Alexandria Attractions

Alexandria, the Mediterranean’s bride, offers a plethora of attractions to explore. It was founded by Alexander the Great. It was ruled by Queen Cleopatra. The birth and early history of Alexandria is littered with well-known names. The Great Library of Alexandria and the gigantic Pharos Lighthouse, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, were located in this brilliant gem of a city on the Mediterranean.

Alexandria was a bohemian tourist destination in more recent times, from the late 19th century through the 1950s, with a glittering cast of writers, poets, and painters who made the city their home. Despite the fact that, unlike Cairo and Luxor, Alexandria has few genuine ancient sites and things to do, it is one of the finest places to visit in Egypt for capturing a sense of days gone by grandeur. Our list of the best attractions and things to do in Alexandria will help you plan your vacation.
