
Marvel at the engineering ability of the 4th century romans, but there's not much to see and it's not possible to reach the top. If you're in the area, take a look - otherwise, don't bother.
It is an architectural and engineering marvel. Some parts are still in good shape. It is more than a thousand year old. It is more than thirty kilometers. İt is an interesting site to see.
