Incredible experience!

I hightly recommend this place. It is amazing. Leave your bags or backpack in your vehicle since one must squeeze through tight tunnels. Dont go if you are claustrophobic.

this premises is consisting of a very narrow corridors with low ceiling heights and nothing to see other than small small rooms with narrow corridors .... Asif you are in a grave .... I don't recommend this place for families with kids at all .... and not good for people with phobia of narrow things and underground structures

What an incredible place. Dating back BC and evolving, getting deeper, as the Romans improve the construction with their technology. A site not too be missed. You weave your way through the labyrinth with a guide listening to the history of this magnificent site. They have just found another underground city even bigger. Incredible.

I was hesitant doing the tour as I am claustrophic but it was a pleasant trip to the 'dungeons'. The tour was very pleasant and except for one or two spots, I did not feel uncomfortable at all. It was a good experience to be able to see how people lived in the olden time. it's a tour I would... More

Perfect visual of ancient civilization and their way of life is a must visit. One also needs to be physically fit enough to enter this underground city. people having hypertension/knee problems/asthma may please avoid.

Surreal experience traveling downward into this underground city... no sunlight... no windows.... incredible to believe people actually lived in these caves... as I bent my head to avoid the cave walls above me I imagined what I would do if I needed a quart of milk... To think that hundreds of families lived in these caves for protection and safety,... More

This ancient underground city has to be seen to be believed. Take a guide with you - but bargain hard on price, they will rip you off if you let them. Bargain to half or less the price first offered. There are many guides to choose from.

Wow what an interesting place where the Christians hid and took refuge in the Middle Ages and beyond. "City" is a bit of a misnomer as what one sees are endless tunnels on a number of levels and hundreds of rooms off the tunnels to enable general activities of daily living to take place. I don't recommend undertaking a tour... More
