Blaring techno bounces around the walls of this underground water cistern dating back to late Roman times (circa 500 AD). The place was originally built by the Roman Emperor Theodosis, who would probably turn in his grave if he saw it now! As you descend into the cavernous laser-lit space surrounded by ancient columns and three-foot thick red brick walls, you will see a labyrinth of secret paths winding through the pillars and around the back wall. Then, you will suddenly find yourself right in the middle of the antediluvian dance floor. The historical remains have been restored as much as possible without artificially reproducing them and the interior evokes a feeling of mystery and intrigue.
