Attraction details
Owner description: 4000ft long Aquaduct Tunnel 'often compared to the Wonders of the World' as it is one of only two tunnels in history that was excavated from both ends and met in the middle with success (and this was in 6thCenturyBC - before any kind of mapping or surveying)!

This is one of the many Wonders of Samos and not to be missed. If however you are in the slightest claustrophobic then maybe it is not the place for you. However, it is such an experience that you should just say "I am Going to do it"

An amazing piece of engineering, lovely and cool but not for the claustrophobic! Its about a 15 min walk from town (in the heat) and the views on the way are great.

You must see this place of you are okay in enclosed places. Not suitable for claustophobics as the entrance is narrow and low. Its fascinating.

You can walk a 100 meters into this tunnel. The costs are 4 euro. It is interesting if you know the whole story behind it. Practically there isnt to much to been seen.

If your like me and not claustrophobic then this trip is very interesting. However if you are like my husband and don't like small spaces then give this one a miss. You have to walk down a narrow tunnel to get into the main tunnel which opens up. There's not that much to see but its wonderful to think that it was built thousands of years ago.
