Alexandria

3.6

Mediterranean's Bride

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. Founded by Alexander the Great, the city saw the rise and fall of many empires and thrived during the Hellenistic and Roman civilizations, as well as the Byzantine era and the Islamic conquest of Egypt. Although its legendary lighthouse and the Great Library no longer stand, you'll discover an abundance of ancient ruins, landmark buildings, and relics on your tour of Alexandria. You can experience the city ambience on a walk along the sweeping waterfront promenade, touring its museums and galleries, or just people watching from a cafe. Alexandria is in Alexandria Governorate. Customize your holiday with our Egypt journey builder to create an adventure that suits you.
