Im a history buff so this was a must see for me... I loved it. Wished the Villa of the Birds didnt require another ticket but security is pretty lax

Was not impressed with this site I must say, felt like just another hole in the ground to attract tourist. Was not worth the visit I think.

One of the few amphitheaters that have been re-purposed for today's use. Local concerts and theater is staged here. Small but fairly complete.

After having seen Roman amphitheaters in other places like Italy, England, and Jordan, this was very disappointing. Its small...about 1/20th of the size of others but still a little cool if you have already visited other sites like the citadel.

It's just a short walk from the train station. Google maps will get you there. I found it difficult to speak to locals compared to Cairo, but if you have a map, hand gestures should suffice. Free entry. 10 minute excursion you should fit in, if you are there for one day.

This site was clean and that was surprisingly. This is more a small theatre than an amphitheatre for sporting events. It's a great place to sit and dwell on the activities of the past occupants.

the place is mediocre , it doesn't have much to see , if you have been to the amphitheatre in rome or malaga there is no need to visit this place cause it basically has nothing to see other than the egyptian employers, if not you could pay it a visit but what's in the photo is just what you...
