Went with low expectations but was enchanted with the whole set up.
When the site upgrade is complete it will be high on the Alexandria wish list containing such a cross section of Egyptian, Roman and Greek artefacts and influences.
Caracalla and the horse bones...More
Day 2: We were met by Shahinaz in the hotel lobby, and Magady drove us to Alexandria. The catacombs are situated in an old built up area through some back streets. Once again the tourism and antiquities police were on duty inspecting all vehicles. They...More
A must see in Alexandria, this rock cut underground burial ground is unlike the other catacombs found in Egypt. Considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages, the Catacomb of Kom el Shoqafa meaning “Moulds of Shards” is believed to have been...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.
