Romance Underground

What's under old cities can be just as intriguing as the history of its streets. I remember reading "The Dead Sea Scrolls" by Elizabeth Peters and marvelling at the thought of travelling underground, through forgotten thoroughfares and buildings, beneath the heart of Jerusalem.

The photo below is of El Jadida cistern, Morocco, but doesn't it capture the romance I'm talking about?
