This was a really cool area, especially the information on the statues that were uncovered from the Mediterranean. It's disheartening though to think about the amount of technology and advancement that is lost when each great civilization falls

It was a nightmare to find - even the local who went with us struggled. Was nice to see but I don't think it was really worth all the effort

Of course one of the beauties of Egypt is seeing all the different ages and cultures in one place. To have access to such a mind-blowing amphitheatre is amazing. The experience itself however is very HOT and a little dangerous. The sun beats down without shade or a visitor center to go in to cool off. The steps and railings... More

The roman amphitheatre was a big disappointment for us, having seen bigger buildings in Turkey. The condition of the site isn't good and possibly Alexandria should look at improving the site. No tourists, no revenue.

Egypt and Alexandria has so much to offer. The roman amphitheater is not worth spending time on. The theater is extremely small and there are many other places that have more to show. Save the theaters for Italy. Very little has been done to make this interesting. Not many words of information on site and a lot needs to be... More

I enjoyed being able to walk around and look at the statues etc. that they have on display. I also appreciated the history and the fact that it is still used. I was with a tour group so we were escorted by security our entire trip, but to be honest I don't know how comfortable I would have felt walking... More

Nice place, in the middle of the City, showing people the History of Alexandria Roman times. I wish it would finally completed restoration work, and tourists could access the rest of the complex.

what started as an excavation site with only most of the amphitheatre visible somce 30 years ago, has now evolved into a huge monument site with roads, arches, baths and smaal shops are around. alexandria is visibly on this site a city of layers, one on top of the other

Very well maintained and is highly recommended to anyone travelling to this part of Egypt. It had been built very similar to the Roman Amphitheater. Very nice even though
