The next day, we had a early breakfast and left at 7am for Alexandria. Its located about 220 kms away from Alexandria. The traffic in Cairo is crazy, so we took about 3 n half hours to reach. It was just a day trip.
We first visited Pompeii's Pillar. It was a beautiful historic site.
Then we headed to the Catacombs. Discovered by a donkey, this place was fascinating. U keep going underground into a dark space where bodies were buried millenials ago.
We then headed to Qaitbay Fortress. Its d best Fort/Palace I've seen till now. And I've seen a lot of them. Located on the edge of Mediterranean Sea, this Sandstone structure just steals ur heart.
Next we went to the New Alexandria Library, u can get lost here for hours if ur a bibliophile.
Our last visit was Montaza Palace Gardens. Very well maintained, these gardens were so picturesque.
Dinner was traditional Egyptian food Koshari, it's vegetarian btw.
