Alexandria Tours

Alexandria was one of the greatest cities in the Hellenic world, second only to Rome in size and wealth, and while it changed hands from Rome to Byzantine and finally Persia, the city stayed the capital of Egypt for a millennium.
 
Alexandria was founded around a small Pharaonic town by Alexander the Great. It remained Egypt's capital for nearly a thousand years, until the Muslim conquest of Egypt in 641 A.D. Alexandria was known because of its lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; its library, the largest library in the ancient world; and the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages.
 
Alexandria is located 220 Km (137 miles) north of Cairo and it extends about 32 km (20 miles) along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in northern Egypt. It is the second-largest city in Egypt, and is the country's largest seaport. It is also an important tourist resort.
 
Tourists visit Alexandria to explore the abundance of archaeological sites that the city has to offer. A visit to the city dowtown and a walk on the corniche in the afternoon or evening is also a Must.
 
The weather in Alexandria is Mediterranean. Between November and March, the temperature average is 12°C (53°F) during the day.  In summer, between April and October, the temperature is around 30°C (85°F) during the day.
 
One or two days are enough to explore the city highlights.
