The area is full of history from the Greek Period to the present. This is a precious portal into that past. Not on the scale of the ammphitheaters in Turkey, Greece or Italy, but for Egypt it is unique. If you are in Alex, take...More

When in Alexandria, make sure and stop at this ruin to see a typical Greco-Roman amphitheater and Roman bath house. It was very interesting.

I thought that this site was pretty kept up nicely. Some nice photo shots. Ruins are pretty typical for most amphitheaters. They do tend to look very much alike. This was very urban compared to many others though.

They charge extra for foreigners and the place is well kept and maintained. The scale is rather small and not impressive. But you can imagine how Romans enjoyed their leisure times for entertainment and learning.

An ancient Greek Roman structure, this is a small area and easy to walk. Located below the level of the Alexandria city it is surrounded by urbanization. The marble in the stairs and the beautiful mosaics give an impression of that ancient time. Nothing much...More

Amazingly well-preserved Greco-Roman ruins, featuring a large amphitheater and lots of columns and statues over a good-sized area. The only criticism I have is not about the site itself, but rather the facilities: As a foreigner it was a bit hard for me to find...More
