This is an unexpected place to visit. you have to descend a steep staircase and when you reach the bottom there is not much to see. You walk around a few chambers, but after seeing all the other Egyption sites this is pretty boring.

You might as well go there if you are in Alexandria. It is a nice short visit that should not take more than 30 minutes. One of the tombs was closed but the other one was good.

This is a very small tomb with not a whole lot to really see. I spent about 25 minutes there and had seen everything, if not read all of the broken English information boards. Save your time and skip this.
