“Worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

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.

“Great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Remember this is the only Amphithatre in the whole of egypt.
Which is a bit of a shock i must say.
It is not very big and they have placed a few things they have found in the sea (quite nice)
You will not need long at the place. They are still digging in the area so i am sure they will find more

“Small, but worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

There is a place to stand in front of the audience, where if you speak, the accoustics are perfect! Worth trying!
30 minutes unless you really know your history!
