Dating from the 2nd Century AD you can see the marble seats, mosaic flooring and columns that formed part of the original architecture of this ampitheatre.
This is, I think, the only Roman Theatre in Egypt.
Excavations of the theatre and a nearby Graeco-Roman Street, houses and shops are still on going.
Cost: 6.00 Egyptian Pounds each
We were allowed to take pictures of the amphitheatre but not of the current excavations

Address: Sharia Salman Yousuf
Directions: Quite near the train station and Midan Gomhuriyya.
