Built in the 2 century AD, the amphitheatre has 13 semicircular tiers made of white and grey marble, with marble seats for up to 800 spectators. After that we will move to Qaitbey Citadel which is one of the most important islamic monuments, built at the place of the former Alexandrian Light House.
After lunch we will visit the famous Alexandrian Library. In contrast to the ancient architecture found throughout Egypt, the Norwegian-designed building is a striking piece of the modern design.
