A lot of interesting ruins and historical finds, love hearing the history and most importantly this is one of its kind in Egypt so you wont find anything like this anywhere else in the country

Set away from the main road this is a fab place to spend an afternoon. Take time to wander through the ruins, admire the findings from the deep sea dive and visit the villa of the birds on the far side. They're currently renovating the mosaics and they are truly something to be marvelled at!

The amphitheatre speaks well about the Roman influence in Egypt. However, it looked like more ruins than history that had to speak.

For better or worse, the Romans left a big foot print in the Mediterranean and this amphitheatre is another one of it's marvels. Yes it's another ruin, but the site is amazing. The acoustics from the sweet spot of the amphitheatre is incredible, where a small voice can be broadcasted enormously.

The Roman Amphitheatre, and surrounding area that they are unearthing, helps you see how many cultures have been part of the city of Alexandria. Although it was not an incredible ruin compared to others in the world, it is nonetheless an interesting one...if you are getting an overview of what shaped the city historically.

very interesting, and strangely quiet down below the hustle and bustle of the Alexandria streets. Was fascinated by the live dig going on.

This place looks like an archaeological dig. The cut-marble seating, columns, and smaller chambers are all intact. It's easy to imagine the place when it was in use. There is a path above the amphitheater that leads to an enclosed chamber with signs indicating that excavation is still in progress, but we've never seen evidence of that and we've visited... More

Just soak into this site. Try voice modulation and see the difference in your own voice when you face the audience side. Impressive how they designed it in a manner to allow winds carry your sound waves.
