I was a little disappointed here after having read about it. I was not allowed to take pictures, yet pictures via phone were allowed, so I did get some. The site itself was still worth my time. The place reeks of historical significance and some...More
This is an unique place where the coffin of dead bodies kept down under the soil. The rounded stairs 99 in number after which you will reach at the bottom of the well where you can see where they kept the dead bodies of the...More
In our opinion, these will become the number 1 or 2 attraction in Alex. Restoration is continuing and the site is being developed. You go down into the ground and as extra levels and rooms are excavated it will become more and more impressive. We...More
This is a nice collection of ruined tombs. The highlight is 3 to 4 stories done catacomb. The pictures of the carvings on the walls are the only reason to go down there. Go at the beginning of the day to avoid crowds and humidity....More

The site is not that impressive if you are looking it compared to other sites in Egypt. The reason to see it is because it is one of the best sites of its kind, so you see it to have seen it and to be able to put other things in context. If you are short on time then skip it. If you are really short on time skip Alexandria all together. Aswan and Luxor have far more to offer.
