What you will actually see is narrow stone tunnels and steps that go down the equivalent of about 5 stories. There are also 'rooms'--but nothing to actually see besdides more areas carved out of stone. The entrance fee, 15 TL per person is OK, but if you want to know what you are looking at, the 'guide' charges extra--he started at 30 TL per person, but when we said we weren't interested, he offered a "special price" of 20 TL per person. We truly weren't interested, since we planned to look up the history and other details in Wikipedia later on, so we didn't take him up on it. I am a tall woman (5' 9") and there were several places where it was somewhat awkward to walk crouched over, in order to not hit one's head. Also requires some stamnia to walk up and down several stairs bent over. This is not a good spot for a claustrophobe--there are several places where two people cannot pass one another, and anyone wanting to exit quickly would be in trouble. It has a long history, apparently going back 4,000 years, the guard volunteered, and includes some period where it was used by Christians. But no evidence of anything like that is visible. There are the usual vendors outside: carpets, knick-knacks, cafe, restaurant.
