I decided to walk all the way to this place.
I started at the parking lot at Fortress Kale and walked straight on the Samoilova road. On my way I passed French soldier cemetery and the US embassy. Then, at Boulevard Nikola Karev, the pavement ended and I joint a homeless just walking along the highway. I would not have never done this with not seeing him walking there. It was kind of dangerous I think, so I recommend to take a taxi from at least the US embassy.
When the road crosses Boulevard Slovenia go right, on the first right again and then keep left. After passing a lot of worn down houses you will reach the aqueduct.
I was the only person there, took a few pictures and then walked back to the main road where I took a taxi to get back to the pavement (at US embassy).
The aqueduct and especially the way to get there were definately a great experience, even though the place was located in a poor surounding because of the scattered trash.

This is a strange one, an important piece of the country's history but seemingly totally neglected. I went there on foot from the city - along the river, crossing over, then walking at the side of busy roads without a footway, and finally along a dirt track (ignore the convenient looking straight road on the map, it goes through an army camp and is out of bounds). In its own way, the aqueduct is impressive, though I can't grasp why they can't properly date it as either Roman or Byzantine (I think the latter is more likely). With all the money spent on imitation classical statues in the city centre, why can't they look after a real part of their history?

I walked to the aqueduct from the city centre. Its a bit of a walk, but you are rewarded with an impressive structure, which is in decay.

We took the local bus to the big cemetery nearby then took a taxi the aqueduct. The place does not have signage to get there so you will get a bit lost, I showed a picture of the aqueduct to the taxi driver and he knew exactly where to go on a short dirt road. We enjoyed taking pictures of this great structure and when we were done we walked back a short 10 minutes to the main road where we flagged down a taxi back to the city center. You should only visit during day light hours as there is no one around this abandoned area.

This is an interesting piece of history. Shame the location is not cleaner up and have proper access to it. The taxi will take you there on a dirt road. There is no information at the locations so read up before. The country could make this a great attraction if they wanted to!

This is a good one if you are trying to avoid the numerous statues and bridges recently raised in Skopje. This is one of Skopje's true historical gems

We had our own car and followed the GPS directions to get to the Aqueduct. Sadly, the access road is fenced off so you have no option but to leave your car in a rather suspect area and hike in.

Go by taxi, especially in summer when it's 30+ degrees.
You only need 5-10mins to take some snaps, you go through gypsy slums to get there, no signage, but defs worth seeing for any Macedonian History enthusiast!
Part of our history..

In a middle of nowhere you can come across aqueduct from byzantine times. You can get there by taking bus from city center and then walk cca 10 minutes. Althought it is the only aqueduct in the vicinity it is poorly preserved, but it still offers some insight into historic bacground of the surrounding area.

This is very old aqueduct from the Roman's time and is close to Center of the City. Location is not in the best condition...
