Vespasianus Titus Tunnel is part of the Tentative list of Turkey in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Vespasianus Titus Tunnel was a Roman construction near the antique city of Seleuceia Pieria. It is 875m in length and was used to divert flood waters and transport water into the city. Bridges and cisterns completed the tunnel complex. It was carved out of the rocks by manpower only on the orders of the Roman emperor Vespasian (who reigned 69–79 AD).
