  • Definitely not worth the long journey from Alexandria or Cairo. I think Egypt realizes it's one of their only historical sites tourists come to see so they recently redid it but the museum can be seen in under an hour if you read every little description (which is poorly translated from Arabic to English). It's a shame to see the coastline over developed and completely demolished too. Soon the cemeteries will be surrounded by Four Seasons and Hilton Hotels.
