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.

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.
