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)!

Guess I had higher expectation before entering this tunnel. It was a 20-25 minutes trip back and forth with a guide who spoke limited English (which is ok). But when we started to ask questions about the tunnel, the guide couldn't give any answers at...More

It is located near Pythagorio. It is a ancient aqua duct that has restored recently, If you can, you have to visit it. It is something different from other ancients monuments.

What is incredible about this tunnel is that it was cut simultaneously from the north and south by two crews of stonemasons working with hammers and chisels and both met in the middle, in a straight line, with almost no deviation. This aqueduct supplied water,...More

We passed by as we were visiting Pythagerio. We were lucky the gates were open and we could join a free tour. Note that they lock the place when a tour is ongoing (there were two staff and both joined the tour). It's a nice...More

We were intending to visit this on our trip but it was still closed. We did go to the gates which were there to prevent anyone getting in but they weren't very exciting! Good job we'd visited the Monastery beforehand.

One star not because it was bad, but because it's closed (and this is not made very clear). There is actually a rather small and inconspicuous sign at the start of the road from Pythagoreion, but if you miss that you won't find out until...More
