Descripción

Enjoy a half-hour guided tour of the famous Basilica Cistern with a fast-track ticket!

Built in the 4th century, and the size of a cathedral, the Basilica Cistern was used as a water reservoir in the Byzantine era to supply the Grand Palace in Istanbul. 

You will meet your guide in front of the entrance to the Basilica Cistern and benefit from fast-track admission. You will enjoy a 30-minute guided tour and learn about the history of this place that stores up to 80,000 cubic metres of water delivered from the Eğrikapı water distribution centre in the Belgrade Forest. Your guide will also explain the origin of the Medusa heads, a reference to Greek mythology, which you can admire in the Basilica Cistern. Your visit will end with a guided tour of this must-see place in Istanbul.
