James Bond films are well known for using glamorous locations for filming otherwise mundane scenes.

The film location used in the movie is the Basilica Cistern, which was indeed constructed by the Emperor Constantine 1600 years ago, although it was significantly altered and enlarged by Justinian a couple of hundred years later. It's a cathedral-sized underground space, filled with columns carved in intricate designs and a beautiful vaulted ceiling.

So it's actually a bit more than a mere sewer.
