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

Spent an hour or so wandering here. Interesting to see what's left of old Rome but not as spectacular as some others I've seen.

The morning after we arrived in Alexandria by train from Cairo, we visited this Roman ruin. A wonderful place to walk around. Just a short time is needed. Easy to get to because right in the heart of the city. Well worth it if you are in the area and have a few days to explore all the well known... More

The Amphitheater was smaller than I expected, but still remained standing after so many years. This relic of roman civilization will take you back in time. However, there is nothing else to see or do. 15 minutes will more than suffice to visit this place.
