This archeological complex is one of the hidden gems of Alexandria. The most famous part of it is the impressive roman amphitheater. But the complex has a lot more to offer. Including study chambers, a roman bath, a residential quarter, a house (named: Bird's house) with amazing mosaics, and a display of ancient artifacts recovered from the sea. The information... More

This little villa is a great way to spend an hour or 2. The roman ruins are magnificent without being too much. The Villa with the beautiful tiles shows you a great picture you must see.

Definitely not worth the trip, you have to pay more to see the whole site and it's not that interesting.

This Roman theater and the surrounding ruins was only discovered in the mid 20th century so the theater is in great condition. Make sure you stand in the orators position and test the acoustics. Incredible. Try quoting some Shakespeare.

This is an interesting historic site uncovered only relatively recently . Its well preserved and much excavation is still being done nearby. There are lots of other statues in the area to see.

The Roman amphitheater reminds me of Rome, same design and structure, just in Egypt. They are still excavating the site but to learn that this was just discovered 60 years ago is really mind blowing. They still use the theatre today for small gatherings.

Loved the history told to me by my tour guide about the place. It's really something when you think about it. Our world is so small but back then it was uncharted territory. I would recommend a tour of this place without hesitation.
