An impressive place. Must have been something in its heyday. One can almost imagine sitting there at night watching a play under the night sky.

The mosaic of the birds hidden away in the corner of the site is beautiful and not to be missed. Excavations continue and there is so much more to see than a few years ago, but there are less recovered artefacts on display as they are now in museums and you can no longer sit in the original amphitheatre seats...

The amphitheatre is an interesting place to visit. Ok, there are more beautiful ones in the world, but this one is nice. Do not forget to take a look at the house of the birds. You do not have to buy a ticket. It was closed, you can get the idea of the mansion from looking inside through the glass.... More

You can walk around the Amphitheatre without being pestered by people purporting to be guides, we were never approached and freely wandered and able to take as many photographs as we wanted. Well worth a visit, in fact would say it is a must see!

This was one of the few historical sites we visited that seemed put together. There's currently a Polish excavation project in the works there which was fun to watch.

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.
