Roman Amphitheatre Reviews
Nice place to walk around for an hour, with the added bonus of some of the ruin artefacts from subsea alexandria that have been saved from the ocean and stored there. Pleasant surroundings and a few s... more »
エジプトにはローマ時代の遺跡がほとんどないため興味を持ちカイロから鉄道で見に来ました。 カイロからの駅から歩いてすぐの場所にあり、わかりやすいです。 外からでも見えますが、しっかり見たいため入場。入ってすぐ左手の建物にトイレがありますが、管理人のバクシーシ攻撃を受けます。 遺跡は思ったよりしっかり残っており、規模もそこそこありました。アレクサンドリアという街が持つ歴史ロマンを感じる場所です。 more »I was interested in the Egypt because there were few Roman ruins and came to see by train from Cairo. It is a short walk from Cairo station and is easy to understand. I can see it from the outside, but I want to see it well. There is a restroom in the building on the left as soon as it enters, but the management person's Bakashi attack is received. The ruins remained firmly than I thought, and there was a moderate scale. It is a place to feel the history romance of the City of Alexandria.
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.
