I have had the blessing of attending few musical events at the Roman Amphitheater. Everything about this place is fabulous, it is so alive and it takes you back to the Roman time. A must visit during your stay in Alexandria.

It's taken Archaeologists some time to piece together the puzzle of this place. One of the intriguing things is that it's below street level. In other words, it's been dug out of the earth. Most probably used for music and performances it's a mystery as...More

There isn't a lot to see here but it is interesting enough and very pleasant. The part I enjoyed most was the room with mosaics of the birds.

I enjoyed the visit to the Roman Amphitheatre very much. It was nice to go to the spot where the artists would have performed and try the acoustics by saying something and hearing your voice spreading everywhere.

You can't wonder around the site but it's part of the attractions if you haven't seen a roman amphitheater before, well kept, clean and easy to access.

The amphitheater is the most intact item in this ruined city’s. There’s some remnants of Roman baths, temple and other buildings. Some nice mosaics. Best part there’s no one to pedal their wares.

Another nice place to see in Alexandria, interesting to see the blend between the romans and egyptians.

We happened to arrive shortly before closing so we didn't have a lot of time but I felt like it was enough. We had no tour guide and it may have been worth the extra money if they offered one (not sure if they do)....More
