Alexandria (E) - Egypt Highlights:
Cairo, Pyramids, El Alamein
Established by Alexander the Great as early as 332 BC, Alexandria was once the greatest city of the ancient world and one of the three main centres of the Christian world. It lies on the Mediterranean Sea at the western edge of the River Nile delta, about 183 km (114 miles) northwest of Cairo. The city's impressive Graeco-Roman Museum houses some 40,000 relics, providing insight into the long religious history of the many civilizations of Alexandria. Other highlights include the Roman Amphitheatre, the royal family's Montazah Palace and Fort Qait Bey, built upon the foundations of the destroyed Pharos Lighthouse, formerly one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Also visit the Catacombs or Pompey's Pillar or take a stroll on the seafront boulevards, reflecting a more recent era. Alexandria also gives access to El Alamein and Cairo, capital of Egypt and the largest city in Africa.

The legendary reputation of ancient Alexandria and the story of Anthony and Cleopatra survived a thousand years of decline following the Arab conquests. Nearly all traces of the Greco-Roman city disappeared and when Napoleon invaded Egypt in 1798, Alexandria was only a fishing village. The modern city and port that flourished on the back of the cotton boom in the 19th century has, therefore, little in common with the Alexandria of the past.
