Alexandria is the second largest city in Egypt. Being one of the major Mediterranean ports in the country, Alexandria boasts stunning coastlines and beachfronts. Founded by Alexander the Great, the city has a rich history, and is studded with museums, historical neighborhoods, and archaeological parks. The lighthouse of Alexandria was once regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world.
With a 32 km coastline, Alexandria hosts the Citadel of Qaitbay, Montazah palace, Bibliotheca library (one of the world's largest libraries) and the Roman Theater; coincidentally, it is also where Julius Caesar was thought to be besieged. Most of the attractions in Alexandria lie on or near the Corniche, which stretches for several kilometers. The city is also a great place for diving with underwater ancient ruins. Dining next to the corniche in picturesque cafes and getting lost in the serenity of the vast ocean are some experiences to look forward to while in Alexandria.
Alexandria stretches east to west along the shore for around 50km. A small village with a modern metropolitan vibe, it holds utmost importance in the development of Egypt. Being a significant harbour and a hub for philosophers and scholars, the city has profoundly contributed to the modern world. Ruled by Queen Cleopatra and founded by Alexander the Great, visiting Alexandria will undoubtedly take you a step forward into the history of the Egyptian empire.
