Stop At: Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, Mohmad said Al halawane Mohmad said Al halawane, Alexandria 21599 Egypt

Start your visits with the remarkable Greco Roman necropolis in Egypt. The underground Catacomb consist of three layers all below the ground level, however the lower level is currently not open for visit due to the ground water.

Stop At: Pompey's Pillar, Alexandria Egypt

Stop At: Roman Amphitheatre, Raml Station Square At Kom El Dekka near the Roman Museum, Alexandria 21599 Egypt

Drive to the Roman Amphitheatre, the only known one in Egypt from the roman era. The well preserved Amphitheatre was used during the Roman, the Byzantine, and the Early Islamic era. It was used for music ceremonies and later as a conference hall. Earlier, the Amphitheatre had ceilings with domes that were based upon large columns to protect the audience from sun and rain. Moreover, these domes were used to magnify the sound of the music and the chants during different performances. Unfortunately, they were all destroyed.

Don’t miss during the tour to stand on the middle tile facing the audience section and try to speak up; you will notice how this spot magnify your sound due to the semi-circle design of the audience stadium.
