Day 2: A Day trip to AlexandriaAlexandria might not have the grand monuments like Pyramids, but is does have a great waterfront view and is a less crowded than Cairo. This pleasant sea side town overlooking the blue Mediterranean Sea has a host of delights. Visit the Citadel of Qaitbey (an imposing 15th century fort build to protect the city against the Ottomans), Alexandria National Museum, Pompeii Pillar and the New Library of Alexandria. The New Library of Alexandria or Bibliotheca Alexandria is one of the best libraries in Middle East. The library building too is an architectural delight. If you are a bibliophile like me, you would definitely want to visit this great library.
This Mediterranean City, founded by Alexander the Great, has many unique attractions. Spent the day viewing the relics of a bygone age; these are the highlight of Alexandria. Visited sites such as Pompeii's Pillar, the only Amphitheatre built by the Romans in Egypt, Catacomb and more.
