This underground structure goes three levels down and contains some of the fascinating underground tombs to be seen ever. They were built to serve as a burial ground for mostly Romans and you can see Egyptian style of architecture also.
Do visit this place if you are in Alexandria to see the grandeur of a tomb made underground.

This site is certainly amazing with a lot of fascinating history. However if you are expecting it tombs that are as incredible as the tombs in Luxor then you’ll need to moderate your expectations. These were created at the end of the pharaonic period so the style is quite different and less complex. Still, it is quite remarkable.

After enjoying all Egypt has to offer from their great civilizations, take a tour of the Roman era catacombs. Amazing to think it was carved from rock and marvel at how the different levels of society were prepared for the everlasting and their final resting places

If you don't want your expensive dslr camera been taken away, put it in your backpack before buying ticket, otherwise you have to leave it at the door, with lockers, just a piece of paper to claim it later.
A good flashlight will be very handy, your cellphone light will not do much.

It started out to be burial chamber for a noble family, then became a common burial place, even for domesticate animals, between 2nd and 4th century AD. Amalgamated influence of Greek, Roman and ancient Egyptian art can be found in this place. The visit was shorter than expected. Entrance fee is 60 EGP (as of December 2017).
