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.

This is a gorgeous place to visit. There are two sections to this place and two different tickets as well. I have only done the amphitheatre section both times. If you are a photo guru this is a great place to visit when the sun is shining to get great photos off the ruins. A must see while in Alexandria.

If you are in Alexandria, why not stop by and see the amphitheater. It is very small, and only fairly recently excavated...not nearly as impressive as some others (Aspendos, Ephesus). However, it is in good condition and easy to access. One fun thing is the acoustic "center" of the amphitheater performance area is marked with a small plaque. If you... More

It is a small place and you can visit the whole in half an hour. Walk down to the spot where you can hear your amplified voice. Its quite interesting and you can sing a song its fun. Apart from that there are some objects on display, some paintings and a bird bath.

This place is comparably small to the other ancient theathres there are. Still, it's worth a stroll to see the remains of Roman influence in Egypt. I watched the film Agora that sets in Alexandria. It probably doesn't screen this place tough. But visiting it could reproduce our thought about the people once there, the story hidden and stuff in... More

The ruins are evidence of a time when the Romans ruled the world, they have been simply every where. I understand Helen of Troy was hiding here for a time as well.

As amphitheatres go this one is not all that spectacular, but it's interesting nonetheless because of its historic relevance and age. There are numerous statues and treasures uncovered from underwater around the top of the amphitheatre. And don't miss the spot on the ground where you can sing without a microphone and everyone in the stands can hear you!

It's a very well conserved but not very protected roman amphitheater. It's a sweet and romantic place to wonder around.

The roman amphitheatre is a small place to visit. What i didn't appreciate that there isn't a guide service or any legend that explain what you are seeing.In Alexandria museum the Roman amphitheatre section explain a lot more than the live place. For the price is cheap for foreigner about 30 gineh ( 4 dollars). You can spend one hour... More
