Roman Amphitheatre Reviews
Up to my knowledge this is the only Amphitheatre from the Roman period discovered in Egypt, and one of the most important touristic sites in Alexandria, I enjoyed visiting it, and highly recommend it. more »
Un lugar donde se siente como si los actores fueran a salir en cualquier momento, o algún bardo, o un poeta!! more »A place where it feels like the actors are going out at any time, or some bard, or a poet!!
There's a focal point in the theater (you can see it on the ground), once you stand on it the whole audio environment changes, as though you have been put inside some enclosed facility. Sounds become curved your way :-) very peculiar experience. Otherwise, a mix of Greek and Roman stuff, preserved in pretty good shape. Most probably, some university or something
It's a very beautiful setting but as usual badly maintain and hardly find some old panels with the item description. It will be great, if they could make a coffee shop inside. People could enjoy the view and nice air around, as in the city is so dusty and gassed from the thousands of old cars running around. Dont forget to look at the Birds Roman mosaics hiding somewhere at the back of the site.
