Very interesting that the roman empires influence extended this far. This is the only one of its kind in Egypt. Well worth a visit if in Alexandria.

This is a must on your list to visit when you are in Alexandria. One can feel amazed that they are around ancient ruins that was once full of life. It is full of history so study up before you go.

A very beautiful place to visit, I visited the coliseums in room back in 2000, and today I felt same feelings. It's just an amazing place to spend couple of hours exploring old civilisation. We walked around my family and I and enjoyed it a lot. I wished if they had a gift shop to buy a souvenirs.

This place really takes you back by several centuries. The architecture is so devised, I believe that without the modern electronic gadgets, one can hear clearly whatever one said from the stage! The ruins are still almost full. The accompanying garden is also nicely planned.

and speak-out to the audience that would have sat in the amphitheater. Just do it - and you'll find out why! So cool, and unreal.

Grab a tour guide! Amazing that you can still touch ruins and explore. We learned about evacuations still occurring. Head to the dive shop, too learn about the underwater explorations.

My child is interested in archaeology and the main reason why I decided to visit Roman Theater was she. And actually I could not imagine that this sight would touch her so deeply.
