The harbour of Alexandria

Discover this beautiful destination's mix of ancient and modern attractions.

Founded by Alexander the Great, the coastal city of Alexandria blends Egyptian heritage with a distinctly Mediterranean flair.

Let Alexandria's juxtaposition of ancient sites like Roman amphitheaters alongside modern skylines and Mediterranean style capture your imagination on this coastal excursion.

Journey underground into Alexandria's eerie Roman catacombs carved into the bedrock. These subterranean tombs provide a fascinating look into ancient burial practices.

The 15th-century fortress of the Qaitbay Citadel is built on the site of Alexandria's ancient lighthouse, and offers breathtaking Mediterranean views. Explore the citadel's historic walls and scenic surroundings.

For those mourning the loss of the Library of Alexandria, you can visit its striking modern iteration, which pays tribute to the ancient version. Admire the impressive architecture and learn about its vast literary collections.

Take an atmospheric stroll along Alexandria's Corniche, a lively waterfront promenade lined with restaurants, cafes, and people watching opportunities galore.

Visit the Montazah Palace Gardens, lush royal gardens surrounding the former monarchy's palace provide a tranquil outdoor retreat. Wander the scenic grounds, bridges, and beaches.
