Friends of ours recommended the visit to the cisterns and I must admit to thinking it rather odd.
However, once you start descending the stairs into the dimly-lit interior you begin to appreciate the scale and beauty of this ancient endeavour. The size of the underground system is almost overwhelming and there is a delightful peacefulness just below the immense and bustling city of Istanbul.
A highly recommended visit.
