Follow in the footsteps of Alexander the Great — and later, Mark Antony and Cleopatra — with a visit to the great port city he founded in 331 BCE. Known as the "Pearl of the Mediterranean," Alexandria’s coastal climate and cultural flavor set it apart from the Egyptian destinations you’ve visited so far. Thanks to its storied past, Alexandria boasts a wealth of cultural and historic sites, many of which you’ll tour during your stay.
Explore the city’s rich past as a center of learning at the celebrated Bibliotheca Alexandrina. Discover the mysterious underground world of its ancient Greco-Roman catacombs. Confront more recent history at the solemn El Alamein War Cemetery. You’ll also enjoy visits to the Alexandria National Museum, Roman Amphitheatre, and Pompey’s Pillar.
