Known for its turbulent and eventful past, the port city of Alexandria retains a historic charm and atmosphere, boasting thousands of years of Egypt's cultural heritage.
Change things up with these side-trips from Alexandria: El Alamein (El Alamein War Cemetery, Deutsche Kriegsgraeberstatte, & more) and Dahab reef (in Kawm ad Dahab). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Montazah Palace Gardens, delve into the distant past at Roman Amphitheatre, take in the views from Stanley Bridge, and appreciate the history behind Pompey's Pillar.
