This place deserves its UNESCO award. There are a number of different halls most of which are amazingly large and their condition was surprising good for its age. The entrance - paid for by a British sponsor apparently - was shaded and very cool. Seemingly helpful ticket office - but they didnt tell me I could buy a combined ticket - there needed to be clearer signs showing how you buy combined tickets (Please note they are available)
We started wih a long walk down and after that hall seemed to follow hall. I had reservations over one hall which had an artificial floor - but I guess that is to protect the original. Renovation is on going and I hope it looks more like it has NOT been renovated when they have finshed
The signs were a tad difficult to follow, and the brief explanations on the signs were all too brief. Finally the tunnel. Dont do this if you are claustrophobic - I followed a slow moving French group and wished they moved faster. Also, I had to duck my head a number of tines ot avoid the low ceiling
After the crypt, we ended up in the Turkish Bazzar - a surpising end to what was other wise a wonderful experience
