It started with eleven galleries, and has been gradually enlarged in later renovation stages the 25th gallery was inaugurated in 1984. It contains a very big variety of coins from different countries. The collection, which covers the period from the 3rd century BC to the 7th century AD, is a fascinating record of civilization in the process of change as religions merged and society evolved. Also the museum contains hundreds of precious antiques.

Then proceed to visit the catacomb of Kom El-Shuqafa which is one of Alexandria most memorable monuments. Kom El-Shuqafa meaning "Mound of Shards" or "Potsherds." Its actual ancient Egyptian name was Ra-Qedil. The catacombs are unique both for their plan and for its decoration which represents a melding and mixing of the cultures and traditions of the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans.

Then, we find decorations related to ancient Egyptian themes, but with an amazing twist that makes them quite unlike anything else in the world. Then proceed to visit The Roman Amphitheatre in Alexandria. Every town in ancient Rome had an amphitheater, which means, "double theatre". They were grand and impressive, shaped in a half circle, open to the sky, and might have held 100.000 people. The stage had no curtain; it was just a stone platform. Imagine yourself in ancient Alexandria, in the Roman theatre on a hot afternoon.

All you can smell is the Mediterranean mist. All you can see are wild beasts, driven in through the tall doorway, and the fighters coming in from all around the floor. Famous jockeys and gladiators are walking in, and then the excitement begins. Then proceed to visit the Muntazah Complex . This 115-acre complex is surrounded by great walls from the south, east, and west and with the beach on its north side. This area used to belong to the Mohamed Ali family that ruled Egypt from the mid 19th century until 1952. The construction was started in 1892 by King Abbas II, who built a large palace inside the complex called the Salamlek.

In 1932, King Fuad built a larger palace and called it the Haramlik. His son, King Farouk, built a bridge to the sea to act as a water front. The rest of the 115 acres is nothing but beautiful gardens. Palm trees and gazelles cover the area. This is a wonderful spot to enjoy the beauty of Alexandria.
