Alexandria is of great historical significance to Egypt. Named after Alexandria the Great, the city once housed the lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the ancient wonders of the world. Unfortunately, this wonder has since been lost to the waves of time. But you can still make a day trip to Alexandria from Cairo. Many hotels can arrange this tour for you, and most will tours include transportation, meals, and hotel pickup.

one of the most beautiful towns in northern Egypt. Amazed by the "snöhetta" designed new library and its surroundings. Nice people and good restaurants if you give them a chans. Don´t misstrust for waiting. They are egyptiens!

We went to this port city as an entry to Cairo. The location of the port is not that great but the city itself is very nice. The drive to Cairo is quite long so make sure you plan accordingly.
