“Unique tomb paintings”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

There are only two tombs open to visitors - on one you can clearly see the Graeco-Roman features of the deceased! Climb to the top of the mountain for great views of the oasis, particularly at sunset.

“Life and death in Siwa”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

The Roman tombs gave us a real sense of the life the Romans led in Siwa. You can see how they adapted Egyptian motifs to Roman customs and vice-versa. People in Egypt live with their history constantly, and these tombs give some insight into one stage of that history. And, there are great views from the mountain.
