Alexandria

Whether you come for a short trip or stay for a week, Alexandria is the kind of place that will remain in your heart forever.

This is an area of Alexandria - Mediterranean Coast that roughly 3,800,000 people reside in.

It is about 110 miles northwest of Cairo, the national capital. It's also approximately 40 miles west of Damanhur.

For some outdoor time, head to the area's beloved parks and public gardens. Pull off your shoes and feel the grass underfoot at the Shallalat Gardens, Lake Maryut and the Antoniades Garden.

If you'd appreciate a bit of rest and relaxation, take an invigorating walk along the coastline and enjoy the fresh, salty air at Montazah Beach.

There's nothing quite like spending some time out among nature to recharge your batteries. When you feel the urge to escape the hustle and bustle, make your way over to Western Harbour.

The area's exhibition spaces are a treasure trove of fascinating tales and achievements. The Alexandria National Museum and the Royal Jewellery Museum offer a range of displays and collections that are bound to keep you captivated. You might also want to consider a visit to the El Alamein Museum and the Graeco-Roman Museum.

If you want to check out some art, stop off at the Mahmoud Said Museum and peruse their striking pieces.

Journey through the silent hallways and examine the exhibits showcased at the Cavafy Museum.

To learn about the people and places of this region's past, make sure you visit its many historic structures and monuments. Start the local history tour at Pompey's Pillar or the Unknown Soldier. When it comes to bygone times, there's always more to discover. The Roman Theatre and the Alexandria University are two more insightful places to stop by.

Be sure to make time to watch the water flow under Stanly Bridge. This heritage structure has played a vital role in connecting the city's residents.

In troubled times, Qaitbay Fortress and Fort Qaitbey helped guard Alexandria from enemy attacks. If you have an interest in the military history of the region, their battered walls will tell you everything you need to know.

The impressive manors and palaces of the region are always popular with visitors. Admire artworks and lavish furnishings and stroll through the lawns and gardens at Montazah Palace, Ras el-Tin Palace and King Farouk Palace.

Whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not, you're sure to enjoy a visit to the Attarine Mosque and the Abul-Abbas Mosque. If you'd like to see some more religious sites, keep an eye out for tours at St. Mark's Coptic Cathedral and the Terbana Mosque.

Why not take a stroll through Manshia Square? This much-loved public space is a terrific place to start if you'd like to set out and see the surrounding city.

Learn all about the stories of women and men who helped make Alexandria the place it is today at some of its memorial sites, such as the Italian Cemetery and German Cemetery. If you want to continue on your trip down memory lane, you could also take a look at Allied Cemetery and the Catacombs of Kom es-Shoqafa.

Enjoy a spot of window shopping and buy a few gifts at a few of the area's malls and markets, such as Green Plaza Mall and San Stefano Grand Plaza.

See local and touring talent strut their stuff at the Roman Amphitheatre or the Al-Salam Theater.

Many tourists have wonderful time at Leukaspis. Stanley Bridge is also not to be forgotten.
