Introduction

Founded by Alexander the Great, Alexandria still dazzles. The largest seaport in Egypt, Alexandria is both a location of ancient importance and a modern hotspot. The luxury of boating on the Mediterranean coupled with the ancient lore such as the romance between Cleopatra and Mark Antony makes Alexandria a must see. Being the capital of Egypt for a considerable period of time and one of the most remarkable trading and cultural centers in the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria has outstanding distinct historical sites.

There is the Qaitbay Fort, constructed in the 15th century by the famous Mamluk leader, which became a landmark of the city, the Roman Amphitheater; the only one of its kind in Egypt, the famous Library of Alexandria, the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, the largest Roman necropolis in Egypt , Pompey’s Pillar, the remains of an ancient Roman temple, the Mostafa Kamel Necropolis, the Shatby Necropolis, the Greco-Roman Museum, the Alexandria National Museum, and the Royal Jewelry Museum, which hosts a marvellous collection of the valuable belongings of the royal family of Mohamed Ali.
