Alexandria

Founded by Alexander the Great, Alexandria was the capital of Egypt for close to 1000 years, despite changing powers from Rome to Byzantine to Persia throughout those years. This is where the famous Pharos Lighthouse, one of the tallest structures of its time, as well as the Library of Alexandria, a center for philosophers and scientists to share their knowledge, was located before they were destroyed. It is currently the second largest city in Egypt and the largest seaport, situated in the north on the Mediterranean Sea coast.

Alexandria

Citadel of Qaitbay

This beautiful fortress is an icon of Alexandria, considered one of the most important defensive strongholds of the area. It overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and the city and is built on the ruins of the legendary Pharos Lighthouse of Alexandria (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World) by Sultan Qait Bay around 1480 to protect the city from enemies approaching by sea.

Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa

Considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Medieval World, the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa contains architecture, tombs, and statues of the Egyptian culture with great influence from Greece and Rome.

Alexandria National Museum

This museum houses many historical artifacts that are exhibited chronologically. The basement displays pieces from Prehistoric and Pharaonic times; the first floor is dedicated to the Greco-Roman period; and the second floor offers artifacts from the Coptic and Islamic era.
