Alexandria

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fort Qaitbey and Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa. Get out of town with these interesting Alexandria side-trips: El Alamein (El Alamein War Cemetery & Deutsche Kriegsgraeberstatte). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Mamoura Beach, take in the views from Stanley Bridge, steep yourself in history at King Farouk Palace, and take a leisurely stroll along Corniche.
