This is the ruins of a Roman amphitheatre which was later excavated. Students of history will find this attraction very interesting. The semicircular open air theatre was used for music programmes. There are a few old lecture theatres which shows how the Roman students were...More

We were on our way to Pompey's Pillar and stopped by here for a minute. Having seen other Roman Amphitheatres, I knew what it was in an instant. Like others have said, take a look from the outside (there are roads running almost all the...More

Although excavation is ongoing at the Amphitheater it is still worth one's time. It is the oldest Roman theater in Egypt. To me it's another reminder of how expansive the Roman Empire extended. You will also see a magnificent villa of birds and Bacchus mosaic.

Lots of excavation work currently going on as they’ve discovered a Roman villa and bath house adjacent. It’s still definitely worth a visit and a very peaceful place to sit in the afternoon. They’ve also got some ruins there from the Lighthouse of Pharos

This I could have skipped. The most interesting part was watching the men move huge bags of dirt on their backs for the ongoing construction.

In the midst of traffic mayhem that is Alexandria, this excavation is a bit tranquility. The oldest surviving Roman theatre in Egypt and maybe even more important, the Villa of the Birds, with its magnificent mosaics of birds and a Bacchus mosaic (from elsewhere in...More

According to our guide there is some thought that this site is in fact a university. The amphitheater was used as a lecture hall...try out the echo and sound effects! Other rooms are thought to be classrooms and dormitories. There is also a Roman bath....More
